Video: Stephen Jackson explains why he choked Steve Francis in club altercation

Monday September 16th, 2013

For Stephen Jackson's explanation of the incident with Steve Francis, skip to the 2:20 mark.

Former Spur and longtime NBA journeyman Stephen Jackson is a man of incredible candor, fully stocked with anthologies' worth of bizarre stories. That made him a perfect guest for ESPN's Highly Questionable, a show that has a nice track record in getting outspoken NBA players to share details of their more entertaining dust-ups.

In this particular spot, hosts Dan Le Batard and Bomani Jones lead Jackson down a storytelling path that includes the fun that comes in intimidating his daughters' would-be boyfriends; Jackson's relationship with his mom; reliving his mistakes while watching the Spurs in the NBA Finals; Jackson's romantic overtures; and, oh -- the tale of how his hands "ended up on" the throat of former NBA player Steve Francis during a recent club appearance.
