Phil Jackson encourages Flea's criticism of ESPN's Kobe Bryant piece
There's a lot to unpack in this Phil Jackson tweet:
- Flea is the bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
- ESPN has a story about Kobe Bryant this week with the subheadline: "He is arguably the greatest player in the history of the Lakers' franchise. He is also destroying it from within."
- Flea was raised in Southern California, is a Lakers fan, and used to keep a Lakers-themed blog for NBA.com.
- Flea was upset with ESPN's story and decided to vent on Twitter.
- Flea is one of the 41 people former Lakers coach and current Knicks president Phil Jackson follows on Twitter, a list that does not include anyone related to the Knicks.
- Phil Jackson sees Flea's comment and tells him, "Go get 'em, Flea."
