Those who stuck around for the last couple minutes of Friday night’s non-game between the Lakers and the Thunder probably didn’t think much of the little scuffle involving Serge Ibaka and the artist formerly known as Ron Artest.  There wasn’t much to it, really… the two players essentially locked themselves into a bear hug and exchanged a few pleasantries… and that was it.  Double techs were assessed and there was no further drama.  Or so I thought. Apparently, Stephen Jackson was watching.  And he was on Twitter.  Never one to hold his tongue (or his fingers, I guess?), Jack took to the keyboard and hammered out the following tweets.  They’ve since been deleted, but Project Spurs was on the ball and has provided a transcription… Somebody tell serg Abaka. He aint bout dis life. Next time he run up on me im goin in his mouth. That’s a promise. He doin 2 much. — Stephen Jackson (@DaTrillStak5) December 8, 2012 FYI my ibaka comment had nothin to do with Ron Artest. Last 2 times we played he ran up on me and i told him in the game next time u run up on me im going in ya mouth. Im speaking for myself. For u all who wanna jump to conclusions. — Stephen Jackson (@DaTrillStak5) December 8, 2012 Interesting.  The Spurs will visit the Thunder on December 17th, and yes, Jackson is expected to be back by then.  He’s currently out with a broken right pinkie finger, so maybe expect him to “go in [Ibaka's] mouth” with the left. In a related story, Jackson recently told ESPN Magazine he has no regrets about fighting with fans in Malice At The Palace. David Stern just can’t get enough of the San Antonio Spurs right now.
