Jackson on a possible return to NBA: If it happens, it happens. I'm not sitting around with my fingers crossed. If I get a call I will explore it, but I'm enjoying my life, man. I'm doing music now so it's all good. HoopsAddict.com

Jackson on Spurs dethroning Heat: I was happy for 'em! You know, I've got a lot of love for a lot of those guys on that team. I saw how much last year hurt those guys. So it felt good to see them win a championship and bounce back this year. And also, with everything that Tim (Duncan) did (for that franchise) it was good to see him get another championship.

In the wake of the Donald Sterling debacle last week, we knew there’d be some strong responses. The NBA and Adam Silver banned him. Some sponsorships dropped him. Magic Johnson disowned him. And even his “girlfriend” scolded him. But we didn’t expect a diss track from Stephen Jackson. The former 6-8 forward–known as Stak5–actually has some serious skills on the mic if you didn’t already know, and “America Da Beautiful (Letter To Mr. Sterling)” is a headbanger. Dime

"Is this a court or is this a cotton field?" That question has, in essence, been posed by a number of NBA luminaries in the days since Donald Sterling's racially charged remarks hit the Internet and commissioner Adam Silver subsequently banned him from the league for life. Stephen Jackson, though, is the only one who's done so in lyrical form. Jackson, a 14-year league veteran who's long dabbled in the world of hip-hop, released his latest track entitled "America Da Beautiful" on Friday, following an announcement on Twitter and Instagram.

From Travis Steel: What did you and Stephen Jackson listen to in the car? Bun B or the White Stripes? Matt Bonner: Sadly, we never rode together in a car. The need never arose. I always had my Pontiac Grand Prix, and he always had his Rolls Royce. All you need to know is that Stak5 is the man. He was a great teammate and a good friend and if he ever asks me to spit a guest verse on one of his tracks, I wouldn’t even hesitate. He rocked our charity SXSW showcase last year and was clutch like Bird… The fat lady sang. So all you Stak5 haters better not step or you’ll get served… Michael Chang. Hardwood Paroxysm

The Los Angeles Clippers are expected to waive small forward Stephen Jackson on Tuesday, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the decision had not yet been announced. The 13-year veteran was cut unexpectedly by the San Antonio Spurs in April and had an eight-month hiatus before signing with the Clippers on Dec. 10, but his contract was scheduled to become fully guaranteed as of late Tuesday and the Clippers need to clear roster spots as they continue to retool. Jackson played in nine games for the Clippers, averaging just 1.7 points (23.1% shooting) and 1.1 rebounds while playing an average of 11.9 minutes per game. USA Today Sports

Alex Kennedy: Clippers source believes Stephen Jackson will be waived soon, as @Dan Woike tweeted. Not sure why, or if LA is targeting someone else. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA

L.A. Clippers - Maalik Wayns and Stephen Jackson: Wayns's contract was due to be guaranteed on December 1st, but the date was seemingly revised after Wayns's injury that has caused him to miss the whole season to date (players on unguaranteed contracts that are hurt in the course of team related activities are paid until they are healthy again). Healthy again, Wayns now seems unlikely to make the cut, in light of the Clipper's luxury tax position. The same position factors into the decision on Jackson, and his worryingly poor play since his midseason call-up compounds the problem. The Score
