Well, this doesn't figure to do a lot for inter-hallway relationships.
In his pregame session before Friday's game with the Clippers, Phil Jackson was asked whether he believed in curses, and turned it into a nice little shot at Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling.
Let's go to the tape:
Reporter: Do you believe in curses, or jinxes or hexes?
Jackson: No, I don't. I do think -- I'm of that generation that believes in karma. I do think there is karma in effect, ultimately, but I can't claim anybody else's karma. That's their own making. If you do a good mitzvah, maybe you can then eliminate some of those things? You think Sterling's done enough mitzvahs to eliminate some of those things?
Reporter: He's been an award-winning humanitarian, many times over.
Jackson: Yeah, but how about all those other incidents we have on file?
Reporter: This I don't know.
Jackson: OK, me neither.
