As we mentioned recently, Phil Jackson has an opinion on pretty much everything right now. He's turned into the master of manipulating the media by spouting off about all kinds of things during the promotional tour that he's on for his new book, Eleven Rings. And to his credit, it has worked. We feel like we do a post on Jax every other day—and he's not actually doing anything right now other than touring the country and giving his opinion on things! It's pretty brilliant.
Anyway, with that in mind, the 13-time NBA champion just gave his opinion on who will win the 2013 NBA Finals this month. And surprisingly, he picked the Spurs to beat the Heat.
"I think the Spurs are gonna beat the Heat," he said at a book signing.
Surprised? You shouldn't be. Everyone, including Las Vegas, thinks the Heat are going to win the series, even those who hate Miami. But Jackson knows that, if he picked the Heat, no one would care. So he picked the Spurs and, as a result, we're all interested in what he has to say now. That's why he's a winner.
Now, who wants to ask Jackson a really tough question. Like, say, his opinion on the outfit that Justin Bieber wore during Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. We've already got a "Phil Jackson Didn't Like Justin Bieber's Heat Hat" post ready to go! Go ahead, we'll wait…
