George Karl's agent lobbied for Kings broadcaster to be fired
Now that George Karl has somehow ducked his dismissal, his camp has moved onto the offensive.
"It’s my opinion that he should be fired or suspended," LeGarie said. "(There’s) no place for that in a legitimate organization."
Jackson said that it would be fine if Karl left the team following the Kings' 128-119 loss to the Brooklyn Nets last week. "There ain’t nothing wrong with it. It’s just the business," Jackson seethed.
It wasn't just Jackson publicly calling for Karl's head that has LeGarie incensed. Jackson also maintains strong ties to the Kings' brain trust in Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic. The three were teammates on the Kings from 2000-04.
"They condition their audience, which ultimately influences the management," LeGarie complained.
"It's way more transparent when you know the cast of characters involved and way more obvious then," LeGarie said of Jackson's connections. "Except to the fans who take what they say as gospel."
