    Lakers’ Jerry West details chilly dealings with Phil Jackson

    "So one of the problems I had with Phil was this," West writes. "His office was right near mine and when he would arrive in the morning, he would walk right past and never even bother to wave or duck his head in to say hello."He would later say that he felt the need to stake out his territory, that on top of that he was 'a wack job,' but I am sure it was more than that."West compares Jackson's attitude to Pat Riley's reach for more power after winning titles as the Laker coach, but West suggests that Jackson's display was a colder version to experience."Phil and I had no relationship," West writes. "None. He didn't want me around and had absolutely no respect for me—of that, I have no doubt."http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/Phil-Jackson-was-no-fan-of-Jerry-West-says-Jerr?urn=nba-wp8308

    Did he consider Jackson a whack job because of his Zen beliefs?
