the sports world is in uproar with knicks team president phil jackson in an interview with espn the magazine he gave his how lebron james received special treatment while in miami. no surprise there. phil gave in depth description about time lebron stayed the life in clef land and the ref of the team went on to the neck city. jackson said the following "you can't hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your passe want to spend an extra night in cleveland". of course, lebron and company are upset with the word passe. lack i understand how there are code words that certain people use but that doesn't mean phil jackson is a full blown race seive. if you turned on sports talk today that was a picture painted about jackson. phil needs to choose his words better. no way should he even tip tow around words like that let alone use them. in my opinion, jackson was defined a situation told by him bee his friend pat riley.
still doesn't make it right. ly doesn't mean we need to shut everything down and call for phil jackson's job. he made a mistake and he needs to come out and apologize to lebron because the use of the word passe and let's move on. also, i can't wait for lebron to drop 50 the neck time they play the knicks. >> dwayne the rock johnson having bitty good year. a few months after tops forbes list of the highest paid actors he is the second yesterday man alive. people magazine says. the title went to david beckham and chris hemsworth back in 2014. i thought we were mentioning chris just so i could look at him but we're not. >> look at the rock. >> yeah, okay a list musical acts. britt oh mayor had lit the road this march on a massive -- bruno mars will have a world tour in support of his upcoming album.
