LA Lakers coach Phil Jackson has become the focus of ire from the illegal immigrant activists and those who can't read. They're planning a protest against Jackson at tonight's Lakers-Suns playoff game in Los Angeles:
Immigration activists plan to picket the NBA Western Division title game at Staples Center Monday evening, because Lakers coach Phil Jackson said he has no problem with Arizonas controversial new illegal immigration law.
...When Adande told Jackson that some feel the Arizona Legislature had usurped federal law, Jackson countered Arizona is not usurping, its just copying it is what they said they did, and then they give it some teeth to be able to enforce it.
Those comments have prompted the Mexican-American Political Association and Southern California Immigration Coalition to plan to picket Mondays Lakers game. We are not happy with the position that Phil Jackson took, said the groups leader, Nativo Lopez.

"We will not be getting involved in choosing sides among our many different support groups in any debate, nor will we be getting involved in political issues of this nature."
I don't care for basketball, but GO, LAKERS!!!!
Its unbelievable how idiotic these protesters are..We will NOT allow them to ruin our chances of winning this series. My cousin is going to the game tonight..I told them to give those progressive assclowns the finger! GO LAKERS!!!
For the first time in his career, I find myself LIKING Phil Jackson. Hmm
I have always pegged him as a Grateful Dead, 60's hippie kind of guy.
Phil Jackson is as liberal as they come, but he is a good guy and one hell of a coach!!(Yeah I’m biased) but Phil is the kinda guy that just says what he feels, no matter what his liberal buddies might say
I’d hate to see the Lakers name regurgitated as Los
Numbnuts but .. if the lake is cold.. be a shame and a jab at the old timers that carried that name and mantles of victory as the Minneapolis Lakers..
Me too. I hope the Lakers murder Los Scummos.
Here’s what I say to the protesters...
Lets say I break into your house.
Lets say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.
But I say, No! I like it here. Its better than my house. Ive made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. Ive done all the things you dont like to do. Im hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
You are Required to let me stay in your house
You are Required to feed me
You are Required to add me to your familys insurance plan
You are Required to Educate my kids
You are Required to Provide other benefits to me & to my family
My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest. (except for that breaking in part).
If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.
Its only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and Im just trying to better myself. Im a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house
And what a deal it is for me!!!
I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.
Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so that you can communicate with me.
+1. Never thought I'd ever root for the Lakers, but these idiots have changed my mind. GO LAKERS!
Relax bro, there are lakes in Los Angeles.
I see, many in this thread have come down from the mountain, and have become Laker fans.
I have a friend in New York who is a complete Communist and she emailed me to say she supported Arizona. I was stunned. If they’ve got her, they’ve got no problems.
Guess Phil's saying that looks are deceiving. Steve Nash is the hippie kind of guy.
Score a big point for Zen Buddhism!!
Wonder if Phoenix will continue to wear their “Loser Suns” shirt?
Been a Lakers fan since the days of Jerry West...good to hear that they haven’t gone Los Suns on me.
Iow, they're ticked off because Jackson had the nerve to tell the truth -- that the AZ law essentially mirrors federal law. Nothing hurts libs more than the truth.
You go, Nativo. We knew you wouldn't let the fact that he's dead right deter you.
LOL. Heck yeah: Echo Park, McArthur Park, Toluca Lake, etc.
I live in Warriors country.. can’t watch it these days.
and Sharks country.
adds a ol’ Minnesota North Stars connection to boot.
Oh he is a hard core leftist, but he isn’t afraid to go against his lib buddies and speak his mind. He is just telling it like it is..and the commie bastards are out for blood..we won’t let them ruin our chances of repeating this year
Isn’t Nativo the one with charges or a trial pending? voter fraud or such.. jerk!
Me too — had season tickets at the “Fabulous Forum” from ‘70 - ‘74. Sat right next to Chick Hearn. Gave then up right after Wilt retired and before Jabbar arrived. Haven’t rooted for the Lakers in a long time, but I hope they beat Los Suns.
Usually I hate the Lakers but I so hope they sweep this series.
You sat next to Chicky baby..that must have been an amazing experience. Have you seen the statue made in his honor right in front of Chick Hearn Court? I want to go see it. Chick was the man..a legend..
Free speech for me, but not for thee.
Never had the opportunity to see them in person..that would be cool though!!
I don't know, but it sure wouldn't come as a surprise. Los ACORNOs.
Here ya go!
Keyword Nativo Lopez
CW II ratchets up another notch everyday. GO ARIZONA, GO SUNS.
Haven’t seen the statue yet, but yeah, Chick was a legend’s legend. Best basketball announcer ever, and I’ve heard all the great ones. And it’s not even close.
Things were very relaxed at the Forum back in the early ‘70s. Kids used to walk down to right under the basket before the game and watch Wilt, West, Baylor, Goodrich, etc. warm up. ...and they’d rap with us.
I didn’t need a radio with Chick sitting so close.
Laker games just aren’t the same without Chick..hearing Joel Myers, UGH..SO annoying..Chick used to call it as he sees it. NEVER will forget his chickisms
No fair! I HATE Phil Jackson, then he goes and says something reasonable. Crap!
Gosh, I really hate the Lakers. But I hope they wipe the floor with Los Suns.
Seem CA has had a near identical law to AZ for years...except...
AZ law states if an office during a legal stop, suspect that person is an illegal the officer MAY ask about immigration status (the officer is not required to ask)
Tha CA law is the same but states if an office during a legal stop, suspect that person is an illegal the officer SHALL ask about immigration status (the officer is required to ask)... CA just does not enforce it own laws
Game 1 is over and we kicked their sorry asses..Kobe was on FIRE tonight..GO LAKERS!!
