Forget the triangle offense. With the NBA playoffs beginning this weekend, the real triangle to watch is made up of Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant and a third party being paid $6 million a year to monitor them. He is Phil Jackson, the Laker head coach and supposed island of calm and reason, yet anyone who finds the differences between O'Neal and Bryant unsettling, should be braced for the chasm between Jackson's words and his behavior.

Phil Jackson frequently gripes about media access, which he views as excessive. When it comes to disturbing the placidity of his basketball team's holy place, Jackson is quite put off if he is not the one flinging the skipping rock. As the Lakers try to mend a fractured season in time for the playoffs, Jackson's "More Than a Game," by Charley Rosen, will follow Shaquille O'Neal's "Shaq Talks Back" to a bookstore near you.

Phil Jackson has hinted at philosophical differences with Kobe Bryant regarding the offense, and now Jackson's friend, co-author and former assistant coach, Charley Rosen, advocates the Lakers trade Bryant. In his Internet column, he maintains that Bryant has not been held accountable by a "jock-sniffing" Los Angeles media, a description arrived at, perhaps, while waving school girlishly at Jackson before a game last week.

-- The Times' Mike Bresnahan notes that the Lakers didn't talk to reporters Wednesday. That's perhaps a good sign considering Andrew Bynum previously gave the Nuggets bulletin board material by suggesting closeout games are easy. Bresnahan also reports that the NBA didn't have a problem with the Nuggets having a laptop with them during Game 5. -- The Times' Ben Bolch , however, says the Nuggets took offense that the Lakers' whiteboard after their Game 5 loss read, "Pack for 3 games.

Phil Jackson and Laker owner Jerry Buss each continue to wait for the other to make a firm commitment before moving toward a possible reunion. And as that holding pattern emerges, Kobe Bryant remains silent and in the background. In July, Bryant identified Duke's Mike Krzyzewski as his preferred coach, but the Laker guard has been left out of the loop this time around.

Confronted Friday with a potentially divisive Internet story about their relationship with each other, Laker assistant coach Tex Winter said he once had the same debates with Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant maintained, "I love [Tex]. He's my man." The Lakers generally are over the squabbling that coated the early years of Phil Jackson's tenure, with Shaquille O'Neal and Bryant and Jackson finding ways to live and play together.

Philadelphia Coach Billy Cunningham told Inside Sports he was frustrated by his inability to bring out the best in Darryl Dawkins when he was with the 76ers but said it was impossible to get mad at the big center. "He's a great guy," Cunningham said. "You never know what he's going to do next. I can remember one time in training camp when he was loafing through some drills. I got real mad, so I grabbed him on the sideline and read him the riot act. I told him that his career was at stake.

Former Dodger owner Walter O'Malley, former major league managers Dick Williams, Billy Martin and Whitey Herzog and former commissioner Bowie Kuhn are among those on the veterans' ballot for induction into baseball's Hall of Fame. Another former manager, Gene Mauch, was on the preliminary list but failed to make the cut. He was in pretty good company, though. Another who missed was one George W. Bush, former managing partner of the Texas Rangers. Wonder whatever happened to him.

Phil Jackson asked Wednesday night if he couldn't move on, beyond his recent remarks concerning Kobe Bryant, past Bryant's relationship with the triangle offense, and through Bryant's high school career. "That was last week," Jackson said coolly. "This is this week." He said it was a story that survived "much longer than it should have lived."
