    LeBron James isn’t too pleased with New York Knicks President Phil Jackson, who referred to James’ group of friends as his “posse.”

    James said that he lost respect for Jackson over the comments, explaining, “It just sucks that now at this point having one of the biggest businesses you can have both on and off the floor, having a certified agent in Rich Paul, having a certified business partner in Maverick Carter, that’s done so many great business [deals], that the title for young African-Americans is the word ‘posse.'”

    He then added, “For me, we see the success that we have, but then there is always someone that lets you know still how far we still have to go as African-Americans.”
