Phil Jackson to those criticizing Stephen Curry-Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf tweet: ‘Get a grip!’


Phil Jackson tweeted that Stephen Curry reminded him of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf.

That generated plenty of backlash, and today, the Knicks president responded.


It’s worth noting when a comparison is stylistic or qualitative, and there similarities in style between Curry and Abdul-Rauf (at least if you squint hard enough to look past how much better Curry is than Abdul-Rauf).

Of course, Jackson knew that when he sent his initial, vague tweet. And he knew how people would take it.

But he got everyone talking about Phil Jackson, so mission accomplished.
