07:56 AM ET 03.28 | If Phil Jackson was looking to make a splash on Twitter, mission accomplished. Early Wednesday afternoon, Jackson's fiancee and Los Angeles Lakers executive vice president Jeanie Buss tweeted that Phil had joined Twitter, and his account (@philjackson11) was verified shortly thereafter. Before he sent out his first tweet, Jackson had amassed over 40,000 followers, an impressive feat for anyone. Jackson's avatar is a photo of his 11 NBA championship rings. ... And as for that first tweet, it did not disappoint. "@PhilJackson11: 11 champ;ipnsikp[ ringhs" ... This is spectacular, and that's no small feat for a man who uttered the words "First of all, you don't smoke peyote."

Phil is done. He should stay gone instead of coming back to show us how great he was.
