Phil Jackson Makes Debut on Twitter, Sends Embarrassing First Tweet

Legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson has caused one heck of a stir on Twitter.

It’s not unusual for sports figures to gain media attention for their social media habits, but that kind of widespread coverage rarely comes after just a single tweet.

Since the Zen Master’s arrival to the online scene was announced by his fiancee, Jeanie Buss, on Tuesday, the coach has been characteristically enigmatic, sending just one — rather unintelligible — tweet. He has yet to tweet again, but his account has already amassed more than 70,000 followers.

Jackson’s spelling may leave much to be desired, but it must be tough to type with 11 rings on your fingers.
