Phil Jackson Is Skipping The Lakers Road Trip To Portland Due To His Bum Leg…Or Is That Just What They Want You To Believe?

phil_jacksonPhil Jackson will not be joining the Lakers for their game tonight against the Trailblazers in Portland due to what the team claims is “pain and swelling in his lower right leg.” Yeah, right.

The Lakers organization must assume we sports fans just got kicked off the turnip truck for eating too many turnips, as the old saying goes. Anyone with any common sense knows what’s really going on here:

Phil Jackson pissed off the wrong people in Portland and is scared to go back. Believe me, the last thing you want is a bunch of granolas on your case.  They’ll stay on you until something else distracts them – like a Smurfs cartoon, for instance. Or an extended Mickey Hart drum solo.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Or don’t. Really, it’s up to you.

Anyway, controversies and rampant speculation aside, assistant coach Kurt Rambis will step in for Jackson tonight. You guys remember Kurt Rambis, don’t you?

Sweet merciful crap that photo is disturbing. The horror…the horror.
