Pistons vs Kobe, Mike Tyson and Phil Jackson

Free Kobe

Phil Jackson has always been a bit more enlightened than your average coach, and one of his traditions is to give his players books on long road trips. Well, he didn't this year, and after a recent loss he explained why:

"I told them, 'You guys wouldn't read the ... things anyway,' when I went off on a little outburst on them the other day. 'All you guys can do is play video games and watch porn movies."

What's that have to do with Mike Tyson? Um, I'm not sure. What's Kobe Bryant have to do with female comic book villains? How about you make the connection in the comments. For a more intelligent preview (though, from an LA perspective), check out Forum Blue and Gold.
