Phil Jackson is a former player, legendary coach and accomplished author. He can also foretell the future.
Only, his powers are limited to Miami Heat fans and only really work in conjunction with commercials filmed back in 2005.
In the commercial, we find two Heat fans who have given up on their team and decide to head home to beat traffic. Still not spooked?
Yahoo! Sports' Dan Devine would like to remind you about the debacle that took place during Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals when—not two—but rather droves of Heat fans left the game early when they thought their season had ended.
Take a look at Rembert Browne's Vine video to relive the absurdity that is the Miami faithful leaving an all-important game only to realize moments later they would miss out on one hell of a comeback.
As we now know—and apparently the Zen Master knew in 2005—the Heat would take Game 6, 103-100, and they would take the title with a 95-88 win in Game 7.
Now, all we are left with is an immense number of questions and the assumption that Jackson's powers extend far beyond getting Dennis Rodman to concentrate on basketball or Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal to coexist long enough for a three-peat.
Why is he wearing some sort of Jedi robe? Is this Jackson from the future? Is he a Time Lord? Did the Internet just prove The Matrix is real? Suddenly, I don't feel so good.
If ever there was a reason to listen to Jackson, even as he wears a wardrobe befitting a Jedi master, it would be that he can accurately tell the future.
I think Elaine Benes has the only apt reaction to this.
