Retired NBA coach Phil Jackson sounded off on the possibility of professional gay male athletes in a new interview with HuffPost Live.

 

Jackson, who served as head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls, said he'd "never run into" a gay professional basketball player throughout his career.

 

 

When asked if the organizations needed to be more inclusive towards gay players, the 11-time NBA champion coach called the question "ridiculous," before noting, "There's no inclusiveness to be had."

 

Four-time NBA champion Kurt Rambis, who previously served as head coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves, added, "There hasn't been a player who was openly gay in the NBA ... it wouldn't surprise me if there was."

Uhhh, why was this moved to NBA Talk? Phil Jackson, greatest Laker coach of all-time, Shaq, Laker legend, just had his jersey retired last night relevant, Rambis, Laker legend as well? What's the deal?

 

Besides, this isn't even gonna' get half the hits here compared to Lakers Talk. What's the big deal? If anything, isn't that better for the site? Who's doing this stuff?

Homosexuality is dominating everywhere ... People are giving big attention to it, and you can tell by news of gay players in NFL and NBA .. Would be funny to see a gay player dominates as center tbh..

I didn't move it, but I know why it was.

Simply put, Phil Jackson is talking about an NBA issue, not a Lakers one.
