SALT LAKE CITY, UT  - MAY 5: Tim Duncan #21 of the San Antonio Spurs greets Stephen Jackson #3 of the San Antonio Spurs as he comes to the bench during the fourth quarter of Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs at EnergySolutions Arena on May 05, 2012 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Spurs won the game 102-90.

The San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson would like it very much if Tim Duncan did his talking to the hand. 

That's right, there is a great upheaval surrounding the usually harmonious Spurs, and it all revolves around one man's dream to enter into the rap game. 

This is far more silly than it serious, but it's extremely entertaining. 

The Basketball Jones spotted a report from the San Antonio Express about Duncan coming to Captain Jack with a request to spit some rhymes on his next album. 

The answer was no—a total and harsh negatory:

"I asked (Stephen Jackson) if I could rap a little on his album, and he told me no, straight out. I was very offended. He’s never even heard me rap. He doesn’t know what I could do."


I will go ahead and say Duncan was having a little fun with this and wasn't really all that beat up. He is in the final moments of a Hall of Fame career and will go down as one of the greatest big men of all time. 

I don't think he really cares about being on some NBA hip-hop album. Then again, I am kind of mad he wasn't invited. 

As we reported earlier in the week, Kevin Durant made a cameo on one of Jackson's songs, "Lonely at the Top."

While Durant proved capable, we would love to hear the one man who has been pegged as an absolute square for his entire NBA career try out some rhyme. 

Duncan's a player who shows as much personality as a cardboard cutout of himself on most nights, so I would love to hear him break down and annihilate a freestyle right in Jackson's face. 

Please, make this happen. 

As for Stephen Jackson, you are just a mad-rapping bully, and you made poor Timmy sad.
