This article reads Phil Jackson as saying,

"We get back at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning (on Dec.23),(then) practice on the 24th. It's almost unfair after four games in five days (on the road). And then we're playing an afternoon game, which prohibits almost any kind of a shootaround."

Compare that to another LA paper that quotes Jackson this way:

"We get back at 2 o'clock or 3 o'clock in the morning, and to have practice on the 24th is almost unfair after four games in five days."

What's the difference?

Well, for starters, the Lakers don't get back at 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning on the 23rd; they'll be in New Orleans getting ready for the game there on the 23rd. Second, Jackson will most likely not schedule practice on the 24th. And most importantly, by improperly punctuating the 'unfair' language of Jackson's quote, this article makes it seem like the game against Boston is what's unfair when Jackson was actually saying that for him to schedule practice on the 24th is what would be unfair, on his part.

There's a huge difference - the point of Jackson's statement was that he most likely will not schedule practice on the 24th, not some sort of slight at the NBA schedule-makers.
