LeBron James Phil Jackson

LeBron James called out NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson for using urban slang to describe his crew of hard legs.

It all started when Jackson commented on James’ Diva behavior in an interview with ESPN.

Jackson recalled a time when James asked his former team, the Miami Heat, to stay overnight in Cleveland during a road trip.

Jackson, 71, noted that James expected preferential treatment when he played for the Miami Heat.

He said James, 31, asked Heat coach Erik Spoelstra if the team could stay overnight in Cleveland so he could hang out with his mother and his homies.

Jackson said James’ inconsiderate request put Spoelstra in a bind.

“You can’t hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your posse want to spend an extra night in Cleveland,” Jackson said in the ESPN interview.

James, who isn’t used to being publicly rebuked, responded to Jackson’s criticism after team practice on Tuesday.

“I had nothing but respect for him as a coach …” James told a reporter.

Q: “Had respect?”
LeBron: “Yeah”
Q: “Until now?”
LeBron: “Yeah”

Then James accused Jackson of stereotyping his crew because they are black.

“It just sucks that now at this point having one of the biggest businesses you can have both on and off the floor, having a certified agent in Rich Paul, having a certified business partner in Maverick Carter, that’s done so many great business [deals], that the title for young African-Americans is the word ‘posse.'”

James added that he didn’t think Jackson would use the word “posse” to describe a white sports superstar and his crew.

Jackson’s friends and acquaintances were quick to defend him from accusations of racism.

“Posse is not a racist term, nor has anyone ever felt Phil Jackson is racist – other than that…” tweeted ESPN commentator Douglas Gottlieb.

NBA star Carmelo Anthony weighed in on the controversy.

“I wouldn’t never want to hear that word about me and — I don’t want to say my crew — but people I consider family and people I came up with, been through thick and thin with,” Anthony said after Tuesday’s practice. “I would want [them] to be called a tightly knit group or family.”

He added: “I don’t think you have to be a rocket scientist or educated person to know what that means to us.”

    Thats because you arent understanding of subliminal racist messaging they use.
    You need them to call you the n word while being chased by village idiots to get when someone is being racist to you.

  • RespectSelf

    While I am cool on black people now wanting to have back bones an check everybody of stuff…I feel like they are starting to reach for EVERYTHING. Like stop! and chill!!!! The real message was that he needs to humble himself just a little smh

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Would Phil Jackson have used the term “posse” if LeBron’s team were sprites? I don’t think so.

    The thing is maverick carter is a Harvard MBA dude is much more than Lebron’s posse and everybody knows that. I wouldn’t call Phil racist I guess but it was demeaning and disrespectful.

  • MystyBlu

    Hmmm poor choice of words for Phil but I don’t necessarily think he was being racist. I think he was being corny and using outdated language. Like his slang is stuck in the 90s. ? Many athletes travel with not just friends and family but “others”. That may be why he chose to say posse rather than friends. I don’t care for Lebron one way or the other but I think he’s not used to criticism and doesn’t handle it well. This is a nonissue for me with soooooo many other things going on.

  • brooklyn23

    Agreed

  • harley_quinn2.0

    “Posse is not a racist term, nor has anyone ever felt Phil Jackson is racist – other than that…” tweeted ESPN commentator Douglas Gottlieb.

    LeBron didn’t call Phil a racist. But to refer to a group of professional black men as a posse is disrespectful. Would anyone refer to Tom Brady’s team as being a posse? Hell no and THEY know that.

  • Alexis Carson

    Me neither. Which sucks because I really adore his wife. She’s beautiful. But not a fan of Lebron….Lebron James is exactly what Joakim Noah said he is “a HOLLYWOOD DIVA…no matter how many shots you hit and rings you get..you still a B*t*H tho” LOL! And he is right. HAHA Shot out to my dog Joakim Noah we miss yo keep it real mentality in Chicago.

    Is she serious? Smh.

  • MystyBlu

    Ehhhh Lebron should be the last one to parse someone’s words when he consistently mangles the English language. Many of his comments on current events have been ill constructed so if I let him slide for his word choices I’m gonna look the other way this time for Phil. Now if I hear some other nonsense from Mr. Jackson it’s a done deal!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Scandalous.

  • Alexis Carson

    Ultimately I dont think he is a racist..But at the same time I dont know.. His choice of words was wrong. But out of the abundance of the heart …the mouth speaks. People speak how they really feel. So I dont know. Like you said I dont want to believe that. I expect Scottie Pippen or somebody of that era to defend him in 5..4..3..2..lol

  • RespectSelf

    Well if you actually look up the word… its not bad. Only speaking from experience… black people will take words that has no negative connotation and make it something bad. I once used the word “comprehend” and it was as if I said “nigga you stupid”

  • MissyJ

    Dog whistle words… Folks love to act like they don’t understand

  • TOO REAL

    Lebron it’s funny that your privilege ass can use the racist card when it suits YOUR purpose but when it about EVERYONE else “let’s find common ground and discuss the problems. So Lebron go find your common ground and MAN-UP and call Jackson and stop being a whinning little BITCH.

  • Elevated Soul

    Oh lordt…..LeBron sit all the way back down!

  • reddfoxxy16

    Um…Sir, or Ma’am, I comprehend subliminal racism VERY well..Rather subtle, or blatant, IN MY OPINION, I just don’t feel that this was the case.. However, you do & that’s cool, you’re entitled 2 feel that way…Carry on..

  • IZumba

    I still look at the clip when Joakim called him a b*itch. Funny as hail

  • lil goodie

    What happened…?????

  • Buttercup

    Sensitive much? I’ve never thought as posse as a racial slur, but then again I’ve never researched it.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    I don’t know the context of the conversation, but it seems reaching?

    Many black players have worked with Phil and this is the first. I think he should have a conversation with him.

    Some say
    Crew
    Clique
    Posse
    Body
    Organization
    Pack
    Band
    Thugs
    Gang….Oh get it, Lebron thought he was saying he in a gang.

    It’s really reaching, I can’t side with him on this one.

    FACEPALM

  • SoulPowerEnergy

    Put some clothes on

  • MystyBlu

    Oh and isn’t Lebron an “all lives matter” advocate? He sees racism in the word posse but not in police brutality or the killing of black men? Can’t have it both ways sir. ? He likes to thread the needle to keep up with his image and endorsements when it comes to the community but we’re supposed to get up in arms because Phil basically called him a diva and a brat. I’m good sir. Sorry your feelings were hurt though *shrug*

  • CapricornIce

    Team?LeBron.

  • Buttercup

    She looks like a different picture in each picture: Kum K. Nikki Baby, Ziva from NCIS, Joanne the Scammer.

  • jayhawkpride

    I totallty agree. During Phil’s heyday, they referred to the athlete’s crew or entourage as “posse!!”

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Especially the last one lol.

  • SoulPowerEnergy

    Meanwhile his beautiful black family and not a Mexican or a … ?

    He lives BLACK lives matter and that says a lot.

  • SoulPowerEnergy

    SR what exactly is your talent?

  • RespectSelf

    Right!!! Maybe I would take this a little different if he seemed to out there making noise about other stuff…. But you mad because he said that you Diva and wanted to hang with your mom and “posse”

    Ummm I don’t know what you’re talking about? What does a Mexican have to do with my comment? Because he has a black family that makes him a champion for the cause? Never mind I don’t think I care…

  • Buttercup

    No one despised Junior Healey more than MamaButter. She never gave up an opportunity to let us know how she wouldn’t tolerate us if we acted like Junior or Angelica.

  • MissHarlem

    Piss poor choice of words point blank. I’m glad that he’s taking a stand for respect. That’s what this all boils down to. I hear key words that raises my inner ear so I get it.

  • SoulPowerEnergy

    We all know what black athletes do when they hit it big.

    Clearly Lebron James is not a sell out and loves his people.

  • MystyBlu

    Lebron plays both sides of the fence very well. I usually pay him no mind. He’s said plenty of things that rub me the wrong way but I don’t waste time to energy worrrying about it. I’m not about to get up in arms with Phil over this one poor choice of words. Again, if he comes out of his face sideways again I will feel some type of way. Right now it just seems like typical Lebron whining.

  • Junkanoo

    I thought things were going to mello out after the election but everyone is in their feelings and over reacting including LeBron James.

  • MystyBlu

    Boy/girl bye! Not talking about who he married because I don’t care. Plenty of people with black s/o are sell outs and plenty who are in interracial relationships still champion our causes. I don’t think Lebron is either. He talks out of both sides of his mouth based on current trends. He was BLM at the ESPYS and now all lives matter in September. He’s entitled to change his opinion but I’m entitled not to give a damn that Phil hurt his little feelings. ?

    There’s nothing racist about what was said. Lebron needs to get out his feelings. Everything is not racist. Yelling out something is racist every time something doesnt go your way is really hurting us right now.

  • L.T.L. Since 2007

    Is Phil a racist? I have no idea. But as someone said downthread, dog whistle words….

    Them:
    Family
    Associates
    Friends
    Even hangers on

    Us:
    Crew
    Posse
    Homies
    Sometimes Thugs

    It’s a play on words. Small, but HUGE at the same time.
    Not a huge Lebron fan, but as long as Phil has been in the game, I’m sure he knows this too.

  • JerseyMom

    Sandra, I know LeBron is your boo, but eff’ him. Next!

    Good one!

  • Rayne

    Phil with the “high ass” probably ain’t mean it like that. ? Now if he’d called y’all a pack of ni??ers then..

    I didn’t see where Lebron called him a racist. I do think he was right for calling him out on stereotypes, why couldn’t he have just called them his friends? It reminds me of a white female patient I had who wanted to keep using phrases like “homegirl” and crap and I was not having it.

  • Cricket404

    I’m with James on this one. NBA teams stay longer in cities all the time. I remember when the Lakers under Jackson would come to Cleveland a day or two early for the players (Shaw, Kobe) to attend LeBron’s high school games in Akron (40 minutes outside of Cleveland), if the team was in a hot climate city, they would stay an extra day if the schedule allowed it. It’s done all the time, Jackson is a tool. Teams will fly to Vegas for fun if the schedule allows it.

  • Keesh5000

    The problem is the title of the post…Lebron never said he was a racist…did he? He said he sterotyped. Maybe Phil been in the game so long, it may be normal for him to use certain terms like “Posse,” Homies,” Bruh,” and who knows what else.

    Had to take it back to the old school when we would send shouts out in the AM. I miss those days. Im back in my office of desk duty for a few years…damn:(

  • Finding Forever…

    I can respect the shiiit out of it too. You’re entitled to feel how you feel because he clearly voiced his opinion on you. Just have the BALLS to say it & STAND it. How many of them would NEVER say anything because he is The Great Phil Jackson? Here’s some advice for him… Go advise Scottie & Larsa. That’s who needs a third set of ears & eyes, LOL. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0b8a3f9e10908e9fdbad02648feab504fadd8c02aa1059549cc5d06f80e28d8f.gif

  • Genia

    So the word Posse’ is urban slang now? Is it because the definition means “group of ARMED men”????

  • nucynu25

    Exactly …am not outraged but this grown ass man is entitled to his feelings . And if he feels disrespected SPEAK ON IT ..BC I know I would .

  • Finding Forever…

    Muslim kids are scared to go to school. Pen pals with my nephews school & THIS what their Principal has to deal with. Churches being vandalized. Students at Towson University & a high school in P.G. walked out of class on a bright note.

  • MystyBlu

    Just because I am not up in arms about this one particular word on this one particular occasion doesn’t mean I don’t demand respect for myself or I don’t understand the use of trigger words. As it pertains to Phil (who I’ve never known to make racist comments) I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt this one time that it was poor wording. Maybe I am more understanding of that seeing as how I had a similar occurrence a couple weeks ago. I am an LGBT advocate and have had trangensder clients who have now become friends. When one of the ladies said she missed having me in group I said “I’ve missed you guys too”. It was an off the cuff remark that has more to do with my Jersey slang than her gender identity and I felt terrible about it. Doesn’t mean I don’t respect her or her gender identity. Means I was tired and slipped into my habitual slang. I would be very upset if she held that against me and assumed I was choosing not to use her preferred pronouns. Long story short, I don’t know Phil’s intentions with his words and Lebron can feel how he chooses to about it. But I don’t have to be mad about it to be “woke”.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Your neighbor 76 year pop pop said the same damn thing. I chat with him on my way to work in the am. SHRUG.

    But he old man and maybe he don’t know any better.

  • nucynu25

    Well spoken ?

  • Buttercup

    Just call the customer service number of your provide. Your phone number (if you call from your cell) is probably linked to your account. No need to go digging around in your mailbox.

  • LibraGirlonly

    This is ridiculous. This is nothing of importance to be upset about.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Bron not the one who made the original ruckus. Over the use of Jackson using term posse.

    It either didn’t faze him, he ain’t say ish initially, we don’t know.

    His biz partner Maverick (oh the irony since its in re to the word posse) Carter did.

    LeBron then jumped on the bandwagon of Mav and was like you damn right Maverick!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    The cable bill too damn high! Internet is an arm and a leg too.

  • Renee26

    ALLLLL OF THIS!!

  • Yoni

    My number isn’t linked to the account. I used an old number (that I can’t remember), then I changed it. Now I don’t know what it is. So yeah…..no. LOL

  • Zizzle

    If “posse” is urban slang then ‘Gunsmoke’ is urban tv.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This story is incommmmmmmmmmmmmpleeeete (in my Sisqo voice)

  • SoulPowerEnergy

    DT is their race war President. These people peddling this nonsense are very wicked and diabolical. They work with esoteric magic and hermeticism this is how they stay in power.
    Right now they want their martial law and will use every tactic they can to get it. Pray, pray, pray and get close to the heavenly Father its going down! This is not a time to be fickle with your faith. A spiritual war is ahead in the form of racism.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    I’ve missed you guys too”. It was an off the cuff remark
    =====================
    I bursted out laughing!!!!!!!!

    Well said, and I agree with you on what you said. I think sometimes we are offended about things that shouldn’t. But that’s my opinion.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    That’s his man. They building something great over there so they deserve respect.

    It seems that LeBron is a habitual bandwagon jumper-onner.

  • MissHarlem

    Top of the morning ?

  • ramosyo

    He is an asshole and ugly one at that imo

  • Incog-knee-gress

    But for folks to big up Bron for taking a stand Im like but he let it ride. He didnt SAY ish until MAVERICK did.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Many folks are, that be jumping on the wrong wagon and could very well be on a fast moving train.

    Morning : )

    What we drinking this weekend?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    AND WITH TRUMP, THEY ARE MORE OPEN TO SAYING IT ?

  • Buttercup

    Dang. I tried to save you some trouble.

  • ChocolateChick84

    I agree with Bron, aside from being a fan, I call a spade a spade. You have to know that labeling a certain group thugs or posse is a code word for other things. Don’t ever think that we can’t decipher the bs. They have every right to be pissed. It also bothers me when people discredit things because of their personal relationship with someone. You can’t come out and say Phil Jackson is not a racist, you say he has never displayed anything racist to me or in my presence. You never know truly how anyone acts in the privacy of their own home or around like-minded individuals.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    You watch Centric Last night or PBS?

  • Yoni

    I missed last week because I was on the phn with my homegirl, who is obviously not a QS fan. LOL So I missed it. I was schleep by 930 last night (worked 730 to 730). I txt stalker like “if you call and I don’t answer don’t be mad…….good fukkin night.” He gets off at 11. #wrap LMAO

  • Scromes1212

    True but he probably didn’t care. But he was probably getting hit up by his mans and felt the need to show his support for them.

  • socaligirl99

    I saw your post about meat in the mailbox for that elector. Can you swing by the governors mansion and leave some there too with an eviction notice for that idiot? The people of Mecklenburg County kindly thank you. Lol

  • Incog-knee-gress

    but he probably didn’t care.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    And if he didnt care why are folks riding for him taking some kind of stand against verbal racism?

  • PettyEyezPrime

    ?OK. I’m using this today.
    Hey Butter!

  • Yoni

    I don’t have Centric and no. But I know about the Riker’s Island special. I didn’t turn my TV ON last night.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    If you gonna tell a story give folks the whole entire scenario.
    Jackson recounted the posse thing.
    Maverick is the one who took PUBLIC exception.
    LeBron took up the rear to back him.
    Its not like Lebron was like aye Phil that was wrong I no longer respect you.
    This is not how it happened. Maverick Carter is not eem mentioned above.

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Yeah, its out of control. Mayor, Govenors need to address to on a local level.

    This man has brought so much confusion. But that what SATAN and his suggurgates do.

  • Scromes1212

    Lebrun do what’s in his best interest. He a capitalist lol

  • Yoni

    The bill ain’t gone be hard to find. It’ll stick out like a sore thumb…….as always. LOL I already know the exact amount. I just need the acct number. LOL

  • Buttercup

    I don’t know if I’ll drink this weekend. I’m meeting MamaButter halfway (1.5 hours) so that Lil Butter can spend his break with her before I go down there Wednesday. I just want to get a mani pedi and my hair pressed and trimmed. There is a cranberry and bourbon ****tail I want to mix up.

    “Maverick Carter takes issue with Phil Jackson’s comments about LeBron James”
    Not Lebron James. Maverick Carter is the one who took exception to it.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Just glad he taking up for his team.

  • quenelle

    People please look up the ‘Barry Atwater’ secret recordings on youtube. White people have been using euphemisms to substitute for the N word since the 60’s. If you are black, and you can’t see that greater society knows that ‘posse’ implies black men, ie niccas please wake the hell up.

  • MystyBlu

    There you go with those receipts! I was too lazy to look for it but I’m not surprised at Lebron’s delayed reaction.

  • Scromes1212

    Lol stop it. Phil was dead wrong. On top of the fact that if Jordan wanted to stay another night on the road in 94, they staying another night lol

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Phil was wrong as hell. But the fact remains that Bron aint say not one thing public til his homeboy did. In that case you not being a race warrior. You just being a co-signer. There is a difference. Do I think he is discriminated on in the NBA? Yes. But should you say something public like each and EVERY time it happens? Yes you should if you want folks to take you serious that you are woke. Dont be tryna spin shat.

  • Yoni

I have neither the strength nor the desire to fight a fight for a man who wasn’t even upset when it first happened and probably won’t care again by tomorrow. I’m living my best life and letting this one gooooo lol I’m ready to enjoy my loved ones this holiday season and only allow myself to get stressed when it really counts.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    Bron the one who needs to wake up. Sounds like it went right the hell over his head until one of his handlers said aye man. That was racist.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Words have such strong meaning. Posse in and of itself isn’t bad but accomplished African American men who make millions of dollars, do good works for their communities and have uber successful business as a group are not a posse and should not be referred to as such. If Tom Brady and his friends or business partners were doing exactly what these men are doing and made the same request that LeBron made they would be referred to as “philanthropists” or “business men” or “associates”. Referring to his associates as a posse kind of belittles them in a way — like they are not to be taken seriously.

    Dog whistle racism. We’ve all experienced it. I was working at a smoothie place back in the day….we had a mandatory employee meeting that I went to before I left to go on my trip to panama city. Upon my return I heard that white girls there had been joking about me and my “thug” boyfriend (he picked me up after the meeting). They didn’t know him had never met him yet they felt comfortable labeling him a thug?! It pissed me off! He was the least thugged out black man you could ever meet!

    Planning is key but life happens so it’s hard to keep any kind of schedule, especially this time of year. I’m sure everything will turn out beautifully for you! We usually don’t have a lot of extended family come over so luckily we can keep the set up small. Maybe 10-15 people tops this year.

    Right! She was tryna audition for the job of THOT #1 by playing up to Mama Jones. Jim was NOT tryna wife Yandy and even made mention of her ratchet activities in some motel. If Jim’s skank ass tryna stay away from a chick you already know what’s up. I’m sure Yandy smashed plenty of her homies under the guise of being the cool chick. She wears her desperation on her sleeve. Her choice of spouse and the drama with his other chicks sealed the deal for me. She’s an educated bird.

  • RespectSelf

    I agree that this country was built on racism. Unfortunately hate for black people is universal!!!! Mexicans call blacks ****s… Middle easterns aren’t all that cool with black people. Asians, even Africans, got a little hate for American blacks folks. So my thing is black people need to work on doing stuff to better themselves instead of checking every single thing,,, cuz it’s going to be way to much to have to check.

    Boy bye. Even Melo had to change the term he would normally use, crew, to try to make what Phil said wrong. Usually business partners have their own lives and responsibilities and can’t be travelling to every game. They are his business team and entourage. Buddies that he wisely and generously gave real jobs. Posse is not racist. Practically every young celeb has an entourage/crew/posse.

    I am not a fan either but Lebron wanted to stay because it was Thanksgiving and I believe he was trying to run a food drive for the community…so for Phil to say that as if he was just trying to chill with family was odd ….and the Posse lingo ….can be taken as disrespectful…they are professionals not a bike crew

    How about their professional title for starters. If it’s not known, don’t just relegate them to being a “posse”.

  • MystyBlu

    With so many crazy things going on I’m cautiously optimistic about justice being served. This election sealed the deal for me. Far more people than I ever imagined have a completely opposite code of ethics than I do. What I may see as obviously wrong, such as the disproportionate murders of black and brown people, others see as police officers doing their very dangerous jobs and protecting themselves and the community from predators. Totally different concept of reality. I can only pray for justice in this and all cases.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    They are his entourage. That’s what they are.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Hey y’all. Ok so I don’t think posse is racist. However, I do think Phil was trying to be smart and derogatory. He could of said friends. Phil might want to stfu. But don’t mind me because I don’t like him anyway.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    This. Bc he has had run in with Bron before. I think he just plain ole dont like Bron. and I have NEVER liked Phil. Not never. I am and always have been here for Pat Riley and Gregg Popvich actually.

    I understand. I always looked at like im being prepared for the great things to come.

  • MystyBlu

    I would have to actually see and hear him say it. Like did he pull a Bruce Leroy and try to “ghetto” the term up like “Hey my man what it look like?” Complete with facial expressions and hand motions? I’ve not heard the word used in a racist way. Have heard people say round up the posse but didn’t get a negative vibe from it? The word itself is not my issue it would be the tone and manner in which it was said. Plenty of words SEEM harmless but can be said in a very negative or condescending way.

I have never cared for Phil or his broad shoulders as I couldn’t stand the bulls or the lakers.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Exactly. Lebron and his crew zeroed in on posse because Phil’s whole statement was a slam against LeBron’s diva behavior. I guess they didn’t feel right addressing the fact that them and Lebron want special treatment so they focused in one word and made it racial when it wasn’t. I was more offended that Phil seemed to think that Lebron owed Miami allegiance when Cleveland was his original team.

  • MystyBlu

    Yeah I don’t get the race connection BUT it could just be where I’m from. I only ever heard it used as 90s-early 2000 slang by black people (which wasn’t negative at all) and in old white westerns. Has no meaning to me one way or another. Phil tried to call Lebron out on something that wasn’t his business even though they asked about it. Rather than address the content they chose to focus on that one word.

    ‘Ape in heels’: W.Va. mayor resigns amid controversy over racist comments about Michelle Obama

    CLAY, W.Va. — Officials in this tiny West Virginia town are fighting for their community’s reputation following a nationwide uproar over racist comments about Michelle Obama that prompted the mayor to resign.

    Mayor Beverly Whaling, who had commented approvingly on a Facebook post comparing the first lady to an ape, turned in her letter of resignation Tuesday. Joe Coleman, the town recorder, said the resignation was effective immediately; officials here are now scrambling to replace the mayor, who had three years left on her term.

    Whaling resigned a day after the director of a government-funded nonprofit was removed from her position amid the backlash over her Facebook post.

    Nice! I may have to visit one Sunday. I’m at my mom’s for a few days and I played it for her last night. Both of us kept mumbling it til we went to bed. ?

    Sad. A veteran that needs a special needs dog. Man even touched his dog. Sick.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Still here for now. Hoping to move to southern FL in the next year or so.

  • TDK

    Semantics hell!!!! There’s a total and big difference between these two words.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Good thing he took his phone outs

  • MystyBlu

    Me too. I think I saw it on yahoo. Where the evil commenters chose to focus on his uniform being wrinkled and the fact that he wore an earring. Can’t please unhappy people. The manager and that nosy ass customer were both dead wrong. End of story!

  • Incog-knee-gress

    LMAOOOOOO. MamaBlu probably real tickled. Her church is the one I was talking about that sends folks statements on what they are supposed to give annually based on their income and if you aint pay it they send you an invoice. And as an added bonus…you can go to the ATM machine that is in the church and withdraw it out if you want to.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    It’s a “dogwhistle” – a subtle, almost undetectable way of labeling a group of “others” without being overt about it. Just like the new word for Ni??er is Thug.

    That being said, I would like to think that he didn’t mean it all like that. We can be a little sensitive about things sometimes, especially after this terrible and seemingly interminable election season.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Yes. It’s a very old slang term for crew/group of friends. And an even older term from the western era.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    When it happened way back on last Friday. Smdh.
    Happy belated Vets Day Bird. I know you are former military. I wished the all military Roses one but you werent here on Friday I dont think.

  • MystyBlu

    I’m not sure where I’ll end up ?I like certain things about NC but still don’t think this is where I’ll plant roots. Working on a compromise with my guy about where to live since he’s in VA. I’ll see. Good luck with your move! What part of FL?

  • TDK

    WOW!! Black people aren’t doing things to better ourselves everyday? Are blacks the only race that have slackers? You can’t be serious!!!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    No it isn’t. Post both definitions. Either way I know what it means and there have never been racial connotations associated with that term.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    It’s Chili’s we not talking 5-star Michelin and that old fart going off.

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    But it is racial and that’s the whole point. Words matter. The words they use to describe us always have negative conotations to them.

    That being said, I don’t necessarily believe the statement was made with malice. Does he have a history of saying borderline insensitive things?

  • MystyBlu

    Lmao yesssss! I played her the Miss Berniece videos last time I was here and she was hoarse with laughter!
    Nah never mind then. I don’t do that mandatory tithing nonsense. To each their own, but I won’t let a church dictate the quality of my relationship with God based on how much money I give them. Sorry, not sorry. I’ll stay blessed without a receipt attached.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    That’s exactly it. I was looking to start a business and it hit me that I didn’t want to be here for the rest of my life. That’s Florida so it’s time for me to make the move.

  • MystyBlu

    Exactly! And so what if he’s wrinkled or wears an earring?! He’s not CURRENTLY in the military. Anything to denigrate us and our struggles.

  • TDK

    But who are YOU to decide how blacks should take something? you’re not black? If you are black, chile……..

  • Jussie-JustLooking4Peace

    Yeah, I rememeber coming through there back in 03 scared to pieces, but I’ve driven through there about dozen times 4 to visit Looking Jr, down in southern VA. CHILE

    Pittshburgh is someting else too.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    My mama LOVES Joanne the Scammer. I play her the new ones often. This is what this reminds me of.

  • RespectSelf

    lol you can’t be serious to take what I said to mean that black people are slackers. Maybe I should have reworded what I was saying. American black people are the most divided group of people. And When I was thinking about black people bettering themselves…. I was thinking about black people working on uniting each other to start building together more…. that’s all. Not that black people are slackers lol

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Thanks babe.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    He did. LOL!

  • MystyBlu

    Exactly! Instead of a business I’m looking to start a family. With all the nonsense I’m not sure this is where I want to raise children. Haven’t figured out where I’ll move yet but my career is in high demand everywhere so I’m more concerned about finding a safe comfortable place to live.
    I know you’re a go-getter so I’m sure your business will be successful!

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Just because it was negative doesn’t mean it’s racial. Yes Phil Jackson speaks his mind. He has never displayed racist traits.

  • TDK

    ????????

  • MystyBlu

    I have to get into those videos. I first heard about Joanne on here but I only saw a few videos. I’m gonna share those with her too! She was so down about the election I had to find something silly to make her feel better.

  • nucynu25

    So I get a customer in my office as am trying to explain our programs & how we work ..her son & daughter starting telling falso I info. I politely inform them that they ate wrong & I’ve been sitting at this desk for 2 yes I dont need any help . Son tells his Gf to , “Stupid up BC he doesn’t want to go off on nobody .” ????Bitch excuse me …so I try to keep calm & politely ask them to remove themselves from my office . They step outside & block that door . I go to take my copies & take the customer with me . I then proceed to tell her that I Dont have the time nor patience to play with her kids. If she wants to do business thats fine but I won’t be disrespected in the process . She says okay & I can tell she’s embarrassed. So we go to walk back in my office you know this Lil boy & his ugly ass Gf got my door damn near blocked ..so being the professional I am I say excuse me & wiggle back into my office but at this point THEY GOT ME FUKED UP .So I step out the office & look them in the face & tell they disrespectful asses am not the one & i do not play with children .

  • MystyBlu

    Finally new post(s)!

  • Irony

    Phil is undoubtfully a good coach and LJ is a good player, but there’s a time when you have to call a spade a DAMN SPADE! LJ is spoiled and entitled. Phil has built his empire off the sweat of black men. #ModernDaySlavery

  • Morgan

    I’ve never heard that term “dog whistle” racism before, but it’s exactly what this was. He know he should have said family or friends, but he also knew he could get away with using the term posse because if Lebron or anyone dare call him out on it, they’d be considered too sensitive and playing the race card. I guess a man’s mother is considered part of his “posse” now. No longer his family.

  • goat

    entourage- a group of people attending or surrounding an important person

    posse- a body of men, typically armed, summoned by a sheriff to enforce the law.

    Entourage would have been more fitting than a group of armed black men.

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Thank you. From your lips to God’s ears.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I’m going to keep pushing

  • Petty Patty Cakes

    Well that’s good to know. I’m not personally offended by this but I am fully aware of how people try to talk their ish without saying it plainly.

    Much ado about nothing, perhaps?

  • RespectSelf

    But that is is not applied to everyday life. People tell you that if you waste your focusing on the little ****… it makes it harder for you to get to where you are going. “posse” is the little ****. I’m not saying that Lebron can’t be mad about that…He can!.. I’m saying that black people as whole don’t have time to giving that too much life. It seems more like a distraction than anything. Just like black people worrying about lil wayne (who is a rapper that looks like a crack head) making his comments about BLM and racism… like come on. You know how many people got something to say….

  • TDK

    Yes your verbiage totally threw me off. However I do agree that we blacks are very divided.

  • RespectSelf

    Sometimes you have to get these kids right… They out of control!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    right sounds like he just went to a new location

  • goat

    Spoiled and entitled because of him wanting to stay in Cleveland over night?

  • goat

    It takes little time and effort to check somebody. No excuses, both can be done.

  • stanhope

    Bitch, have you lost your mind? How much is LeBron worth to the sport..notice I didn’t say team and to the city? He is entitled to certain concessions as any hollywood or recording star asks for AND gets. Haters gon hate.

  • RespectSelf

    Well this is an example of what I am basically saying. It is too many things that people can trip off to be worry about every little thing. I can say something with without remotely having ill intentions and then someone can come along and be upset…. Uniting as a group of people is bettering themselves. And bettering themselves is not define by money or book smarts to me.

  • stanhope

    Tell it!

  • Irony

    No, my assessment has nothing to do with staying in Cleveland. That’s just how he has come off at times.

  • Kilroy

    Preach!

  • Liah

    I agree!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Phil got a lot to say about Lebron, but I have yet to hear him go into the details of Michael Jordan or Kobe. He’s very careful about who he talks about. He need to work on turning that triangle into a square, circle, octagon, or something because those Knicks are whack.

  • Alexis Carson

    Watch that bitch word ain’t that serious. Don’t know you and you don’t know me. . But you defending Lebron like you sleeping with him. I don’t give a damn how much he is worth it doesn’t affect my wallet so screw you and him. And I STILL SAY what I say.
    If I’m a hater your a **** rider. And a broke one because he ain’t paying you so CHILL ???

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    ‘ya mama’ is your go to comeback?

    Read a book, you illiterate bum!

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Until now there hasn’t been any big revolt against anything racist they do at sports… The guy who used the “n” words and basically said that s how it is… Only got the team playing with reverse t-shirt.. To me all this talk resolves at nothing.

    Will Lebron continue playing or will he skip the game to really make a revolution???

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Bronnie was a mess back in the day which is why I didn’t care for him the first go round he has matured and I think that he couldn’t do what he wanted to like in Cleveland brought his arse back. Posse is not racist back in my day there was a song and movie with the title and we loved it.

  • http://disqus.com/ yoliewinecorporation

    Whatever LeBron your whining ass. How you think you won NBA championship along with your other posses on the team

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I thought about the movie also when I read that.

    Lebron is a cry baby. Lost my respect when he used the Florida police to escort him to Jay & Bey concert while regular black folks there getting incarcerated just for being black.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I remember that too. His letter made me change my opinion on him. I loathed him his whole first time here.

  • RIFcantReadBlocked

    I don’t believe he used that word in a racist manner. If Lebron was white and pulled that ****t holding the team up, I believe Phil would have said the same thing. IE: Johnny Manziel

  • QweenOfThorns

    Lol. I just made that up from the term “dog whistle politics” it fit the situation though. What you said about being labeled “to sensitive” to this kind of micro-aggression is absolutely right. It’s just a way to turn the attention away from the accused.

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    racist no disrespectful YES!

  • Soldier Woman

    No I don’t…The N word is worst than the word “posse” but we use that word all the time..we hear it every day from comedians to rappers. He didn’t call them a gang, thugs or a group of hoodlums…Posse could mean group… enjoy your evening

  • Soldier Woman

    You believe? Food drive? Ok…I read spending time with his family. Don’t inconvenience me..I don’t give a damn who u r!!! Do that on your own time. Thank you

  • Dane

    Remember most of these posters are still pretty young. Pretty much everything offends them nowadays.

    Remember original Arsenio? His house band was his posse.

    Like I wrote in a post on Dave Chappelle, non-P.C. does not equal racist. And I, personally, don’t even consider the term non-P.C. Me & my peeps, when we roll out, we a posse. Unarmed but a tight group.

  • Dane

    If the word posse offends you, take the n-word out of your vocabulary, too!

  • PrettyBrown28

    Reaching. His feelings are hurt.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Posse is urban slang really….. we borrowed it from John Wayne and Clint Eastwood movies. Posse’s are what sheriffs gathered up to catch wanted fugitives during the Wild Wild West. Just to be fair so it’s not racist Bron Bron ….

  • ALLMINE

    I can’t take these crying a## negros anymore..?

  • Li

    I thought posse meant a bunch of friends you run with. How would Lebron take the word “crew”? I think it’s silly.

  • Li

    I don’t think it’s disrespectful. What was Phil supposed to call them – “crew”? Would that be better. I think Lebron would have jumped on that too.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Whenever we gather, it’s a gang or kind of suspect, even in Corporate America. If a white ball player travel or hang out and party with his friends, they’re just that friends. Phil wasn’t being racist, in my opinion, but conditioned like most people, white and black. We are always lesser than regardless of what we do, unless they’re doing it, then it’s fine, or cool! However, I do believe the LJ is spoiled, and that would be a lot for a star player to ask, when they [the team] have their own lives and concerns! I’m sure ALL the players weren’t thrilled about the layover! James isn’t attacking the action, or denying it, or justifying, or qualifying why he asked his whole team to stay over a night. But, Tom Brady is untouchable!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Agreed, LJ is spoiled, it is what it is!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Obviously, it wasn’t a big deal for him [LJ] at the time, but something that lingered with Phil Jackson, after years of being around NBA’s best (different era)! I think some people are still mad that LJ created his dream team and it worked, 2 championship titles, still hurts some! But, this [stereotyping or profiling] will NEVER END. Blackface is as popular as ever, people are obsessed about black people in this country!

    So Yeah, posse definitely has a negative connotation and most will see it as LJ was just being ghetto, hanging out with his thug-friends, regardless of the guest list status!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Thanks sis! I just forwarded that to someone who’s school is joining and she’ll nominate some students!

    Awesome ???

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    I steal say me and my posse ???

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    Lol there’s nothing wrong with it.

  • Irony

    It depends on what side of the globe you’re from. Words change meanings all the time. Now are you referencing it how one would use it in the “hood?” Ive never used it, but I heard people use it. And that context was in the sense of “gang.”

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Yes mom.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Imma staht calling The Roses ah posse ?

  • ImNotThatGrl

    Agreed. I’m sure Lebron thinks the sun rises and sets on him but Phil got a little too comfortable. You’re right about corporate america. We call it the rule of 3 – if 3 or more black people are talking business it’s assumed you’re fooling around. Even if it’s two black people talking business they will walk right up and start talking – no excuse me, may I interrupt, nothing. #disrepectful

    but he said nothing about that owners letter.OK Lebron

  • Dolemite

    synonyms for posse” : gang, band, group, crowd, pack, horde, herd, throng, mob, swarm, troop, cluster, um not a good choice of wording Phil, gotta do better

  • Bonny

    My “Posse on Broadway…Posse up”. “Those were the days”.

  • Jugears McGhetto Jr

    He wouldn’t wanna know what I call him and his posse.

  • BMcKiaA

    I’m confused: He “ASKED” if they could stay in CLE overnight. He didn’t MAKE them stay. It was up to the staff. Spo is so weak, he could’ve said no. That’s how you break the mold if you feel LBJ is spoiled. Help him come out of it where it’s not at the teams expense. Miami staff were the WEAK ones.

    Why would Phil brink this up now anyway?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I’m sure they call their friends, their “Nigg as”, but they’re mad because Phil said “posse”??

  • Yoni

    Illiterate is the only word you seem to know. You must have heard it a lot growing up. Stick around, you’ll see how “illiterate” I can get, sweetie. Someone will be contacting you shortly.

  • S. Williams

    same. where I’m from posse= gang

  • S. Williams

    there is such a thing as innate prejudice. we all have them. you can say you love everyone but if you saw a woman in a hijab you probably would exhibit physiological signs of fear based on something inside you that you can’t control. what you do with that innate prejudice is up to you. I don’t blv Phil Jackson is racist. but there definitely is underlying prejudice that caused him to use that term

  • TOO REAL

    RACIST MY ASS – ANY TIME YOU WANT PEOPLE TO FOLLOW YOU, USE THE RACE CARD RIGHT LEBRON. SPARE ME. PICK UP A BOOK AND EDUCATE YOURSELF. STOP MAKING EVERYTHING RACIST WHEN THERE IS REAL INJUSTICE GOING ON IN THE WORLD THAT YOU DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT BECAUSE YOUR ARE A PRIVELEGED ONE. STOP WHINNING LIKE A LITTLE BI-CH AND COUNT YOUR MONEY THAT YOU MAKE OFF THE SAME PEOPLE YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO HELP. SIT IT DOWN LEBRON – TIRED OF YOU

  • 6ixGod

    Yet when Dan Gilbert called him a slave boy in that scathing letter he ain’t say shat, not only did he not say shat but he went back to that mans team. I guess his thirst for rings disguised as some charity gesture homecoming was more important than integrity. Bye Lebron with this selective outrage. Phil is not racist.

  • 6ixGod

    As talented as Lebron is on the court off the court he is not too bright. His friend Maverick was the one who got upset and put it in Lebrons ear that is was racism. Lebron doesn’t even know what the word means.

  • 6ixGod

    If he called them his entourage Lebron would complain that he is insinuating that he is a diva? You can’t win.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    awww you’re so hurt that you reported my comment. illiterate must’ve hit a nerve.

  • Nina Ross

    Did Lebron look into the Tamir Rice case yet? Does he think the Cleveland police are racist for EXECUTING black kids!???

  • Scott Land

    Li, I agree. When I hear “posse”, I think of the old Western saying back in the 1800’s. “I rode into town on my horse with my posse”. Lebron is creating more racism! This is Lebron’s opinion, and unfortunately he can go onto TV at any point and say this to the whole world. Kids that look up to him and love him, will now think this way because their idol says this. Go sit down somewhere Lebron, you’re doing too much.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    All the time, like we’re planning a coo or something!

  • Yoni

    Hurt? Over you? Why? Illiterate? Never. Someone will be contacting you shortly.

  • goat

    Posse mean an armed group of men. In America a group of armed black men would not be called a posse by the masses. Phil is a professional, he could have chosen a better word but he didn’t and some young black professionals checked him. My evening was great, hope yours was too.

  • goat

    Possibly.

  • goat

    As a professional, he should have referred to them as he(Phil) and his business associates like to be recognized as. It ain’t that hard to figure that out. Treat me as you like to be treated.

  • Soldier Woman

    Enjoy your weekend!

  • goat

    Will do.

  • Joe

    Meanwhile Lebron uses the word “Retard” and thats fine I guess. When he was called out on it he said it’s just a bad habit.. If Phil’s a racist for using a word that refers to someones crew.. that has nothing to do with race. Then Lebron is a bigot for being insensitive and completely disrespectful to individuals with mental illness or ailments.. He’s a punk as bitch is what he is

  • http://KINGOFTHECRAZIES.COM Jim Andersen

    Thank you Pres. Obama for bringing America to this garbage where black Americans make it their main goal in life to find meaningless excuses to call white Americans nothing but hateful racists. Are the ultra rich somewhere trying to start a genocidal race war? Makes more sense than Phil being racist about Lebron’s personal wants.
