DH found this pic floating around the twitterverse the other day. Apparently it's from Stephen Jackson's halloween party from a month back. Luckily for San Antonio the pic didn't start making the rounds until after the NBA levied it's hefty punishment on the Spurs for sitting four of it's best players against Miami due to ridiculous scheduling on the NBA's part. One might think that Tony Parker and Tim Duncan would get in a lot of trouble for this pic (didn't catch the noose until today), but the NBA might not want to draw any more attention to it's already much maligned ref corps. Suspending Parker and Duncan over this would definitely shine the spotlight back on the NBA's sketchy officials.
Anything's possible though. In case you forget Duncan and Joey Crawford have a history (see grainy video below).
