After I read that I got the sense that he was only talking about ONE Laker player....
Any guesses as to whom?
Maybe all our talking about getting him, may eventually become at least a possibility.
(Pssssssst, I'm talking about Shaq)
I have a dream.........his name's Hakeem.

Jackson said his biggest challenge right now is to get his players sustaining their attention spans: "Focusing, concentration, being able to hold their attention for a long period of time. . . . Playing through the full game, not having mental fatigue, going to the free-throw line, being able to concentrate on the activity at hand, putting all other things except the one deed or activity that they have to do. . . .
"Those are the keys that this team has to be able to do. They're all autistic in some form or fashion. I don't mean to say that as a snide remark towards a certain population in our society, but they have a limitation of their attention span, a lot of it is probably due to too much rap music going in their ears or coming out of their being.
"So, they need to get a focal point that lasts longer than a TV commercial or one short, 15-second span."
It is clearly evident that Guru Phil is already making excuses for the Fakers. What a joke!
He bandwagon hop like nutty...right off of this BBS!!!!
