In case you forgot how laughably successful Phil Jackson has been in his career, he responded to a Twitter follower's request for a photo of his two oft-forgotten Knicks rings, which he won as a player in 1970 and 1973, by posting his entire set of championship finger dress. (The Knicks ones are up front.)

It was inconveniently timed for anyone who was hoping to feel good about their own accomplishments this week lifetime.
