Stephen Jackson: Monta Ellis Is Ahead of Schedule

Me: "OK, let me ask you about mopeds. After what happened to Monta Ellis, is it taboo to joke about mopeds on that team?"

Jackson: "One thing about this team. There is nothing that’s off limits in the locker room. Bad shoes, bad haircut, anybody can get it at any time, for anything. Plus, I’ll tell you what. Monta’s in Oakland right now, riding the bike, ahead of schedule. He’s going to be back. And everybody makes mistakes. I’m a living testament to that. What matters is not the mistake, but what you do after that, and he’s going to do great."
