It appears as though Phil Jackson and his 10 glamorous championship rings are considering coaching from the luxury of his custom made, Indian leather La-Z-Boy chair in the plush confines of his LA palace. And really, why the hell not? Mike Lupica has been covering sports for 10 years from the comfort of his Greenwich, Connecticut mansion, so if he can do it, the Zen Master can. He can even coach with his ass cheeks from inside his Teepee-shaped bath tub if he feels inclined to do so.
But with that will come copycats, as some NBA coaches have already begun to piggyback the idea:
Don Nelson to coach from inside giant martini glass.
Stan Van Gundy to coach from inside King Kong's armpit.
Mike D'Antoni to coach from inside ravioli-filled jacuzzi.
Gregg Popovich to coach from undisclosed beard growing location.
Lawrence Frank to coach from 3rd grader's desk.
Flip Saunders to coach from Kramer's cigar lounge.
Vinny Del Negro to coach from 80s sitcom.
Doc Rivers to coach from Super Dave Osbourne stunt site.
