While there are many outspoken NBA owners, San Antonio Spurs owner Peter Holt usually prefers to let his team do the talking. But recently, Holt broke his usual silence when talking about Spurs’ longtime nemesis Phil Jackson after the team clinched their fifth championship in franchise history.
The jab came when Holt was talking about the Spurs’ first title back in 1999, and the comments that were made by Jackson calling it an asterisked season, due to a lock-out, and an asterisk NBA title.
“Phil, Phil, Phil, Phil, we all played the same amount of playoff games, didn’t we, Phil?”
As he was reminded the year the Spurs won their first title, it was the year that Phil Jackson “retired.”
Yeah, uh-huh.” Holt said. “Well, he bailed out.”
We know that this is all fun and games as the Spurs are always known to be top of the class when it comes to how an organization is run. With their fifth title now in their hands, Holt and the rest of the organization are riding this all the way through.
What are your thoughts on Holt’s comments?
