Mr. Jackson, are you for real?

Phil Jackson is not one who holds back when making statements to the media about his teams and players. But he decided to take things a bit too far with his comments following the Lakers loss to the San Antonio Spurs last night. The Lakers suffered a 107-92 loss in San Antonio despite poor play from team leader Tim Duncan (5 points). Jackson compared the way his team lost to the award-winning movie, "Brokeback Mountain", saying that there was a lot of "penetration and kickout". Members of the media had a chuckle after his comment, but a day later there's not as many people laughing.

David Stern was most likely not amused and may be handing out a fine for the post game comments. Jackson will probably make a public apology for his comments, as he is a Hall of Fame coach. Hopefully Phil understands that his remarks went just a bit too far and he recoils on the statement.

The Lakers will play the red-hot Houston Rockets Wednesday night at 9PM on ESPN.

In other news, the Stephon Marbury MIA story continues. The Knicks guard has been fined a whopping 195 grand for missing the Suns game and rumor is he won't be a part of the next game versus the Clippers. Please donate that money to the deserving NBA fans, or a charity for this holiday season.
