Not only is Phil Jackson the greatest coach of all time, he’s also the most interesting man in the world.
A day after joining Twitter, the Zen Master’s account is already nothing short of amazing.
Yesterday Jackson tweeted “11 champ;ipnsikp[ ringhs,” and I instantly followed, thinking Phillip was ill-advisedly cranking out brain farts while hallucinating off peyote.
Turns out, the joke was on the Twitterverse as Jackson proved that not only can he throw his rings in our face – and write a book about it too – but he can be a social media maven as well.
If Jackson can figure out Twitter this quick, he surely would have figured out the Lakers by now, drawing up pick-and-rolls 140 characters at a time.
Heck, if Robert Sacre can hold an iPad as good as he does a roster spot, Jackson could have cured the eighth-place Lakers via Skype.
Now I patiently wait until he joins Instagram and blesses the world with pictures as a mud-covered hippie at Coachella, accompanied with philosophical hashtags.
In the meantime, we’ll just suffice with his pure genius via Twitter.
