When I was watching the Game 2 presser a couple nights ago it hit me for the first time that this is Phil's last year.

It really makes you think how much Jackson has meant to the organization and to our Laker fanhood. Definitely gonna miss this guy. Just makes it more imperative that this Lakers team sends him off by winning a championship this June.

Always keep an open mind and a compassionate heart.

Approach the game with no preset agendas and you'll probably come away surprised at your overall efforts.

Here are a few quotes lobbed at the City of New Orleans before tip-off of game 6 ... they're funny and probably true but down right mean!

The local paper, the Times-Picayune, had a story at the top of the front page of the paper, not the front page of the sports section, with Jackson pointing and a headline WHY DOES HE HATE US? So another city had taken the bait.

It may have ended there, Jackson in full-tweak mode, except he was asked about an hour before tipoff and seemed bothered enough to ask if anyone from the paper was among the media scrum. None were present. It could have ended there.

Jackson, though, went on about the water in New Orleans:
"Well, it is the bottom of the country, is it not? And all the sludge comes out of the Plains states and all the irrigation and the insecticides and everything."


A remark about the above quote - This referred to the comment Jackson made before Game 3:
“I refuse to comment on the grounds that I might incriminate myself,” Jackson said of his feelings about New Orleans during a shootaround last Friday before Game 3. Before adding: “Just don’t drink the water.”


The article continues ...

Jackson takes to the raised head table in the interview room, and the questions stick to the game, to the series, to the work ahead in the next series. All basketball. He finishes and gets up.
He stops as he is standing.

"And by the way," Jackson says as an aside, "I drank the water today in New Orleans, for those people that are from New Orleans. I did. Swear to God. I didn't mean to. But I drank it."


From the article here: http://www.nba.com/2011/news/features/scott_howard_cooper/04/29/lakers.swagger/index.html

The Times-Picayune Article here:
http://www.nola.com/hornets/index.ssf/2011/04/lakers_coach_phil_jackson_show.html

There's a history with the NO comments. He made a few several years ago and inspired the article by the Times-Picayune. Here's one particular quote that is just really bad but it made me laugh and then I wanted to shower ...

“Well, it smells better in Oklahoma,” Jackson dead-panned in 2006 when the New Orleans Hornets were cast to Oklahoma City in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. “I have to say I miss that mildew smell from New Orleans that permeates the air.”


Ouch.

Phil fired the first lob by questioning the Mavs bigs ... Haha! Brilliant!!

As I mentioned toward the end of my column about the Lakers’ smarts being one of their unheralded qualities, the Mavericks are one of the few teams with the size that means they can actually match up with and beat the Lakers in a playoff series.

Phil Jackson acknowledged that Thursday night when talking about the Mavericks.

“Dallas does have matchup size,” Jackson said. “They are big, and (Dirk) Nowitzki is a 7-footer and so is their center, Tyson Chandler. Obviously (Brendan) Haywood is a 7-footer. So they have size. But these guys (on the Lakers) have proven their dominance by their size. This is the reason why we are champions.
:bow:

I can't wait to see what he says about Cuban during this series. This should be a lot of fun!!!

Yes, it is the playoffs, Phillip. You're on your last stand, and your team is down 0-2... reeling on the ropes.

Here's a future PJ presser quote:

Why do away with this thread? I like to remember the funny things Phil has said over the years.
