Phil Jackson’s “Brokeback” remark starts yet another NBA trend


Phil Jackson was recently quoted after a loss as saying, "We call this a Brokeback Mountain game, because there’s so much penetration and kickouts.  It was one of those games." 

As is with anything else in the NBA – cornrows, tattoos, crime, weed – these things have a tendency to catch on and catch on quickly.  Here’s what other people are already saying:

"This game was like Edward Penishands because we got fucked ten different ways." — Scott Skiles

"We call this a Striptease game, because it sounds like it should be so good, but you just leave pissed off." — Some Hawks coach

"This was one of those Caligula games, everyone got screwed." — George Karl

"This was just like a movie on Skinemax:  So many great unknown bodies, yet no penetration." — Don Nelson

"This situation is just like The Accused." — Isiah Thomas

"Last night was one of those Apocalypse Now games; everyone was like ‘Why are we even here?’" — Several players on the Bobcats

"Last night’s game was like seeing Freddy Got Fingered in the theater.  We were fucked the second we walked in the door." — Damon Jones

"The refs must’ve thought this was a Peter North flick, cause we all got hosed."
— Austin Croshere

"The feeling I had going into last night’s game was similar to the feeling I had coming out of Caddyshack 2.  I was like, why the hell did we make so many freakin’ personnel changes?" — Pat Riley

    Great post. All you needed was a mention of Ishtar, what a bust that was.
