    Jackson's postgame comments get NBA's attention

    Jackson's postgame comments get NBA's attention

    Updated: November 14, 2007, 5:15 PM ET

    NEW YORK -- The NBA has spoken with the Los Angeles Lakers about a sexual reference coach Phil Jackson made in a comment following Tuesday night's game in San Antonio.

    The Spurs made 13 3-pointers in their 107-92 victory, and 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 2005 film, which won three Oscars, depicts two cowboys who conceal their homosexual affair.

    "The remarks are in poor taste, and the Lakers have assured us such remarks will not occur in the future," league spokesman Brian McIntyre said.

    The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation also issued a statement condemning the remarks.

    "Phil Jackson's been coaching long enough that he should be able to talk about to talk about the Lakers' performance without resorting to cheap gay jokes," the statement read.
    You would think PJ would know , he can't say funny shiat like that! that would be a reach-around foul Wonder if he writes his own stuff?
    The sad part is witch hunt that will follow. These alliances are like ticks, laying in wait for an opportunity such as this to arise.
