When Jackson speaks apparently the NBA listens. They just fined him 35 grand so they can buy liquor for a cocktail party and all he did was tell the truth.

Phil is the man. He understands if the team gets it done, they get it done. If they don't, they don't. When he gripes about something, not only is it typicaly a valid gripe, it is to send a message. Durant got nothing done tonight. It is because Phil didn't freak out that they were playing the scoring champion. Who cares? Phil didn't, he has been there and done that. He got into Durant's head. It may not have been obvious, but I could tell. I could go on all night, but the point is, it is either going to happen, or it isn't. At the end of they day, he is the greatest coach ever, not really arguable at all, and that win lose or draw, who cares. The sun will still rise in the morning, and set in the evening, and if it doesn't for some reason, then the game, or daily life means nothing, because then we actually have something to worry about.
