Quote Of the Day

After the San Antonio Spurs lit up the Los Angeles Lakers for 13 3-pointers en route to their 107-92 victory Tuesday night, Coach Phil Jackson was asked if too much penetration was leading to open outside shooters. “We call this a ‘Brokeback Mountain’ game, because there’s so much penetration and kickouts,” Jackson said. “It was one of those games.”

The NBA and Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) were quick to speak against Jackson’s comments.

NBA spokesman Brian McIntyre said: “The remarks are in poor taste, and the Lakers have assured us such remarks will not occur in the future.”

GLAAD president Neil G. Giuliano issued a statement saying: “Phil Jackson’s been coaching long enough that he should be able to talk about the Lakers’ performance without resorting to cheap gay jokes.”

On Wednesday, Jackson’s apology: “If I’ve offended any horses, Texans, cowboys or gays, I apologize.”

  1. This is such an overblown story, it isn’t even funny. I can understand how some people can take offense to what he said, but it wasn’t THAT bad. I simply took it as a reference to a movie.

    And considering how badly Jackson’s squad played, a stiff reaming from behind is an apt description of what the Spurs did to the Lakers. Ok, maybe the Lakers didn’t play that bad.

  2. Hence, the movement to rid of these ungodly groups – GLAAD, MADD, ACLU, NAACP, basically, any rights group.

    The story is so overblown, it’s a joke (no pun intended), but Phil’s comments were lol funny.
