Not that Michael Jackson, which would have made Marreese Speights’ experience earlier this week out-of-this-world terrifying.

But this still sounds pretty scary.


Center Marreese Speights was at the Cellar Night Club on Sutter Street downtown early Monday morning.

KTVU’s law enforcement sources say a convicted felon pulled a gun on him in a small parking lot across the street.

Sources say a group of gang members tried to rob him of his gold chains. Speights ran from the group.

He was not injured and played the next night.

Officers arrested the alleged gunman and identified him as 28-year-old Michael Lamont Jackson of San Francisco.

Speights shot 1-for-8 against the Thunder on Monday night.

He shot 8-for-12 against the Pacers on Wednesday.
