Boos From The Crowd Worth 10 Lessons

Phil Jackson is known for wanting his teams to work through tough stretches in games instead of bailing them out by calling a quick timeout to slow the opposing momentum. After today’s practice Phil elaborated on why.

“That’s probably part of what I’ve been doing ever since I’ve been coaching. I think sometimes the boos from the crowd are worth ten lessons that I have to give them or ten things I might have to say,” Jackson said. “You hear that crowd and they know how badly they’re playing and that somethings wrong. Then the lessons come a lot easier from there.”
