Hillary Clinton mouthpiece and NBA superstar LeBron James is one more professional athlete who is crying racism. The cornerstone of the world champion Cleveland Cavaliers has taken great umbrage over a comment made by legendary coach Phil Jackson, the man who has racked up more championship rings than any other head coach in league history. Jackson dared to refer to King James’ business partners as his “posse”, a cardinal sin these days. It’s another great example of hypocrisy in that blacks can refer to each other as “niggers” and often do exactly that but if it is a white person who utters the dreaded “N word” even in a non-racial context they are pounced upon by the political correctness Nazis who then kick the living shit out of the offending party until they beg for mercy.
LeBron James says he has lost all respect for Phil Jackson after the New York Knicks president characterized James’ business associates as a “posse” in a recent interview with ESPN.
“Zero,” James said Tuesday, when asked if he had any previous ties to Jackson. “No relationship at all. 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.”
Jackson, in an interview with ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan published this week, made the statement while revisiting James’ departure from the Miami Heat to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 2014 and what it meant for the tenure of Heat president Pat Riley.
“It had to hurt when they lost LeBron,” Jackson said. “That was definitely a slap in the face. But there were a lot of little things that came out of that. When LeBron was playing with the Heat, they went to Cleveland, and he wanted to spend the night. They don’t do overnights. Teams just don’t. So now [coach Erik] Spoelstra has to text Riley and say, ‘What do I do in this situation?’ And Pat, who has iron-fist rules, answers, ‘You are on the plane. 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 went ape as he and others immediately decried Jackson’s comments as dog whistle language but who is really acting like the racist here? First the 800 pound gorilla of the NBA made an appearance with Hillary Clinton who ran the nastiest, most racially divisive presidential campaign in recent memory which was so toxic that many blacks and Latinos are simply not accepting the election results and are taking to the streets with increasing frequency to violently wage a war against the white privilege that they perceive is responsible for Donald Trump’s win.
King James also has appeared before games in a shirt with the caption “I Can’t Breathe” which is a dog whistle expression of black hatred towards the police, he has refused to visit the White House once Trump officially becomes POTUS and his example has incited a number of NBA chuckleheads looking to make a statement by refusing to stay in hotels owned by Trump during road trips. So what we appear to have is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black but trying to explain the hypocrisy to multimillionaire pro-athlete Prima Donnas is akin to casting pearls before swine.
If the reigning MVP of the NBA Finals really wants to do something constructive to patch up race relations in the aftermath of the Democrats’ scorched earth campaign to win the White House he could start with an apology to Coach Jackson and then just keep his damned mouth shut and play ball, leave the social justice horseshit to the angry mobs underwritten by George Soros and get back to doing what he’s paid for.
