George Karl is at home watching Mark Jackson and Mike Woodson.
Phil Jackson is still getting used to being a Twitter master, and today he made a minor mistake even though it was cute. Phil took some time to congratulate George Karl on winning the Coach of the Year (2012-2013), however it was the wrong account. The sentiment was there, though.
