Phil Jackson Writing Another Memoir ‘Eleven Rings’

It’s been known for some time now that Phil Jackson was writing a book, and now we have a working title for the latest tome from the Zen Master. Per the AP: “Phil Jackson’s next title will be on the cover of his new book. Penguin Press says Tuesday that Jackson, the Hall of Famer who won 11 NBA championships as coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, is writing his memoir called ‘Eleven Rings.’ The book is tentatively scheduled to be out next year. The 66-year-old Jackson is a 1,155-game winner whose career .704 winning percentage is the best in NBA history.”

    Phil puts out some pretty good reads. You always get a unique viewpoint about the nba that no one ever hears about. In ‘The Last Season’ his discussions about Shaq’s free throw shooting are an absolute gut buster.


    His next book will be titled: “Finished Where I Started: My Journey To 13 Rings” Foreword written by Walt “Clyde” Frazier. ILLUMINATI!

    It would be awesome if in the sequel he talks about his 11 championship rings.

    The thing that sicks to me when I think about Phil Jackson is how he made his players read, rumor has it that he assigned different books to different players depending on what he thought they could get from it, I wish he would release a list of the books he made certain players read and when, like what book did he give MJ when he got back from retirement, did he give Shaq and Kobe the same book during their feud. Always looking for inspiration that leads to a good read.

    kobe said last year that he never reads them and never engaged phil on his zen stuff.

    If Jordan has a pair of kicks called 6 Rings, P-Jax should have a bong called 11 Rings. Only thing is that it’s too good to ever be considered a Guest Bong.

    T-Money, they were forced to engage somewhat. Phil would turn off the lights in the locker room and they would have silence for several mins. Amoung a few other ‘zenny’ things. Kobe said he liked some of that stuff, but he never took it seriously as a life philosophy. Which can you blame him? Kobe System = Zen System

  • shutup

    Thing is whether Kobe read it or not wouldnt matter I still wanna see what Phil asked him to read. and I’m pretty sure Phil mind f#cked Kobe on more than one occasion (ala get him to the greek)in participating on the Zen stuff

    Kobe said he was the Best Laker not the smartest Laker.
    Best Laker pair were Baylor and West. If no Celtics Lakers would have had 6 more rings.
