Photo Credit: thesource.com/AP It’s becoming more and more apparent why Stephen Jackson was released by the Spurs; mainly because he’s officially lost his mind. In an interview on ESPN’s Highly Questionable, Jackson reminisces about the infamous Malace at the Palace in Detroit involving he and the artist formerly known as Ron Artest. Jackson better be retiring from the league, because if David Stern gets a hold of this interview, a suspension is definitely coming his way. Here is what Jackson has to say, courtesy of BleacherReport: The host wants Jackson to admit he enjoyed hitting fans, which led to Jackson replying, “All the racial slurs I done heard. All the things I heard about my mom, and my basketball game and my kids, all this. It felt good to punch a fan one time.” Jackson goes on to say he regrets it, but only because he lost three million dollars because of it. As a regular watcher of this show, there is a certain laidback atmosphere to the interviews, and both Le Betard and Jones basically bait athletes into saying something controversial, which is their jobs. Most athletes are aware of this, and play it off, but Stephen Jackson…well… he is not. That’s okay though, because at least he got his money, right? Here is a link to the full Jackson interview: By: Frank Santos- Pass the Pill Manager   The post Stephen Jackson on Malace at the Palace: ‘It felt good to punch a fan’ appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.

NBA Finals Game 4 - sorry San Antonio, it's over

If you read my last post where I said San Antonio had absolutely ZERO chance at beating the Heat for the title, you might be wondering how I feel after a game three where the Spurs mopped the floor with every Heat player besides for Mike Miller (ironically, the only one that has a mop on his head).

NBA Finals: This is a weird series

It started off as we thought it might.  Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are key in a San Antonio Spurs win while LeBron James had a triple double in a Game 1 that could've gone either way.  Then things got weird.  First the Spurs got crushed by the Miami Heat, which isn't too weird, but what was weird is that the blowout wasn't a part of a "LeBron game" or...

Spurs rout unrecognizable Heat

Game Two was the kind of game good teams have nightmares about. The defense and principals of a team break down and it leads to an onslaught of highlights and talk that makes a player and a team doubt itself. Especially when the stakes are so high. The only thing a team can do to fight all this off is to respond the next time out. San Antonio HAD to respond the next time out and...
