Phil Jackson Defends Michael Jordan’s Push-Off Following Chris Paul’s Controversial Game-Winner

Phil Jackson hasn’t been on Twitter long, but he’s been entertaining even from the start.

Monday night, the 11-time NBA champion coach started some Twitter drama following Chris Paul‘s game-winner, which gave the Clippers a 2-0 series lead over the Grizzlies.

Jackson was upset that Paul got away with what appeared to be several push-offs on Tony Allen, giving him space to beat the buzzer with a bank shot. Some of Jackson’s Twitter followers were quick to point out that Jackson, while with the Bulls, benefited greatly from a push-off when Michael Jordan swatted Byron Russell down to the floor to drain the shot that gave Jordan, Jackson and the Bulls a sixth championship.
