07:04 AM ET 08.14 | From the Twitter account of Phil Jackson comes a bit of advice -- but, this time, not in basketball. Instead, it entailed giving rapper Kendrick Lamar some advice shortly after releasing a freestyle titled "Control" that contained these lyrics: "If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin' me/I'm uncoachable, I'm unsociable." ... [@PhilJackson11] @kendricklamar it's okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let's just call it mentoring. ... Jackson's honesty isn't just hilarious for the pure randomness. His comments also bode similar to feedback he's given Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant at early stages in their career. Meanwhile, Lamar is considered a rising hip-hop artist, and he treats his latest song as a chance to shower praises on himself.

And your boy Shumpert backed the Zen master up and threw down a rap directed at the guy as well.

That's funny. Kendrick Lamar KILLED it on that verse. He destroyed Big Sean on his own song! And poor Jay Electronica.
