Stephen Jackson thanks fans, leaves parting shot for a player


The NBA and San Antonio Spurs fandom were stunned when news came out that the Spurs waived forward Stephen Jackson. Many were left scratching their heads at the move while finding out that apparently there was a rift between Jackson and coach Gregg Popovich regarding his role and playing time for some time.

In the end, Jackson is no longer with the team but before closing this chapter in his NBA career, he sent a message via Instagram to his fans while calling out an anonymous player who Jackson says isn't better than him. I wonder who it could be?

Jackson was a fan favorite who will be missed. His fiery side, toughness on the court, "tell it as it is" attitude and edge he gave the team will be sorely missed. However, if the reports are true that he clashed with Popovich, then his days were numbered.

As for this player he is referring to in his message, one can only wonder if someone on the team had some issues with Jackson.

So what do you think Spurs fans about Jackson no longer with the team? Leave us your thoughts.
