Phil Jackson tells Kendrick Lamar to get dunk contest started
Now that Phil Jackson has established a rapport with rapper Kendrick Lamar, he apparently feels comfortable tweeting at the entertainment star whenever he wants.
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.
