The New York Knicks President’s insensitive remarks were so offensive to James that even Jay Zcalled him out. On Thursday, Jackson finally addressed the backlash he received over his statements saying, “That’s a topic I’m not going to discuss because, one, we’re not supposed to discuss other teams’ players in this position that I have here. 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.”
Sources added that Jackson was “saddened” by how his comments were received and that he feels misunderstood because he was in no way trying to offend LeBron or his business team. Although he is remorseful and aware that his comments were racially charged and offensive, Jackson reportedly does not feel his comments warranted such criticism.
A wise person once said, when you hurt or offend someone, you’re not allowed to tell them how to feel (cc: Phil Jackson).
