Laker's Coach Phil Jackson and a Talking Dog

Phil Jackson was watching a talking dog video.

You would think if the NBA's all-time playoff genius was looking at a video, it would be to find a better way to stop Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki. Or Jose Barea, whoever that is.

But Phil was watching some talking dog, and no, I'm not talking about any of the Dodgers who were playing earlier Wednesday.

He says he was looking for "comic relief," which raises the question, Why wasn't he watching the Dodgers, or talking to Ron Artest?

Phil says he wanted his team "to be a little more light-hearted," so he found the dog on the Internet. It would have made more sense, of course, had he said he found the dog in some monastery in Tibet.
