Phil Jackson gets honorary ND doctorate

    Welcome in Dr. Phil… er… let’s not call him that though. In all seriousness, congrats to Dr. P-Jax…

    AP: Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson accepted an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, the University of North Dakota, and asked the school to think hard about its Fighting Sioux nickname and logo. He also asked for a favor: “Please don’t call me Dr. Phil.”
