The Lakers’ head coach is joking here, I think. But he pays Ron Ron a nice compliment, while taking a small swipe at Bryant’s solo offensive forays. From the OC Register (via NBA.com): “Apparently, he’s not as misguided as he looks, and Phil Jackson knows exactly what the Lakers forward is doing … He even said Artest would figure out the offense sooner or later. ‘He’s probably a little better at it (triangle offense) than Kobe is, because Kobe ignores the offense,’ Jackson said Tuesday after the Lakers’ victory against Minnesota.”
