When he isn't in the studio cutting a new single for his rap album, San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson is in the gym and getting a good sweat as he prepares for the upcoming NBA season.
Jackson, who is in his home state of Texas for his basketball camp, took in some time to train with former Spur T.J. Ford in order to be sure S-Jax is good to go come training camp next month.
Ford, who doesn't let up on Jackson, puts him through some shooting drills, and both talk about their bond that extends since they were young.
Check out Jackson and Ford put in some tough work to the point Jackson's heart rate spikes to 178 bpm, take 234 shots, and making 153 shots. Ford also dispells the notion Jackson is a bad guy off the court, while Jackson admits he isn't a favorite among NBA refs, Ford gets Jackson used to getting hits without the benefit of the foul call, and much more.
To see the trailer of Jackson's "Training Days" video, hit the jump.

The Spurs Stephen Jackson has some skills as hybrid guard/forward but can he light up the Billboard charts the same way that he shoots up the court? You be the judge as here is the video for his single ” Fallout.”

The offseason is usually when NBA players kick back, travel, and enjoy the down time before reporting to camp and taking on the rigors of another NBA season.
It's a time for them to unwind, relax and let their bodies heal but not for Spurs' Stephen Jackson.
Jackson has been spending his time in Texas hosting his own basketball camp for kids but he recently took...
San Antonio Spurs guard Nando De Colo will be living the NBA rookie life heading into next season but that doesn't mean he is going to be intimidated by playing on basketball's biggest stage.
In an interview with French site Nordeclair, De Colo exclaimed how much he is happy to be living his NBA dream and mentioned he once had a Scottie Pippen poster as a kid.
There were whispers about it during the Western Conference Finals but the talk about San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard's development and ceiling began in earnest leading up to NBA Summer League and during it. It was only two games and against lesser opponents, but Leonard showed real promise as a primary or secondary scorer. Leonard's development isn't just...
Given that I don’t speak French and do not want to provide the opportunity for this nightmare fuel of a video to gain any stronger of a hold upon my psyche, I haven’t the foggiest of a clue what in the heck is going on in this video, nor have I thought much thought to [...]
When San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker isn't playing 82 regular season games and several playoff games, he is just as busy in the offseason.
After the Spurs lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, Parker didn't have much time before he was in France training for the Olympics and playing in friendlies. He's been just as busy after the...
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is certainly loved by the entire country of France so it shouldn't come as a huge surprise he is a target of satires on French TV.
Take this for example of puppet TP hitting the golf course and taking a swing. However, unlike the real Parker, this puppet isn't as coordinated like an finely tuned athlete and fails miserably.
San Antonio Spurs' Cory Joseph may be establishing himself as an NBA player in the Alamo City but he doesn't forget where he came from.
Joseph, a native Canadian, recently took a walk down memory lane to where he learned how to play the game. Check out the video of Cory remembering his basketball roots including his father talking about his son and how basketball helped...
For NBA players, the offseason is a brief couple of months where they get to relax, spend time with family and friends and enjoy life a little bit before the grueling NBA schedule takes it all away. For international players, it gets a bit trickier. Even with the time off, it’s still quite a challenge to the schedule to hop on a plane and travel halfway across the world.
The biggest need for the San Antonio Spurs is size. Aside from Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter, the Spurs depth at big men is scarce with an undersized DeJuan Blair (if the team doesn't trade him) and a one-dimensional player like Matt Bonner.
And with the team striking out in available big men in the offseason (Chris Kaman and Andray Blatche), the Spurs are set to work...
According to Yahoo! Sports, the San Antonio Spurs worked out Tracy McGrady who is currently seeking a guaranteed contract which he won't get with the Spurs.

Next year when the 2013 FIBA Eurobasket kicks off, San Antonio Spurs draftee Davis Bertans and his country of Latvia may get the chance to face some current Spurs should they decide to dress for Les Bleus next summer.
Bertans and Latvia defeated Romania 85-77 to secure a place for the 2013 Eurobasket on Tuesday as Bertans finished the game with 11 points on 3-of-9 shooting...
We told you Monday Anthony Davis, Greivis Vasquez and maybe James Harden were all in San Antonio for some reason. We then listed some silly reasons why we thought they'd be in San Antonio. We also suggested that the most logical reason that Unibrow and others were in town was for some sort of workout with members of the San Antonio Spurs. Turns out that's exactly...
