One hip leads to another
Phil Jackson will have his left hip replaced (with, we can only assume, an artificial one) this morning. Unlike with last season's procedure on the right hip, he should be good to go in plenty of time for training camp. Perhaps it's worth checking in on Johnny Buss' MySpace page to see how he feels about it. After all, this Dr. Jerry progeny, who has no input into hoops decisions, has already used it to express his opinion on the Kobe drama. Are there any cousins or former classmates who'd like to weigh in, too? Long lost uncles or orphaned children?
