(Sports) Spurs Stephen Jackson Not Playing With Thunder Serge Ibaka

Spurs forward Stephen Jackson has a reputation that precedes him; from his showdown at the Palace with the Pistons, a gun incident outside an Indianapolis strip club and his rumored gang affiliation, he’s not exactly someone you want to mess with.  His temper got the best of him last night when he threatened Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka.  Read more after the jump.

Last night during the Thunder’s game against the Lakers Ibaka got into a small scuffle with Lakers forward Ron Artest.   That might’ve triggered this tweet from Jackson who also had an incident with Ibaka earlier this year.  ”Ibaka was running his mouth a little too much. I will never get disrespected by nobody. I’m going to go out a man,”said Jackson after the scuffle.  Last night he threatened Ibaka and also threw in a little jab.  Check the tweets in the gallery.

DeSean Jackson isn’t happy with the fact that the media has given his words their plain meaning, as he said on Twitter in the wake of his interview with ESPN in which he admitted that he was holding back to protect himself last season.

“I let it get to me, even though I tried not to let it,” Jackson said Monday, in an interview with Lisa Salters. “I was trying to protect myself from getting hurt — now I’m just giving it all.”
