Phil Jackson joins Twitter
Former Lakers coach Phil Jackson has finally joined Twitter.
Jackson is readying the release of his latest book, “Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success.” During his last stint with the Lakers he expressed skepticism as to the need and purpose of Twitter.
Already with more than 20,000 followers, Jackson has yet to actually tweet.
His fiancée, Lakers executive Jeanie Buss, confirmed that it is indeed Jackson’s account.
Please welcome Phil Jackson to twitter @philjackson11 — Jeanie Buss (@JeanieBuss) March 27, 2013
The Lakers toyed with bringing Jackson back after firing Mike Brown but opted instead to hire Mike D’Antoni. Jackson won five championships with the Lakers and six with the Chicago Bulls.
All things Lakers, all the time.
