The reverse alley-oop by J.R. Smith wasn't the only thing worth pointing out in the Spurs loss to the Knicks last night.  Spurs forward Stephen Jackson had an unfortunate incident with a waitress during the game.  And no it was not sexual.  He was taking a jump shot in the corner when he took a step back and his ankle twisted on a waitresses foot.  Bad luck huh???  The funniest part of the whole thing is that the waitress was serving the NYC Mayor, Mike Bloomberg.  It's like something out of a movie.  Check out the video below. Jackson finished the game with only 3 total minutes, and 0 points.  THANKS MAYOR!!! Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
