ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Phil Jackson may not be on the Lakers payroll any longer, but he’s still doin’ work for the purple and gold. Even if it is via social media. Deciphering Jackson’s quotes can be like trying to crack the Da Vinci Code, but this tweet aimed at free agent C Dwight Howard seems rather straightforward.
As NBC Sports pointed out, the first part of the tweet is a line from a Taj Mahal song, and probably a reference to Jackson being at his Montana home. The second part of the tweet is more obvious: Phil expects to see Dwight “get on board” with what the Lakers are trying to do. Namely, re-signing Dwight Howard.
Now let’s see if Phil has the power to sway minds via the internet.
