As you might be able to tell from the timing of this post I'm not watching the Lakers/Suns game right now - even though I should be rooting for the Suns I'm kind of superstitious that way and for some reason I figure by not watching - the Suns will win (although they need to get their ass in motion).
Yeah I know - it has no bearing whatsoever on the outcome of the game (unless they win).
But as I was checking out the score on ESPN I happened to catch this article on Phil Jackson and what he had to mumble on SB1070:
In comments made to ESPN.com's J.A. Adande on May 4 about state Senate Bill 1070, Jackson said, "Am I crazy, or am I the only one that heard [the legislature] say 'we just took the United States immigration law and adapted it to our state.'" [...]PJ though "made it clear he didn't want to get involved in politics and initially said he didn't think teams should get involved in politics as the Suns did on May 5 when they wore jerseys that read 'Los Suns' in Game 2 of their playoff series with the San Antonio Spurs. Suns players and owner Robert Sarver have spoken out against the bill."
And I think this one's still kind of coming out to balance as to how it's going to be favorably looked upon by our public. If I heard it right the American people are really for stronger immigration laws, if I'm not mistaken
So if you're Phil Jackson and you want to speak out on the bill and how favorably it could still be looked at (because apparently the jury is still out on whether or not this is a racist law) it's fine as a MF. But if you're - I don't know - anybody else in the NBA not named Phil Jackson - apparently you shouldn't say anything about it whatsoever.
Let's Recap Shall We?
On The Lakers' Team: Pau WTF Did Those Chinky Bastards Get Upset About Gasol and Phil How The Fuck Did All These Colored People Who Can't Speak English Get Into My Country Jackson.
On The Celtics: Sweet Sweet Ray.
I think the choice is simple.
