NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has spoken with the Los Angeles Lakers about a sexual reference coach Phil Jackson made in a comment following Tuesday night's game in San Antonio.
The Spurs made 13 3-pointers in their 107-92 victory, 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 kickouts," Jackson said. "It was one of those games."

Oh, fer cryin’ out loud! Can’t the freaking press just go jump off a cliff?................
Actually I think the term is clever as all get out.
Because the press can't find a cliff without a map and they can't read a map?
What a bunch of nothing.
The Brokeback Mountain media and the pantywaist leftist PC crowd are becoming more and more a joke everyday.
Sometimes I think they are so stupid they couldn’t find porn on the Internet......
A classic Phil Jackson comment! I can’t believe how few people have a sense of humor these days!
I’ve said it before and often, people need to GROW A SPINE and get a bleepin’ sense of humor.
Whoops! Misspelled it again.
Perhaps you meant horn-y.............
The league was reacting to a complaint filed by GLAND.
LOL! Darn, better than mine.
GLAAD......GLAND....is there a difference?
Don’t be GLIB?.............
NBA can’t fine Jackson, or he’d have a slam dunk first amendment case.
tailgunners.. bahahaha.. that’s a new one to me.
