SLAM Week in Review: LeBron Slams Phil Jackson’s ‘Posse’ Reference

by November 19, 2016

In this edition of the SLAM Week in Review, LeBron James took exception to Phil Jackson’s labeling of his business associates as his “posse.” The three-time NBA champion tweeted that he had lost respect for Jackson as a result of the comments.

In other news, NCAA President Mark Emmert fired back at Ben Simmons and his recent SHOWTIME documentary, saying, “If someone wants to be a pro basketball player and doesn’t want to go to college, don’t go to college. We don’t put a gun to your head.”

And lastly, at least three NBA teams—the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks and Memphis Grizzlies—are boycotting hotels owned by Donald Trump this season.
