Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson, owner of 11 championship rings and widely considered one of the best coaches of all time, took the opportunity Wednesday night to rub it in. In his first posting since signing up for a Twitter account, the former Lakers and Bulls coach posted this:
11 champ;ipnsikp[ ringhs— Phil Jackson (@PhilJackson11) March 27, 2013
Jackson's avatar photo is of his 11 championship rings. His Twitter page background, also the rings. It's as if Phil is trying to tell us something.
In a video almost a day after the tweet, Jackson explained the typo. Jackson, you see, had trouble typing due to the weight of all his rings. This is a good time to point out that Red Auerbach won 16 rings as a coach and general manager.
