The Zen Master

“A lot of things can happen. We’re young enough and dumb enough to be able to do this.”

– Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson on his team’s believing it can still win the series after falling down 3-1 to the Boston Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals

I am the Zen master. Must maintain my poise.

Phil Jackson must be Nostradamus. He can freaking see the future! Unfortunately he must have glimpsed doomsday and just kept mum about it. Or seeing his team lose in six games scared the hell out of his witty mind.

Phil Jackson believes his team (the LA Fakers led by the fake Michael Jordan) is “young enough and dumb enough” to be able to climb against a 3-1 series deficit and win 3 straight games (including games 6 and 7 in Boston) to win the NBA Finals.

Turns out he’s right on the money. The LA Faker’s players are young enough and the coach is dumb enough for them to lose by 39 points in a championship clinching game.

All hail the Zen Master.
