*The “Queens of the Club” is a web series that offers an inside look at the lives of two of Houston’s biggest strippers and some of the city’s hottest strip clubs.
Two women, who go by Jhonni Blaze and HtownCiara, are stars of the series. But what many may be interested in is former San Antonio Spur Stephen Jackson and former NBA point guard Steve Francis appeared in a episode back in August.
The two got into a heated exchange, resulting in the Jackson choking out Francis.
Apparently Jackson initiated things by taking over the mic from Francis and it ended with Francis being taken away by police in handcuffs.
You can check out all of the commotion in the video below, beginning at the 25:38 mark.
*Good grief, are we talkin’ the NBA or the National Football League.
Well, the way some players (Stephen Jackson, Serge Ibaka) in the National Basketball Association are playing and reacting, they might wanna consider the NFL.
Specifically, Jackson of the San Antonio Spurs was fined $25,000 by the NBA Sunday for a “hostile statement” he sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Ibaka over Twitter.
Ibaka got tangled up with Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers during a game on Friday, which earned both players technical fouls. Jackson took to Twitter to defend World Peace, a friend and former teammate.
“Somebody tel serg Abaka. He aint bout dis life. Next time he run up on me im goin in his mouth. That’s a promise. He doin 2 much,” he tweeted.
Jackson later deleted the message and apologized for his remark.
“I apologize to Serge Ibaka, the NBA, and to all my fans for the comments I made,” Jackson tweeted. “It was unprofessional and childish. I’m not a thug just a man who speaks his mind. It was not appropriate. I do apologize. Only a man can admit when he’s wrong.”

*The official cast for the LA spinoff of VH1’s “Basketball Wives” has been announced.
Premiering Aug. 29, the new installment will follow actual “wives,” unlike much of the Miami-based original.
The new cast features Kimsha Artest, wife of Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest; Jackie Christie, wife of Doug Christie, former player for the Los Angeles Clippers; and Imani Showalter, ex-fiancée of Charlotte Bobcats’ Stephen Jackson.
Also former Miami cast member Gloria Govan, fiancée of Laker Matt Barnes, will star in the LA series, alongside her sister Laura Govan.
*The wife of Charlotte Bobcats player Stephen Jackson was held at gunpoint Wednesday by three masked men who broke into the house, locked her in the bathroom and made off with valuables.
Jackson was in Texas for a basketball camp and his wife was not injured, multiple media organizations reported.
The home invasion robbery took place just after 2:45 a.m. at the south Charlotte home, located in a gated community off Carmel Road, according to the Observer. Officers have not said why they believe their home was targeted, and no one has been charged.
The $1.7 million tan stucco home with three garages is owned by former Bobcats guard Jason Richardson, who was traded to the Phoenix Suns during the 2008-09 season.
About a year later, the Bobcats acquired Jackson, a talented shooting guard who helped lead the team to its first playoff appearance last season.
