Phil Jackson Condones Fun With Playmates

Andrew Bynum
There are plenty of times when Phil Jackson comes across like an ass, but every now and then he doesn’t seem half bad. For example, he doesn’t seem to have any problem with Andrew Bynum cavorting with Playboy Playmates as his knee rehab winds down.

“I think there’s a lot being made out of that that is unnecessary,” Jackson said Tuesday. “This is a young guy. I don’t think Andrew is 22 yet, is he? He’s a 21-year-old guy. He’s been out of basketball 5 1/2-6 weeks. He’s got to have some energy and vent and have some fun. Now I don’t know if putting a girl on your shoulders…”

Jackson was referring to one picture, which showed Bynum carrying a woman on his shoulders. He tore the medial collateral ligament in his left knee against Memphis on Jan. 31.

  • Taj

    Thats cause Phil had many riding more than just his shoulders back in his day!

  • Kermit the Washington

    Yeah, but if he got re-injured picking that chick up on his shoulders….Phil would be HEEATED.

    As long as he’s putting in his hours in the weight room what he does on his own time is his business. Plus She looks like she weighs 90lbs. It’s not like he’s got Mo’nique up there.

  • doc

  • http://yaboygetsloose ya boy

  • jay

    first off if he is in the weight room i have no problem with this and as long as he is not doing this day in and day out. just with every idiot havin a camera phone just be careful what you do in you off time..see mickey phelps..you get my point. that being said the cutie cant weight more than 110…drew can curl that! good for him. i would be throwing shorty around all night! holla !
