Mark Cuban calls Phil Jackson Jeanie Buss’ “boy toy;” Phil’s good with that.

Mark Cuban and Phil Jackson sure do enjoy a little verbal sparing with each other.

The latest round started out seemingly innocently Sunday night, when Phil Jackson tried to say he thought the loss of Caron Butler would be a big blow to the Mavericks. Butler — who played for the Lakers but was traded for Kwame Brown, who was eventually traded for Pau Gasol — still has friends and supporters within the Lakers organization.

When asked what he thought of Jackson’s comment, Mark Cuban took the chance for a little jab, as reported by ESPN Dallas:

“I love that Jeanie Buss’ boy-toy had something to say about us,” Cuban said while sweating on the stair-stepping machine in the Mavs’ workout room. “I don’t know if it was his thought or Jeanie’s thought, but it’s nice to know that she lets him speak in public about other teams.”

Boy toy? Jackson laughed and said he was good with that.

“I consider myself an old man, that I’m a boy toy, that’s great.”

He also didn’t back off his sentiment, saying that Dallas has been playing very well but this will be a blow to them and it will be hard for Shawn Marion to fill those shoes.

“Shawn’s a fine player but it’s not Caron Butler.”

    Damn straight the Zen is all about being a boy toy. Even at the ripe age of 65, Phillip is still pulling in hot tail and winning championships. Play on playa.

    Mark I would just shut up before he crushes you with a bag full of his CHAMPIONSHIP rings. Like a little boy talking smack to a grown man. Mark thinks he’s on the team or something, NBA superstar wanna be. No talent hack owner who can’t buy his way out of a paper sack. The same paper sack that Phil eats his lunch out of and pops every time they meet. I wouldn’t talk about phils love life, have you ever seen Mark with a female in his life? Me either wonder if it’s a don’t ask don’t tell policy there in Doll-ass.
