Sorry for 1 more spam of my stories. But I had too much fun writing this story not to share. In 1987, Phil Jackson left Albany to become an assistant with the Bulls. But before that, he coached Lox Around the Clock in a weekend tournament in New Jersey, featuring middle-aged has-beens and never-weres. And he played in it. He was awful as a player but good as a coach. The game also featured a NYC playground legend named Jack Ryan. Video survives, so I wrote about it and talked with Jack about playing for a legend....before he was a legend.
