Does it sound like he feels badly about it? More here:
Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson said he deserved the reprimand he got from the NBA on Wednesday for making a gay sexual reference in a comment following the Lakers' loss in San Antonio.
The Spurs made 13 three-pointers in their 107-92 victory on Tuesday night, and Jackson was asked if too much penetration was leading to open outside shooters. ''We call this a Brokeback Mountain game, because there's so much penetration and kick-outs,'' Jackson said. ''It was one of those games.'
Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation president Neil G. Giuliano issued a statement saying, ''Phil Jackson's been coaching long enough that he should be able to talk about the Lakers' performance without resorting to cheap gay jokes.''
