The Zen Master at it again!

ESPN: On Friday, Jackson retreated from praise and started posturing when asked if it was difficult to simulate the Suns and their star point guard Steve Nash in practice during the long layoff before Game 1.

“Yeah, because you can’t carry the ball like he does in practice,” Jackson said, smiling as he moved his arm and turned over his palm, the symbol for an illegal carry in the unofficial sign language of basketball. “You can’t pick that ball up and run with it.”

    Phil is at it again.
    He is giving the refs a heads up about Nash’s tendency to carry the ball without mentioning the officials at all, so this way he doesn’t get fined.
    There is more to Phil than people know. He is probably the smartest of all coaches. That is why we need him back next season!

    I just smile when i read these sort of comments. I wonder how approachable he is in real-life.


    Fcukin Zen Master… I love it! He’ll do something like this for every series to either get into an opposing player’s head or to gain some kinda advantage! At the very least, it’s entertaining as hell!
