San Antonio Spurs castoff Stephen Jackson, made an appearance on ESPN’s First Take today and talked about his falling out with his former team, the NBA Finals. and he even dropped a freestyle for the crew.
When asked if he thought the Spurs could win the series, Jackson said he thought they could because in his opinion, LeBron and Dwyane Wade are scared to shoot the ball.
Lost in all the hoopla following the blowout loss on Tuesday, is the fact the Lebron and D Wade look like tentative shooters and until they start knocking down some outside shots, the most effective part of their game which is driving to the hoop will be nullified by the Spurs’ compact defense.

Stephen Jackson was cut by the San Antonio Spurs shortly before the regular season ended. At 35 he likely still has a few good seasons left, but there is not telling yet if someone is going to pick him up. Whether you like him or not the man gives a great interview, and he did just that on Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard.
His honesty is refreshing and definitely entertaining...

Well this video from the NBA is right up your alley: Wade's Game 4 highlight reel in super-slo motion.
SAN ANTONIO Dwyane Wade declared 2 years ago he no longer wanted to be known as "Flash, the nickname teammate Shaquille ONeal gave the high flyer before the Miami Heats 2006 title run.
For least one night, though, Wade said people can go back to calling him that. Not as if he could stop anybody even if he wanted.
Miami forward LeBron James called the guard by the nickname...
The focus prior to last night’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals was LeBron James. That is usually the case for the Miami Heat whenever they have a must win game in the playoffs. LeBron had been unable to get going offensively and the debate was whether or not James would be able to go off and score 35+ on the Spurs last night. I didn’t think James could do it as it looked like the...
Amirite? Apparently it helped him play well, do good on you D-Wade.

If I didn’t know any better I swore I saw Dwyane Wade steal the ball, go coast to coast and dunk the ball in game 5 of the NBA Championship. If I’m not mistaken, Dwyane Wade scored 32 points and looked like the 2006 MVP for the first time in the 2013 playoffs. Has this guy been playing possum for the past month or so. Do we need to check his urine after...

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...
Dwyane Wade has struggled mightily in the postseason playing through an injured knee, averaging 14.2 points, he broke through Thursday night and delivered a performance - 32 points, six assists, four rebounds and six steals – reminiscent of his days as “Flash,” a “greatest in the universe” superhero nickname given to him by former teammate Shaquille O’Neal prior to the...
It was the Dwyane Wade of old, not the old Dwyane Wade, who showed
up in San Antonio when Miami needed him most.
Dwyane Wade was in 2006 form as the Miami Heat crashed the Spurs party last night in Game 4 in San Antonio. Meanwhile, back in Miami, the deck at a waterfront sports crashed into the water below.

Los Angles Lakers forward Metta World Peace says he’s a big fan of Miami Heat star LeBron James. But he thinks the reigning MVP needs to step it up in the NBA Finals. “Mentally, the Spurs are strongest right now,” World Peace told ESPNLosAngeles.com prior to the Heat’s 113-77 loss to
Danny Green certainly isn’t cocky, which is surprising, given his lights-out shooting thus far in the NBA Finals.
Still, the Spurs guard, who shrugged after Game 3 that his team’s success in reining in LeBron James has as much to do with James “stopping himself” as with anything the Spurs have done, stayed on the humble train on Thursday. Green was asked about his (and his...
SAN ANTONIO What happened: Miamis Big Three are back.
At least they were Thursday night
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh had their best combined outing in awhile. It came when the Heat were in dire need of a victory, and they got one at the AT&T Center. The 109-93 triumph tied the NBA Finals 2-2.
