Phil Jackson has received many accolades in his professional life. The Johnny Bach Award. The Johnny Bach Award is presented annually at the Tip-Off Dinner to the individual who has had substantial and lasting impact on the sport of basketball and who best emulates Mr.
The Spurs made 13 3-pointers in their victory on Tuesday night, and Jackson was asked if too much penetration was leading to open outside shooters. The film, which won three Oscars, depicts two cowboys who conceal their homosexual affair. It was a poor attempt at humor and I deserved to be reprimanded by the NBA.
The Spurs made 13 three-pointers in their victory on Tuesday night, and Jackson was asked if too much penetration was leading to open outside shooters. For their part, the NBA made Jackson promise to watch his mouth. And, for the love of God, get some new material!
This must be what it was like to see Willie Mays fall down in the New York Mets outfield at 42 years old. This must be what it was like to see Frank Sinatra slurring his words and forgetting his lyrics on stage at the end. New York Knicks president Phil Jackson is losing it. Or, when it came to building teams instead of coaching them, perhaps he never had it.
The mastermind behind the San Antonio Spurs' success — the man who created what has long been regarded as the NBA's model franchise — has gone on record as stating that the Knicks have hit a home run by bringing in the Zen Master to preside over their basketball operations. Gregg Popovich was out in Los Angeles the other day, calling the move "fantastic," even though Jackson has never run a basketball team or spent a day in an NBA front office. He's a smart man.
As a head coach for the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson often assigned players books to read that he thought would benefit their mentality and approach to the game. Who is Carmelo Anthony? A man medieval in his faith in absolutes.
Jackson had back surgery when he played for the Knicks, missing the entire championship season because of it. But I've never thought of it as ultimately a pain medication for that type of situation. I know ocular things, stomach, digestive issues and other things, I think it is regarded quite highly.
Phil Jackson recently called out Kobe Bryant in a press conference after yet another loss and the team is in shambles right now. All is not well in Laker—land and the team has many issues that they need to quickly address if they want to make a run at a three—peat and solidify themselves as a dynasty. With age and injuries starting to catch up to the team, not to mention Jackson's retirement looming, is the end really near for the Lakers and their recent dominance?
Jackson, who served as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls, said he'd "never run into" a gay professional basketball player throughout his career. When asked if the organizations needed to be more inclusive towards gay players, the time NBA champion coach called the question "ridiculous," before noting, "There's no inclusiveness to be had. The prospect of openly gay male players in professional sports has become a matter of heated debate in recent weeks, after San Francisco 49ers player Chris Culliver told Artie Lange that he would not welcome gay players in the NFL or on his team.
The question, from Huffington Post editor Alana Horowitz: "I'm wondering if you think that organizations and players and athletes need to be more inclusive of gay athletes and more welcoming toward the gay community in general. Jackson's response: "That's a ridiculous question. None of us have probably ever seen it in all our careers.
