I purposely used this picture above from last year’s NBA all-star game to show how much my boy Westbrook gets up!! He is only 6’3 (probably shorter) and as you can see he is dunking right between Lebron and Dwight Howard during last year’s game. His feet are basically at their waist! I would love to see him in the dunk contest. The dunk contest has been hit or miss in recent years. Yes Blake Griffin winning a couple years ago was exciting and entertaining, but some years it is very boring. Having a star like Westbrook bring attention to it again, especially with his athletic ability would be fun. Seeing the little guys of the NBA fly through the air always looks better.
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.
