A couple weeks ago, Phil Jackson stirred up some controversy after calling LeBron James’ entourage a ‘posse’. That term comes off with such negative annotation, which angered LeBron and his business partner, Maverick Carter.

For the first time since the quote, Jackson has finally decided to address the issue on CBS Sports Network’s We Need To Talk.

“That’s a topic I’m not going to discuss because, one, we’re not supposed to discuss other team’s players in this position that I have here,” Jackson said. “So I violated one of the tenets of our thing. And the obvious thing is, the word itself carries connotation. And I just don’t understand that part of it, the word. So I guess word choice could be something I could regret. But yeah, talking about other teams players, that’s out of the box.”

Jackson was then asked if there are any plans to speak with LeBron to clear the air.

“No, it’s water under the bridge,” Jackson said. “I don’t think there was anybody hurt or harmed in this situation. I think LeBron’s friend obviously had an issue with it. So we just let it go. It’s not enough to talk about it.”

Well, there you have it, folks. Let’s finally put this issue to rest.
