Stephen Jackson is evidently not a fan of Serge Ibaka’s attitude and does not believe that the man from Congo is “about that life”.
During Friday’s contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and Oklahoma City Thunder on ESPN, Metta World Peace and Serge Ibaka got tangled up underneath the basket and the two exchanged words with each other.
We already know that these two aren’t the best of friends, so this is not a big surprise. The play was simply called a double technical – the right call – and no one overreacted.
Clearly, Captain Jack was watching this game based on his twitter reaction – he promises to go in “Abaka’s mouth” (a better expression is in order here) if the big man walks up on him again. This, of course, means Jackson must have experienced one of Ibaka’s temper tantrums in the past.
Hopefully, Jackson won’t make good of his words in regards to this situation – he has already done enough damage to the image of the NBA with his fighting ways – but his irritation towards Ibaka is somewhat understandable.
