Dec. 10 (UPI) -- The NBA has fined Spurs' forward Stephen Jackson $25,000 for sending out a threatening tweet to Oklahoma City Thunder's Serge Ibaka.

"Somebody tell serg Abaka. He aint bout dis life. Next time he run up on me im goin in his mouth. That's a promise. He doin 2 much," Jackson tweeted after the Lakers-Thunder game.

Jackson wasn't too happy when he saw his friend, Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace, get into a brief on-court brawl with Ibaka during Friday's game, for which both players received technical fouls.

The offending tweet has since been deleted, and Jackson issued this Instagram apology Sunday, captioned with the message, "Right is right, wrong is wrong":

According to CBS Sports, Ibaka had no interest in discussing the tweet.

When pressed lightly on the subject, Ibaka literally held both hands up and said, "I don't want to think about it."
