Live from the Game: Lakers vs. Knicks

November 24, 2009 |  7:34 pm
Learned two interesting tidbits regarding former Knicks player Phil Jackson:

1) During our 710 ESPN Lakers PodKast interview recorded today with Spike Lee (PLUG!!!), I asked the director what he remembers most about PJ during his NYC career.  I wasn't surprised when he mentioned the shoulders.  I didn't expect, however, memories of Jackson riding a ten speed to the arena.  I can't vouch for the accuracy of Lee's memories formed as a kid, but it does sound like a "Phil" thing to do.

2) Phil was asked before the game about his days as a Knick, and if he liked the city.  Yes, in part because the warmer months offered some nice bird watching opportunities.  I can honestly say I didn't see that coming.

The jabber box is below.
