A fractured finger has been keeping Stephen Jackson from playing for the Spurs the past few weeks, but it isn’t keeping him from tweeting. Depending on how you view it, the San Antonio swingman issued either a threat to Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka, or cracked a joke about the forward’s tendency to get involved in fights with some of the league’s more notable tough guys. 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 It isn’t clear what led to Jackson’s tweet, but we have a few ideas. Jackson beefed with Ibaka during the Western Conference Finals last season. That probably made Jackson realize that Ibaka doesn’t back down from anyone. He also got a technical at the beginning of this season for trading trash talk with Ibaka. Then toward the end of Friday’s Thunder-Lakers game, Ibaka got into it with noted crazy man Metta World Peace. Double-technicals were handed out on the play and, as you could tell in the video, Ibaka was ready to fight Metta. Jackson probably was watching the game and his tweet was a response to the fight. He likely isn’t dumb enough to threaten another player over Twitter knowing that the league fines players for anything over Twitter. This was probably just his way of saying Ibaka better watch out who he messes with. I actually think it’s pretty cool that Ibaka stands tough as OKC’s enforcer. H/T Nate Jones
