I am concerned about the extra-heightened rhetoric turned against Trump. Yet, I also think he has done a great deal to further perpetuate it. If the President always goes an inch too far (or hell 100 miles too far) what does that make of the population at large? Up until now, no President in my lifetime dared to go this far in his blistering rhetoric against citizens of his own nation. The closest I can remember to something or someone like Trump is Sarah Palin when she was McCain’s running-mate back in 2008. And at the time, McCain asked his supporters to use restraint.

I’m not going to go into the nitty gritty details about why one is more worthy of a basketball player than the other, but I will say that I was 10 years old and in 4th grade, and we all wanted to “Be Like Mike” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0AGiq9j_Ak .

Phil Jackson, the man who has 11 Championships as a Coach, is now closely affiliated with Carmelo Anthony, a man who has 3 playoff series wins in his whole 14 year career in the NBA. Continue reading
I have always been intrigued by the mystique of Phil Jackson. How he seemed to always get the best out of his players and get under the skin of his opposing Coaches; Like when former Knicks Head Coach Jeff Van Gundy, poked fun at Phil Jackson calling him “The Big Chief Triangle”. I remember Michael Jordan in interviews sharing about Jackson’s love of Zen Buddhism. Continue reading
