Phil Jackson responds to Kendrick Lamar song lyric

Phil JacksonPhil Jackson responded to rapper Kendrick Lamar, who mentioned the former Los Angeles Lakers coach in a song lyric.

In the lyrics for “Control,” Lamar says, “If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me/I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable.”

“Uncoachable” is how Jackson described Kobe Bryant in his 2004 book “The Last Season” about coaching the Lakers. The Lakers were coming off a disappointing loss to the Detroit Pistons in the NBA Finals, and Jackson decided to take a season off. He got along much better with Kobe after returning to coach the team a season later.

Anyway, after learning that he was mentioned in Lamar’s song, Jackson sent the following tweet to the rapper:

That’s right, Kendrick Lamar, you may think you’re cocky and uncoachable and unsociable, but Phil Jackson says everyone can use a mentor. That goes for you, too.
