Phil Jackson knows a bit about working with the so-called “uncoachable” and the legendary basketball coach weighed in on Kendrick Lamar’s verse that has captivated hip-hop and beyond.
Jackson has lead headstrong players like Michael Jordan of the then-Chicago Bulls and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers and had the championship rings to prove it.
Kendrick boasted: “If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me. I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable.”
Well, Phil Jackson was listening and commented.
On Twitter, he said,”It’s okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let’s just call it mentoring.”
From a Hip-Hop vantage point, Kendrick has referred to Dr. Dre, The Game and Kurupt as mentors in his career.
