Fan backlash from the team’s impending move from Oakland to San Francisco isn’t the only off-the-court headache the Golden State Warriors are dealing with at the moment.
On Thursday, the Smoking Gun broke the news that Warriors coach Mark Jackson, who is also a minister, has been the victim of an extortion plot by his ex-stripper former mistress.
Earlier this week, the FBI arrested 28-year-old Alexis Adams and co-conspirator Marcus Shaw in connection with a scheme to blackmail the former NBA star out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by threatening to go public with the affair and release graphic photographs of his genitalia to “the vultures in the media.”
According to a sworn affidavit by FBI agent Beth Alvarez, Jackson and Adams had an affair six years ago while she was working at a gentleman’s club in New York and he was an announcer for the New Jersey Nets. The affair lasted less than 12 months, ending when Jackson, a father of four, refused to leave his wife of 16 years.
