The other day I wrote a funny story, which failed to get a laugh out of Phil Jackson's agent, Todd Musburger.
The way I heard it, UCLA Athletic Director Dan Guerrero called Musburger's office, and talked to his son, Brian, about Jackson helping UCLA find a replacement for Ben Howland.
Musburger put out a news release after I wrote about it and said I was wrong.
I think everyone understands I am never wrong.
I asked Guerrero on Tuesday if he had talked to Jackson's agent.
"A third party who is close to our program heard Phil was interested in helping us out on the search and would I call," Guerrero said. "So I did. He indicated he might be willing to help as a consultant if we were willing to hire him."
Musburger failed to mention in his release his son had talked to Guerrero about Jackson. It sounds deceptive now, but then he's an agent. And an attorney as well.
