Stephen Jackson had to leave Thursday’s Spurs-Knicks game at Madison Square Garden after spraining his ankle falling on a waitress who was serving Mayor Bloomberg. We’re not even joking.

The injury occurred late in the first quarter of the game after Jackson attempted a 3-point shot from the corner. As Jackson was backing up while tracking his shot, he stumbled over a waitress who was crouched down to serve Bloomberg.

Adding insult to literal injury, Jackson missed the shot. He was 0-for-2 in his three minutes of action before leaving the game with a sprained right ankle.

Surprisingly, this sort of thing happens during NBA games more than you would think.

  • Well...the obvious joke is that the Mayor was not getting a large soft drink!
  • I guess you could say Stephen fell for the waitress.
  • Leave it to Bloomberg the blooming idiot to screw something else up. Just another case of New Yorkers not being the brightest people in the country electing this moron to anything including a dog catcher. Come on New York you can do better than Blooming Idiot.
  • Get the people away from the edge of the courts. There should be a minimum of 4 - 5' distance away from the out of bounds. This includes camera personnel.
  • Too bad Jackson didn't take out the waitress and mayor Bloomberg!!!!
