Phil Jackson joins Twitter, makes his championship rings his avatar (Picture)
Phil Jackson may no longer be coaching in the NBA, but the Zen Master has discovered a new way to send us his masterful vibes without holding press conferences — Twitter. Jackson officially joined the Twitterverse on Wednesday and had picked up close to 30,000 followers as of 5:00 p.m. EST, despite the fact that he has yet to send a tweet. He has, however, already given us this fantastic avatar:
It may not be as good as that avatar Chad Johnson had during his brief tenure with the Patriots, but it’s very appropriate. Since it’s probably difficult to squeeze 13 championship rings into one picture, Jackson just went with the 11 he won as a head coach. He left out the two he won as a player in 1970 and 1973.
I think I speak for everyone when I say I can’t wait to see what the legend brings to the Twitter world. I feel hypnotized already.
