The NBA is the best soap opera on the face of the planet.
What's our evidence? All-Star Jimmy Butler requested a trade from the Minnesota Timberwolves a week before training camp starts and his current teammate Andrew Wiggins got into a social media war of words with former Warriors forward Stephen Jackson over a tweet sent by Wiggins' brother.
We can't make this stuff up.
In an Instagram video posted late Wednesday evening, Jackson questioned Wiggins' heart.
News website The Score re-posted the video and it drew comments from Jackson and Wiggins, who called Jackson a 'bum.'
That caused Jackson to respond in a second video in which is sent a message to Wiggins: 'Make sure you hands are straight when you see me, bruh."
Jackson even posted a screenshot of his career stats to prove to Wiggins that he isn't a bum.
Don't ever change, NBA. Don't ever change.
