"Jackson was fined for what the league determined was an obscenity toward a fan in the third quarter of Monday afternoon's 95-91 victory over the New Orleans Hornets.
"Because of the incident in Detroit, they want to hit people with fines without finding out what's going on. That's crazy. I won't tolerate it. I've got horses to feed."
At that line, his teammates in the locker room exploded in laughter. Jackson, in fact, does own horses, leading reporters to ask roughly what it does take to feed them.
"That's 6 months of horse feed right there," Jackson said. "That's inappropriate. Somebody said something - it's my teammate talking to me, joking around, and I respond. And I get fined $5,000. I can understand if I was ripping people's heads off, but I was just talking to a teammate in a joking manner."
Oh my, I was literally laughing out loud at his comments.
