Halftime Is Not For Eating In Phil Jackson's World

Phil Jackson’s motivational techniques may be out there, but sometimes they are just downright funny. Just ask backup point guard and Playboy blogger Jordan Farmar.

“Well it was my rookie year when I wasn’t playing much. I ate a hamburger at halftime because I was starving. I wasn’t playing, I wasn’t getting any minutes. So I didn’t think..it had been like ten or twelve games where I didn’t see the court. And he saw me eat the hamburger, he fined me, he got mad at me. It was a close game up in Seattle and he put me in and said I hope you blow it.”

If it was one of those wretched burgers they serve at the concession stands, wouldn’t the best punishment have been to make him eat another?
