Phil Jackson on Bad Excuses

March 12, 2007

Memphis Bengal of Sports Frog picked up on a curious quote from Phil Jackson following the Lakers’ thumping at the hands of the Mavericks last night:

┬áThat was an embarrassing loss for us. There’s no excuse for the way we played. I don’t care if it’s daylight savings, it’s still not a good excuse.

No, it’s not, though the final score wouldn’t have been much worse if the Lakers had all accidentally shown up an hour late for the tip off. I think I might like this one even better than the Rex Grossman New Year’s Eve excuse.
