Stephen Jackson Explains Why He Choked Steve Francis (VIDEO)

“He said something crazy, one thing led to another…”

Stephen Jackson recently had a little run-in with Steve Francis. Well, maybe it was more than just a little run-in. Per DLHQ and SpursNation: “Stephen Jackson’s previous appearance on ESPN’s Highly Questionable went so well, they couldn’t resist bringing him back last week for an encore performance. This time, completely unprompted, he got to tell Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones the tale of how he ended up with his hand around the throat of former NBA All-Star Steve Francis during a recent club run-in. Jackson explained: ‘We wasn’t never cool. I don’t hang with him. I don’t call him. We’ve never been in the same circles. It was too packed for me to get to the stage. So I go in the DJ booth…and as soon as I start rapping, he jumps on the back of the DJ booth. I don’t know why he jumped up there. He bumped me two times with his midsection. I felt his belt on my neck. So the third time he does it…I turn around and I ask him to get down. He said something crazy, one thing led to another, my hand end up on his throat and next thing he in cuffs.’”

    Jax being Jax

  • thyr rodrigues

    you know how i know youre gay? you felt another mens belt on the back of your neck after being bumped twice by his “midsection”

  • Dfrance

    That show is so horrible, I can’t believe its been on TV this long. I guess they brought Bomani Jones in to try and spruce it up, but he’s just as annoying and LeBetard and “Papi”

    It’s better than First Take. Which is still on the air. So, meh, i’m not surprised.

  • LakeShow

    Francis….

    This dude was a point guard who averaged 7rpg over a 56 games… And now he is getting chocked by a near retired role player for trying to act like he is friends with him…

  • LakeShow

    You can tell Stevie is definitely on some potent drugs. Feeling himself.

  • shockexchange

    Notice how he sneaked dissed Danny Green. “A lot of guys aren’t meant to play in those minutes [pressure games] … no disrespect to Danny Green, but …” LOL.

  • Cortez Mack

    “7rpg over a 56 games”

    Only if relatively impressive rebounding translated to fighting ability…

  • LakeShow

    Can you show me 5 point guards(or 6’3″ tall players) in history that have done that? I don’t think their are 5.

    Jason Kidd, Magic, Oscar… Any others? It’s ridiculously impressive.

  • spit hot fiyah

    he did learn from one of the best

  • Horry

    If 56 games equaled even 1 season, then yeah. Plus, so many NBA stats equate to offensive and defensive schemes, rotations, player match-ups etc. Him flying in from the wing to get bricks by other teammates and a few defensive rebounds per game for 2/3 of one season is not really that unbelievable.

  • Cortez Mack

    No, I can’t.

    Which is why I said relatively impressive (historically to other guards, as you have pointed out).

    …plus that Houston team was terrible and filled with big men who could not (and/or did not) rebound.

    I was trying to figure out what his relative success at rebounding had to do with him being on the receiving end of Jackson’s choking spree?

  • Dfrance

    This is true, but I can see First Take’s debate style appealing to the average sports fan, whereas I just don’t see who the audience for LeBetards show would be.

  • Dfrance

    9 times out of 10 the term “no disrespect” comes immediately before or after something disrespectful is uttered. lol

  • shockexchange

    (Chief Keef voice) “Sneak dissseeerrr … that’s that ish I don’t like.”

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    stoners. college kids.

    *edit* (i don’t know if that market is big enough to justify a TV show for them, but that’s pretty much his audience from what i can tell).

  • pposse

    he is still reeling from his breakup with Cutino ‘the cat’ Mobley

  • LakeShow

    Okay, thanks.

  • LP @ThisisEther

    I enjoy watching this show because of the PAPI Freestyles….PAPI is the deal….

    plus, they can’t show highlights all day…might as well hear some different opinions…..but seriously….

    I think ESPN tried to give each ethnic group a show…. NUMBERS DONT LIE for A. Americans and also HIGHLY Questionable for Latin american…….

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ Nick Tha Quick

    The real question is where was Cutino Mobley when all this was going down? Why would he not be there when Steve Francis needed him?

  • LakeShow

    The point was this guy was a star in the L and a triple double guy. And now he has no cred even to a role player enough to share the stage with him.

  • bike

    He was actually choking his chicken and thought it was Steve.

  • The Philosopher

    Fat Lever…

  • LakeShow

    HOW COULD I!!!

    Of course!

  • shockexchange

    If that’s the case then Cutino has been derelict in his duties for over a decade now.

  • The Philosopher

    Micheal Ray Richardson…
    Even though, he is taller than 6’3″.

  • The Philosopher

    Alvin Robertson…

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Walt Frazier did it one season.
    .
    Gary Payton was at 6.5 for a season.

  • LakeShow

    Okay that’s enough! New regulations!

    **Since 1980

  • The Philosopher

    Damn.
    Forgot about Frazier.
    And I sit here as if I’m some “basketball historian”.
    I do call myself one, though. Lol.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    hey you remembered Fat Lever / Alvin Robertson / Michael Ray Richardson, stole almost all of my thought you wouldn’t remember this guy ammo. I consider Walt an oversight, I know you would have figured that out without looking it up if someone told you there was one left.
    .
    Jerry West had over 7 twice, if you consider him a PG.

    and

    Sidney Moncrief finished with above 6.5 twice. Never made it to 7 though.

  • Fat Lever

    You rang?

  • MUBWAR

    jerry was SG. francis also averaged 6.9 r the prior season (80 games)

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Jerry was technically a “guard” — Shooting Guard / Point Guard were not set positions in those years. They were concepts, that some teams bought into. West shared the ball tho. He was really a “hybrid” by today’s standards.

  • ddd

    the heat should sign STACK 5

  • Clos1881

    Cutino was there he was taking selfies in the bathroom when the incident occurred

  • Caboose

    That market maintains 80% of Comedy Central’s programming.

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Nobody asked you brainiac

  • Caboose

    Warren Jabali, Fat Lever, Michael Ray Richardson, Alvin Robertson, Sidney Moncrief (once), Gary Payton (once)

  • http://www.netstakeover.com/ JetSkiJohnson

    i think the show is pretty cool.

  • shockexchange

    The Heat need to sign a center.

  • Dfrance

    It was entertaining for a while cuz Papi was kinda funny. But between him yelling at me and LeBetards nervous laugh delivery I couldn’t watch anymore.

  • Dfrance

    He definitely gives off that “selfie in the club bathroom mirror” vibe lol.

  • shockexchange

    Cutino won the following award from his peers – “NBA player most likely to start his own fashion line.”

  • The Fury

    Ahhh…Fat Lever…this guy was a triple double machine before…memories.

  • LakeShow

    I don’t know what a Warren Jabali is, but get outta here with that sh*t.

    Payton never did. And actually, he was not a very impressive rebounder considering his strength and penchant for being in the low post. He was fine, but he was almost always closer to 4 rebounds than 6.

    MRR got to 6.9 a couple times like Francis, yes.

    Sidney got 6.7 a couple times.

    Thank you for helping me prove my point though. Francis is indeed one of the very, very, rare big rebounding points. (especially for his size)

    I agree. You just asked :)

  • LakeShow

    Haha, okay seriously thanks then.

  • Mars

    I really hope Houston picks Stephen Jackson up. This guy is the ultimate anomaly. Like a Ron Artest *Metta World Peace* he knows how to get into players heads but he can ball too, so he can stay on the court for quality minutes. But, do you think him and Dwight’s personalities would work, or would they clash?? Ehh?
