Phil Jackson worries OKC = Next Clippers

Phil Jackson praises OKC, but worries it could become the Clippers

Lakers coach Phil Jackson doesn't often take shots at the Clippers. Frankly, he's got plenty of good targets on his own team to worry about using the media to motivate the Clippers... But since the Lakers had an off day in Oklahoma City before Tuesday's game against the Thunder, and there's not much else to talk about during an off day in Oklahoma City, he had a little fun at the expense of the Clippers.

Our Lakers beat reporter, Elliott Teaford, said Jackson was asked if Oklahoma City reminded him of any team he coached early in his career. He answered: ``I'm not going to say the Bulls. I'm not gonna compare them to that. But what I don't want to see is them remind me of the Clippers, who had a lot of draft picks over the years. Then you get all these young kids together and they can't function because of the pecking order that has to be established.''

Jackson then went on to praise the Thunder for how well it seems to be playing together.
