Hey I finally got to meet somebody. This is my brush with greatness. This is Phil Jackson the coach of the L.A. Lakers basketball team. At the time he was still negotiating with the Lakers about the job but a week later he signed a deal for 7-10 million dollars to be the Lakers coach again. ABC wanted to talk to him before game 1 of the NBA finals and so they did. I was parked fairly close and had plenty of time for Jeff to run in, introduce myself and squeeze off a picture.
