Lakers' Phil Jackson takes another shot at city of San Antonio

Phil Over the years, Lakers Coach Phil Jackson has made his share of disparaging comments about the city of San Antonio and one of its historical landmarks, the River Walk.

Before Tuesday night's game between the Lakers and Spurs, Jackson was asked if he had run out of things to do while visiting San Antonio.

"I took a walk on the beautiful River Walk last night. There’s just some puddles here and there," Jackson said. "This morning, the ducks were still out playing in the puddles, so it was kind of quaint. I understand they clean it up this time of the year, get in there and dredge it a little bit. There wasn’t much beauty in San Antonio this trip."

Indeed, the River Walk was drained and being cleaned up like it is once a year.
