Golden State Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson Was Target Of Extortion Plot

Mark Jackson did not have a great year as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors and now he is having an interesting offseason.  Apparently, Jackson was the target of an extortion plot which was hatched by a stripper that he had an affair with.

Former NBA star–and current Golden State Warriors head coach–Mark Jackson was the target of a recent extortion plot allegedly hatched by an ex-stripper with whom he carried on an extramarital affair and shared photos of his genitalia, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Well, there are two issues with this for Mark Jackson.  One, he was having an affair.  Not exactly a smooth move there coach.  Bet your family was really happy with that.  Two, never share photos of yourself that you would not want released to the public.  Never leave a trail, but I guess people do not understand this.

Luckily, Mark Jackson helped foil the plot, but it raises further questions.  Mainly, what exactly was going through Jackson’s head when he had an affair with a stripper?  Those people are not exactly upstanding citizens.  They would be high up on the list of people who would want to extort somebody.  Not a smooth move sending her pictures of you naked.

Since the advent of social media, more cases like this keep popping up.  This should be a warning for all famous people out there.  If you are going to have an affair (for the love of God, don’t do that), you have to watch your back.   Otherwise, people want that cash flow from you.
