The Ultimate Phil Jackson Whine

OMG, you have got to be f*cking kidding me. Phil Jackson, whose team benefited from the worst refereed game in the history of the National Basketball Association (that was Game 6 of the 2002 Western Conference finals, and don't take my word for it, read what the L.A. Times Columnists say about it today) has the audacity to blame his team's loss tonight on the REFEREES? Wa wa team got fewer foul shots than Leon Powe in 14 minutes...

This is Phil Jackson at his conniving best. What it really demonstrates is that his character is at the level of his current team...which is to say, lacking. Nice comeback in the last seven minutes, sure. But Phil knows, even if he won't admit it in public, that if this Lakers team has to rely on three-point shots to win this series, then they might as well cancel the rest of the games right now. Meanwhile, Red Auerbach is smiling to himself, somewhere.

Oh, great. Wilbon is backing Phil up on the refereeing issue. Hey, tough sh*t. What goes around, comes around.
