Stephen Jackson has a ‘basketball beef’ with Tony Parker

Stephen Jackson

Stephen Jackson was teammates with Tony Parker on the San Antonio Spurs for four seasons over two separate stints. Jackson has suggested in the past that he has issues with Parker, and he elaborated on these issues recently.

The Los Angeles Times’ Arash Markazi hung out with Jackson and Matt Barnes on the set of their new show “All the Smoke” for a column published on Thursday. In the column, Markazi included comments from Jackson about the former Spurs forward’s issues with Parker.

“I don’t have a reason to talk to Tony Parker and I don’t want to talk to Tony Parker,” Jackson said, via Markazi. “My beef with Tony Parker is a basketball beef. I didn’t like the teammate he was. Tony would look me off on purpose. I don’t want to disrespect him as a man but I had a problem with him on the court.”

Jackson has taken an aggressive stance towards Parker in the past. Last year he ripped Parker over the guard’s comments about Kawhi Leonard’s quad injury.

Jackson has also said in the past that he’s the only one with the balls to call out Parker for being a selfish player.

Both players are now retired. Parker is a legend in San Antonio, and Jackson is too, to a lesser extent. Jackson clearly has issues with Parker to this day.
