What Does Phil Jackson Want?
Hope you can reach this hysterical WSJ article on how desperate the hapless New York Knicks are to hire their former reserve Phil Jackson, proud owner of eleven (!) NBA rings, to coach their team:
Jackson was a neighbor during his astonishing 6 championship run in Chicago (lived a half a mile away in Bannockburn and never saw him once). It was a privilege to watch him work his magic: coaxing intensity and effort from a bunch of high strung, very highly paid kids, the Chicago Bulls,who clearly revered him, and wouldn’t have done what they did without his guidance. The fact that he did it again in LA shows it was him, not the players, that made the difference.
I’d suggest him as a Presidential candidate, but he’s WAY too cool to do something so foolish, which is why I don’t think the Knicks can hire him.
This is an extraordinary leader who has earned his rest in Montana!
