And We're Off, Part 2!

On Gorilla Tactics

In addition to Yuling, Patrick Steen has just joined the team as a Core Programmer. He hails from sunny Texas, where he will be wearing cowboy boots and coding for the project.

The cowboy boots part is, obviously, the more important of the two.

Having recently left his job to pursue a career in the video games industry, in true Cowboy fashion, Patrick decided to join the Kung Fu Kingdom project and stake his claim to what he considers to be "The greatest idea to ever come around since kettle corn!"

He didn't actually say that. I made that up.

Welcome to the team Patrick.

Phil and Bill - Comparing the greatest NBA and NFL coaches of my life to date.

On The 4 Hour Struggle

Phil Jackson: 6'8", athletic, and charismatic. A former player that had the respect of everyone. 11 rings as a head coach and 2 as a player. A practitioner of Zen Buddhism.

Bill Belichick -- Too small to play football, son of a coach and scout. Uncharismatic, but has been studying film since he was 9 years old. He gained respect by his knowledge of the game. 4 rings as a head coach and 2 as a defensive coordinator.

Jackson was a master of dealing with egos. In the NBA, guys like Kobe, Jordan, Shaq, don't come around very often. So as a head coach, it is much more difficult to have only "your type of guys" if you want to win an NBA championship when compared to the NFL.

When Chicago was going on their 2nd run, they recognized a need for interior defense. After clearing it with Scottie and Michael, they traded for Dennis Rodman and Phil assimilated the enigmatic player into a key piece in the 1996-98 3peat.
