This team and Phil ain’t messin’ around!
RealGM: Lakers coach Phil Jackson has asked his players to leave their cell phones off until the Finals are over.
“Coach Phil Jackson told us to turn our cellphones off for the next two weeks and not to talk to anybody,” center Andrew Bynum told the Los Angeles Times.
Jackson is trying to limit distractions while the team is in Orlando. Rather than staying downtown, the Lakers will stay in a hotel miles away.
