There's a lot to unpack in this Phil Jackson tweet:

The NBA's oldest players, then and now​

  1. Flea is the bassist for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
  2. 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."
  3. Flea was raised in Southern California, is a Lakers fan, and used to keep a Lakers-themed blog for NBA.com.
  4. Flea was upset with ESPN's story and decided to vent on Twitter.
  5. 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.
  6. Phil Jackson sees Flea's comment and tells him, "Go get 'em, Flea."

Fin.
