Stephen Jackson Takes Jab at Rip Hamilton

Aye, Captain: Don’t expect Jackson to wear any protective gear for his left eye, which is still pink after being poked by Clippers center Chris Kaman on Saturday.

"No goggles. No, no, no. Never. I’m not going to be like Rip Hamilton, where my nose is broken eight years ago and I still wear a mask," said Jackson, who injured the same eye during the preseason. "The only way I’ll wear a patch is if my eye’s closed. I’d rather stay with Captain Jack, not Pirate Jack."
