L.A. Times: Jackson’s expressions of support for Bryant’s criticism of management do not help the team, and Buss deserves better.
So Kobe Bryant has finally found a wingman, somebody to stand beside him and blast away at the Lakers, blowing up bridges, burning down fences, two soldiers standing shoulder to shoulder in the fight for justice and truth.
Good for Bryant, but bad for the Lakers.
Because his wingman is, um, ah, er, their coach.
Charged with healing this summer’s deep wounds, Phil Jackson will apparently show up bearing salt.
Instead of beating down the rebellious Bryant, he is apparently joining him.
Two outlaws working together to steal the last remaining bits of Lakers sanity.
Crybaby Cassidy and the Zendance Kid.
Jackson made his views clear this week in a series of interviews that, in subtler tones, were just as indelibly damaging as Bryant’s tagging spree of several months ago.
