What is former legendary Chicago Bulls and L.A. Lakers coach Phil Jackson up to now? Well, he didn’t reach agreement with the Brooklyn Nets to be their coach. And his first Tweet was…he got off to kind of a “rough start.” However, the second tweet from Phil Jackson is in fact a much better story. He showed that he has quite a sense of humor about himself, and came back strong with his second less than 140 character micro-blog offering. And Phil Jackson then mastered the 140 or characters or less medium by live-tweeting the college basketball title game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Michigan Wolverines. So what’s Phil Jackson up to now? The New York Times wrote a rather fawning and obsequious blog comparing Phil Jackson to Rembrandt in the title and Mozart in the opening paragraph: below, was of Jordan’s final two plays against Utah in the 1998 Finals: a layup that got the Bulls within one and then the famous game-winning jump shot that ended (almost) his career. Check out: Sketches From the Play Master – Phil Jackson’s diagrams of Michael Jordan’s famous 1998 game-winning jump shot and other plays. Pretty cool graphics and pic though eh? And New York Times magazine has a new feature story on him: What I can confirm, because I saw it with my own eyes, is that on the afternoon of Friday, May 3, Phil Jackson went shopping for groceries. I was there. I witnessed Jackson — 13-time N.B.A. champion, winningest coach in basketball history, mystical Zen spirit guide to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal — pick out a crusty loaf of whole-wheat bread and drop it in his basket. I saw him look at bamboo cutting boards and elect not to buy one. EXCITING!!! Hey, we all respect and revere the work of both Phil Jackson, the forever Zen Master, and the New York Times, the “paper of record.” However, I think readers of this post are certainly figuring out that today is a very slow news day.
