Leave it to Phil Jackson to make lemonade out of lemons. (Wow, never thought I could work that cliche into the same sentence as Phil Jackson, who I’ve begun to notice is something of a wordsmith himself)
Anyway, instead of whining about having to coach the All-Star game this year, Phil invited his children and grandchildren to Phoenix and is turning the weekend into something of a family reunion. Only Jackson, like most good writers, averse to any cliche, called it something else.
“Well, I have four of my five children coming to the game and three of my grandchildren coming to the game, so I’m using as a point of reference for my family,” he said.
