Typical Hypocrisy…

This article is very telling in that Phil Jackson’s political views would be respected had they matched his typical “left leanings”.  But, discover he actually supports a state’s right to enforce federal law, and he is villified.

Only when he holds a conservative viewpoint do protestors patronize him as one who might not be informed or needs more time to understand the law.  “He’s an expert at basketball but not at immigration law.” 

Also, why is a team or their coaches politics important.  They are in the entertainment business.   Shame on the Phoenix Suns for taking such a public stand.  But, as they were lauded for it, I want to say thanks to Phil and let him know I will be rooting for the Lakers!
