Hey, Wanna Watch TMZ Pester Phil Jackson At The Grocery Store?
At some point, we as a society have to look at the first amendment and ask ourselves if that whole "freedom of the press" thing is really worth the painful moments marauding bands of paparazzi manage to create on a daily basis.
"Hey Pheel, wuudya git in yer trulley?" the Australian photog said to the 69-year-old man shopping for his groceries.
"Wud thee Leekers be doeen bettah if you were thair coach?"
"They have a good coach," Phil responded through a smile.
"They're growing up together."
Here's what that interaction yielded as a headline: "Phil Jackson -- Throws Jab at Lakers Players ... From Knicks Glass House." Is the assumption there that Phil Jackson threw a "jab" at the Lakers by politely inferring that they're not very good? They've won 25% of their games. Why should it matter that he's been in charge of the Knicks for eight months? Is there anything he could've possibly done to avoid having this run-in become news?
Phil, next time TMZ comes up to you with a video camera and starts asking questions, just stuff the guy in the backseat of your car and don't let him escape.
