Stephen Jackson made it abundantly apparent where he stands on the Zaza v. Russ debate, aiming his lance squarely at the Georgian big man during an appearance on FS1’s “Undisputed” on Monday morning.

“He dirty,” Jackson declared. “He’s lucky he’s in the league at the right time because he would have gotten knocked out four or five times for the stuff he’s done.”

“(The) Kawhi (Leonard) move, definitely, in the playoffs. He definitely would have gotten taken out — I think…”

The former “We Believe” Warrior said Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich used to send him into games in such situations to exact revenge.

“I remember when Pop used to put me into games to go put hard fouls on certain guys. I would have took more than a foul on him that game,” Jackson said. “I wish I was on OKC the other night because I definitely would have slapped him.”

Jackson insisted that it wasn’t Nick Young’s foot that dragged down Pachulia and that players know how to fall.

“That was intentional,” Jackson said. “Everything he does is dirty and he does dirty things to make up for lack of talents. Let’s be honest, he’s not that good.”
