So, when he sent out a tweet to Los Angeles Lakers fans and Dwight Howard, there were no mistakes. 

The Zen Master had notoriously reached out to Dwight toward the end of last season and even said that he was underused by coach Mike D'Antoni. It's also been reported that Dwight said had Phil been the coach, he absolutely would have stayed on the Lakers' sqaud. 

Well, Phil tweeted after D12 made his decision:

Now, this could seem like a simple slip, but that's a pretty big slip. 

Phil is also a very tongue-in-cheek guy, like the time he said Sacramento Kings fans are from a "cow town," which obviously didn't go over well. 

It's highly likely this was a jab also because there was no correction from him.

Just when you think you can't love Phil Jackson anymore...
