Phil Jackson

Phil Jackson has a message for Kendrick Lamar after being mentioned in his latest song


Kendrick Lamar set the hip-hop world ablaze on Tuesday, after dropping a verse in the Big Sean song ‘Control’ that many believe to be among the year’s best.

Lamar name-checked several other rappers on the track, the lyrics of which can be read here in their entirety — though many of them (as you should have already guessed) would be considered “not safe for work.”

He also managed to work in the name of Phil Jackson.

The line goes like this: “If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me. I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable …”

Discussion of Lamar’s verse was omnipresent online, so it’s perhaps not too surprising that someone reached out to Jackson via Twitter to see if he had any thoughts on being mentioned.

As it turned out, he did, and sent a message to Lamar in response.

Even in retirement, Phil Jackson remains winning.

PBT Extra bold prediction previews: Clippers ready to win West?

With our PBT Extra videos, we are previewing the entire NBA by using bold predictions, starting in the Pacific Division (we already did the Warriors).

Some of those predictions come from fans on Twitter where I had sent out a request, including the bold prediction for the Clippers.

It could happen, they are certainly contenders. But two things need to happen.

The big one is their defense, which was middle of the pack last season, needs to move into the top 10 (and DeAndre Jordan needs to play consistently like a guy who is third in Defensive Player of the Year voting).

Second is the new and improved bench unit of Lance Stephenson, Josh Smith, and Jamal Crawford (he’s not new) need to mesh into a unit. Those are three guys who like to create for themselves and make questionable shot choices, getting them play well with others could be a bumpy road.

Stephen Curry said the defending-champion Warriors would have no problem picking up where they left off.

His swagger certainly remains intact.
