— Dan asked Jackson who he would want to start a team with. Jackson said that power players are really the key to the NBA.

Most people are expecting a Lakers, Cavaliers match up in this year’s NBA Finals. Especially since it’s looking like KG could miss the playoffs. Well today on the Dan Patrick Show, Phil Jackson did his part to make the match up even more interesting if the two were to meet in the Finals.
So Lebron is an exception, but he’s not? Talk about wordsmithery. Seeing as though Lebron fuels off this kind of stuff, the Zen Master should refrain from making statements like this. Nevertheless, I’ll be on the look out for the “We Are Witnesses That You Should Start A Team With Lebron” t-shirts”.
