Phil Jackson: ‘Posse’ Comment ‘Something I Could Regret’


New York Knicks president Phil Jackson visited CBS Sports Network’s We Need To Talk on Tuesday, in an episode that will air at 6:30 p.m. ET. During the interview, Jackson gave his first public comments about his use of the word “posse” to describe LeBron James’ associates, which angered the superstar and his business partner, Maverick Carter.

“That’s a topic I’m not going to discuss because, one, we’re not supposed to discuss other team’s players in this position that I have here,” Jackson said. “So I violated one of the tenets of our thing. And the obvious thing is, the word itself carries connotation. And I just don’t understand that part of it, the word. So I guess word choice could be something I could regret. But yeah, talking about other teams players, that’s out of the box.”
