Jackson sent the following tweet to Lamar while the rapper was performing during Saturday night’s festivities at NBA All-Star Weekend:
@kendricklamar hey you coachable? Go get the dunkathon started.

The dunk contest — the main attraction for Saturday night’s festivities during All-Star Weekend — was delayed because of Lamar’s performance. Some people were growing impatient and wanted to watch the dunk contest immediately after the 3-point competition, but viewers were forced to wait for Lamar’s set to end. I guess that was Phil’s way of telling Lamar to get a move on it.
In case you forgot, Lamar and Phil have history going back to the summer when Kendrick mentioned Phil in a song and the coach responded.
