Phil Jackson Joins Twitter
Coach Phil Jackson has joined Twitter – that’s a good thing.
Whatever device he uses to type on – that’s the funny thing!

Need to work on that auto-correct Phil!
Check out his first, and only tweet thus far.
In Eleven Rings, Jackson candidly describes how he:
- Learned the secrets of mindfulness and team chemistry while playing for the champion New York Knicks in the 1970s
- Managed Michael Jordan, the greatest player in the world, and got him to embrace selflessness, even if it meant losing a scoring title
- Forged successful teams out of players of varying abilities by getting them to trust one another and perform in sync
- Inspired Dennis Rodman and other “uncoachable” personalities to devote themselves to something larger than themselves
- Transformed Kobe Bryant from a rebellious teenager into a mature leader of a championship team.
H/T to @lagilliland1 for letting me know about Jackson’s tweet.
