Dec. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Stephen Jackson of the San Antonio Spurs was fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for making a “hostile statement” on Twitter that was directed at Serge Ibaka of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced the discipline in an e-mailed statement.

Jackson yesterday apologized for his Twitter comments, in which he threatened to go after Ibaka the next time the Spurs and Thunder meet. “It was unprofessional and childish,” Jackson said. “I’m not a thug, just a man who speaks his mind. It was not appropriate. I do apologize.”

San Antonio visits Oklahoma City on Dec. 17. The Spurs and Thunder are tied for the NBA’s best record at 17-4.
