Kobe to Magic: Phil’s Leaving

Phil Jackson has already told Magic Johnson that this past season with the Lakers would be his last.  He told Magic that last year, but we all know how quickly things can change in professional sports — especially when you’re coming off back-to-back championship seasons.  Sometimes that makes it easier to leave, other times it…Read More

Phil Jackson Tells His Players Celtics Know How to Lose Games

I have mixed feelings about posting this video.

Chris Rock Punked by Phil Jackson During Interview with Doris Burke

As seriously as some people take the NBA, I’m glad that ABC is there to remind us that it’s nothing more than entertainment. That’s the message they were trying to send, right?

David Stern may have threatened to suspend coaches who influence the referees but that didn’t stop Lakers coach Phil Jackson from letting loose Friday. The creative Zen Master delivered two knockouts with one punch and there probably isn’t a whole lot Stern can do about it. Much like when Phil got inside Kevin Durant’s head…Read More

Phil Jackson Priming Officials, Durant Before Start of Playoffs

Phil Jackson is obviously trying to manipulate NBA officials before the playoffs begin.  He’s also trying to get into the head of Oklahoma City Thunder star forward Kevin Durant.  Jackson’s Lakers are one day away from setting out to defend their NBA title, and Phil has been fined twice in the past two weeks for…Read More

Phil Jackson: Dennis Rodman Is a Hall of Famer ‘Without a Doubt’

Last year’s class of players inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame was amongst the best ever — Michael Jordan, David Robinson, and John Stockton.
