Mark Jackson reportedly the victim of an extortion plot by an ex-stripper who had nude photos of him

We all know technology is fun, but people really need to learn not to use it to send pictures of their funny business to people who they cannot trust. If you want to send dong pictures to your wife, by all means. Chances are she’s not going to share them with the entire internet. And if you go through a nasty divorce and she decides to, oh well. That’s the risk you took. But if you’re a former NBA player turned well-known analyst like Mark Jackson, it’s probably best to not act on impulse and engage in this sort of behavior.

According to The Smoking Gun, an ex-stripper named Alexis Adams was arrested this week along with her alleged accomplice, ex-convict Marcus Shaw. Adams, who is now 28, has been accused of trying to extort a six-figure payment from Jackson in return for nude photos he had sent her roughly six years ago when they had an affair.

Jackson and Adams met at a strip club in New York when Jackson was working as an announcer for the New Jersey Nets with the YES Network. Jackson said he was first approached by Shaw in April. Shaw showed Jackson a folder that he said contained the photos and a CD which he said held recording of voicemails he left Adams back when they were seeing each other. Shaw claimed he purchased a storage container for $3,500 and found the pictures and voicemails.

According to the report, Shaw claimed he wanted money to “fix his teeth and get his car out of an impound lot.” Jackson eventually gave him $5,000 but decided to contact the police when the extortionists got in touch with his wife of 22 years.

It’s a shame it took this story so long to come to light. Otherwise, people like Brett Favre, Greg Oden, and Mike Hamlin would have had a chance to learn from Jackson’s lapse in judgment.
