I believe the only reason he used that word is because he sees young African-Americans trying to make a difference.“We’re not going to let Phil Jackson’s comments stop us from doing what we need to do. It just gives us extra motivation. But it’s still sad.”James said he now has a lack of respect for Jackson, who has won 11 NBA championships.“I had nothing but respect for him as a coach for what he was able to do. Obviously he was at the helm of (the team featuring) my favorite player of all-time Michael Jordan, and also being there growing up and watching him with the Lakers, but I got nothing for him,” James said of Jackson.Knicks star player Carmelo Anthony said he understands why James would be upset at Jackson’s use of the word “posse”.“I would never want to hear that word about me and my — I don’t want to say crew — but people that I consider family or people that I come up (with), been through thick and thin with,” Anthony said Tuesday.“I’d want to be called a tight-knit group or family.

You are with this team.’ You can’t hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your posse want to spend an extra night in Cleveland.”James said Tuesday he was upset over Jackson’s comments, especially the use of the word “posse” to characterize his business associates which he took as a racial jab.“We see the success that we have, but then there is always someone that lets you know still how far we still have to go as African-Americans,” James said.“If you go and read the definition of what the word ‘posse’ is, it’s not what I’ve built over my career,” James said.ADVERTISEMENT Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan PLAY LIST 01:31Taiwan minister boards cruise ship turned away by Japan01:33WHO: ‘Global stocks of masks and respirators are now insufficient’01:01WHO: now 31,211 virus cases in China 102:02Vitamin C prevents but doesn’t cure diseases like coronavirus—medic03:07’HINDI PANG-SPORTS LANG!’03:03SILIP SA INTEL FUND As fate of VFA hangs, PH and US forces take to the skies for exercise Chinese-manned vessel unsettles Bohol town Shanghai officials reveal novel coronavirus transmission modeslast_img read more
