INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- LeBron James respected Phil Jacksons unmatched coaching accomplishments. That affection has vanished.Ive got nothing for him, James said Tuesday.James fired back at the 11-time coaching champion and current New York Knicks president for using the word posse in a recent interview to describe the NBA megastars business associates. James said he lost all respect for Jackson and his comments underline a larger societal issue for young African-Americans trying to succeed in business.In the interview, Jackson, 71, said James has always demanded preferential treatment and called his departure from Miami as a free agent a slap in the face to the Heat organization. Jackson recalled a time when James asked for the team to stay over in Cleveland while on a road trip, a request that put coach Erik Spoelstra in a bind.You cant hold up the whole team because you and your mom and your posse want to spend an extra night in Cleveland, Jackson said in the ESPN interview .The word posse struck a chord with James, who has surrounded himself with childhood friends during his career.Jacksons language also touched a flash point at a time of heightened racial tension in the country.We see the success that we have, but then there is always someone that lets you know how far we still have to go as African-Americans, James said Tuesday following the Cavaliers morning shootaround. I dont believe that Phil Jackson would have used that term if he was doing business with someone else and working with another team or if he was working with anybody in sports that was owning a team that wasnt African-American and had a group of guys around them that didnt agree with what they did.I dont think he would have called them a posse. But it just shows how far we have to go. But it wont stop us from doing what we need to do as a group. Ive put together a great team, Ive empowered some guys since I was a kid and weve all grown together and become one of the people that try to model after, so were not going to let Phil Jacksons comments stop us from doing what we need to do. It just gives us extra motivation. But its still sad, though, to see that people at the top always want to try to put guys in power down.James was offended by Jacksons flippant use of a term many find degrading.If you go and read the definition of what the word `posse is, its not what Ive built over my career, James said. Its not what I stand for. Its not what my family stands for.Cavs coach Tyronn Lue played for Jackson and said he doesnt recall him ever being racially insensitive. Lue also has no intention of brokering any communication between his former coach and star player, and said James has never asked for any special treatment.We treat everyone the same around here, Lue said.Along with close friends Maverick Carter, Rich Paul and Randy Mims, James has built a sports business empire. Among the groups most prominent successes are landing James a lifetime contract with Nike worth nearly $1 billion and launching a film and TV production company that has partnered with Warner Bros.Carter handles James business affairs while Paul serves as his agent -- and for several other top players -- and Mims works with the Cavs. They formed LRMR marketing shortly after James turned pro, and the 31-year-old three-time champion was criticized for surrounding himself with friends.Ive tried to put my guys in position to where they can walk in a meeting and go places and they dont need me because they got to a point where theyve done their homework, James said. Theyve studied on what they want to do and they can hold a meeting without me because of the respect that they have and the knowledge they have. Thats just 12 years of hard work and dedication that we put to each other. I know Phils in a position of power in our sport, but to criticize me and my guys over that is nonsense.The Cavs play the Knicks on Dec. 7 in Madison Square Garden, a game surely to be intensified by the Jackson-James drama. James seemed hurt someone of Jacksons stature would try to demean him.It seems like when my name is involved with other people thats helped build the game, its like, `How can we criticize what he does on and off the floor? instead of trying to help me, he said.James has been outspoken on social issues and doesnt intend to stop.My whole goal is while I have this platform and this muscle that I have right now is how can I better the youth that looks at me every single day and sees what I do and sees what I say and sees the way I walk and talk and what I wear and use it as a positive way to get out of the situation theyre in, he said. Im not going to be that guy that ever downplays somebody or tries to knock someone off just to feel better about myself. Superstar Bianche e Nere .

Superstar Bianche e Grigie . By having more great seasons. Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. Superstar Bianche e Verdi . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Michigan hasnt been tested and has jumped to No. 4 in the rankings.And it doesnt appear the Wolverines will face much of a test in their third game either.Michigan (2-0) hosts Colorado on Saturday in a nonconference affair televised by the Big Ten Network. While the Buffaloes are 2-0 and have outscored their opponents 100-14, the victories are against Colorado State and Idaho State.Colorado also has dropped 22 consecutive matchups against ranked opponents.Then again, the Wolverines played Hawaii and Central Florida while winning their first two games by a cumulative 114-17. And coach Jim Harbaugh agreed that his team has a lot to work on after there were some uneven moments during last Saturdays 37-point victory over Central Florida.Im very excited as a coach that when you win a game 51-14, you still have things to go in and coach and you feel like you can improve your play on, Harbaugh said at a press conference. Theres probably no better feeling as a coach than to start the week that way.It makes me very optimistic that there are ways we can improve. Theres things we can fix. Im very confident with the coaches and players we have that well do that. It makes you feel like you can get better. Im always happy about that, to be in that position.The contest marks only the fifth time the two schools have met. Michigan holds a 3-1 series edge but Colorados victory came in one of the most famous endings in college football history.The 1994 meeting culminated with Kordell Stewart throwing a 64-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass to Michael Westbrook with no time remaining for a stunning 27-26 victory.The current Buffaloes know the history but are more concerned about leaving their own mark.Its just another team and were going to go play our game, but Im definitely excited to play Michigan, junior receiver Devin Ross said. I cant lie about that.We never expect the game to always go our way -- theyre going to have their ups and downs so were ready for that. Theyre going to go in there hungry because theyre one of the top teams in the nation, so were going to go in thhere and stick with our game plan and keep executing.ddddddddddddolorado leads the nation in total defense (160.5 yards per game) and also possesses a hot quarterback in senior Sefo Liufau, who is completely healed from a foot injury suffered last November. Liufau has completed 74.5 percent of his passes for 522 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions.Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight has been even better and his seven passing touchdowns tie John Navarre (2000) for most by a Michigan quarterback in the first two games of the season. Speight has completed 70 percent of his passes to help the Wolverines top 50 points in consecutive games for the first time since 1992.He takes control of the huddle and also does a good job of reading the defenses, senior receiver Amara Darboh said. He knows where to go and doesnt hesitate.Darboh had five catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Central Florida. Darboh and senior tight end Jake Butt share the team lead with three scoring receptions.The Wolverines defense played without senior All-American cornerback Jourdan Lewis in each of the first two games due to two different mysterious injuries.The current one is reportedly related to his back and Harbaugh said he prefers taking the cautious approach.Something different came up, a muscle strain in a different location, Harbaugh said. Well see (if he plays), but Im not going to take any chances with it.Michigan senior defensive end Taco Charlton (ankle) could return after a one-game absence. Sophomore defensive tackle Brian Mone (knee) will sit out his second consecutive game.Colorado hopes to have junior running back Michael Adkins II available for the first time this season. He suffered a season-ending hamstring injury early last season and his recovery has contained some setbacks.Michael was a little bit better at the beginning of (last week), and hopefully hell be ready to go, Buffaloes coach Mike MacIntyre said.
