Only in NY: Spurs’ Jackson Trips Over Bloomberg’s Waitress, Leaves Game

No word on whether or not Bloomberg’s treats were low-sodium, trans-fat-free and 16 oz. or less:
Spurs forward Stephen Jackson left San Antonio’s 100-83 loss to the Knicks after spraining his right ankle when he crashed into a waitress working the sideline in front of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Guess who just contributed to the crime rate in NYC,” tweeted New York Daily News reporter Frank Isola.
Jackson was hurt in the first quarter Thursday night when he shot a 3-pointer from the corner. The shot missed and he stepped backward out of bounds and onto the waitress, who was kneeling in front of courtside seats.
