I read the book Sacred Hoops by Phil Jackson This book is about how Phil Jackson s story and how he combined both religion and basketball I really enjoyed this book It had a lot of good ualities and I learned many lessons One uality of the book that I liked was how well it combined religion and basketball He did not just talk about basketball he talked about religion He combined the two together and made them like they were one topic Another uality of the book that I liked was how Phil Jackson didn t shy away from saying the bad I think that anyone can tell the story of all the good things that happen but it s hard to tell about all the hardships and tragedies For example he tells us about his down times without Jordan when he left to play baseball but he also spoke about all of the championships they won together The last ualities that I enjoyed in this book was how inspirational it was It was almost like you were being spoken to by a motivational speaker He included different uotes and stories about himself and his players that got themselves to where they are today He was talking about the ups and downs of the game Other reviewers also had opinions on the book One reviewer said Phil was not your typical coach I agree with this Phil really cared about his team and made sure that they worked together and that they all had a role on the team and knew what it was Phil s philosophy was also different He focused on making his team be as wholesome as possible and for them to not only be good players but good people Another reviewer said He uses Zen ideas and practices to enhance his own abilities as a coach and those of his own players I also noticed and agreed with this too He would make the players do Zen meditation or activities like that The players at first thought it was goofy but some later learned to appreciate it I recommend this book to people who like both religion processes and basketball Even if you do or don t like basketball you will like this book because of how inspirational it is It also does a good job of not making it just a basketball book but about life experiences and about Phil Jackson s story

Sacred Hoops is an engrossing account of Phil Jackson s career as a basketball player and a coach with special focus the evolution of his thinking that led to unparallelled success with the Chicago Bulls and later with the Los Angeles Lakers I despised the Bulls when I was younger I couldn t forgive them for displacing the Lakers as the dominant team in the NBA But then Kareem had retired and the other Laker stars were aging so decline was inevitable Meanwhile the Bulls were a truly awesome team through the 1990 s partly because of Michael Jordan s tremendous gifts as an athlete and competitor but also because of Jackson s wisdom as a coach in tutoring Jordan Scottie Pippen and the rest of the Bulls to think as a team rather than a collection of individualsJackson would be easy to parody with all his trendy Zen and native American mysticism if only he hadn t been the most successful coach in NBA history Some might argue that anyone could win with Jordan Sha or Kobe on their teams Indeed this criticism is mentioned in the forward by Senator Bill Bradley Anybody can coach a team led by Michael Jordan to the World Championship But each of those players went through long stretches in their careers without winning NBA championships They were performing admirably as individuals but their teams were not functioning harmoniously together a wholesSo how was Jackson so successful Having great players was certainly part of it but so was a philosophical outlook Jackson tells us that his dream was not just to win championships but to do it in a way that wove together my two greatest passions basketball and spiritual exploration This is not the usual talk from a coach One thinks of the contrast with Raider owner and former coach Al Davis whose motto is Just Win Baby Jackson culls his philosophical maxims from Eastern thought especially Zen Buddhism and also from his own Pentacostal Christian upbringing Above all he emphasizes what Buddhists call mindfulness an idea he summarizes thusly In basketball as in life true joy comes from being present in every moment not just when things are going your way This is an important insight and seems to have been an important part of his teams success The ability to free one s mind from clutter to cease worrying about what happened before or what might happen in the future and instead to focus attentively on what one is doing now is crucial to success Any fan can see this intense focus on the faces of Jordan or Kobe as they plat And not just in the playoffs but in every gameJackson doesn t mention the great American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson but the two have similar ideas When Emerson wrote In the woods we return to reason and faith There I feel that nothing can befall me in life no disgrace no calamity leaving me my eyes which nature cannot repair Standing on the bare ground my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space all mean egotism vanishes I become a transparent eyeball I am nothing I see all the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me I am part and parcel of God he is describing an experience very similar to the mindfulness Jackson describes And when Emerson the Preacher implores us to Pray without ceasing he sounds like Jackson the Preacher s son describing all of life as a spiritual uestJackson is not an academic philosopher and that shows in his writing For academic philosophers now mainly devote themselves in the US to idle debate about syntax or in Europe toward metaphysical obfuscation What s clear is that most of them have less to say about the meaning of life than Al Davis who at least has a clear idea of how life should be lived So Jackson has to offer than most academics He reminds us that real philosophy is not idle speculation clever sophistry or pale ratiocination it is essential to living a full and successful life Philosophy is a necessity not a luxury And even those who despise philosophy are really prisoners of some philosopher s ideas without realizing it perhaps the religious Thomas Auinas or the atheist HobbesSo anyone who enjoys basketball and who marveled at the success of Jackson s Bulls in the 1990 s and Lakers in recent years would do well to read this book It is full of insights about basketball and about life
