Stephen Jackson: Trade Was Good for Me

Pressing his case to be traded from the Golden State Warriors cost Stephen Jackson approximately $165,000.

In his first return to the San Francisco Bay area since being dealt to Charlotte on Nov. 16, Jackson said it was all worthwhile.

"Where I’m at now is great, it’s definitely been good for me," Jackson said Friday morning after the Bobcats’ shoot-around in preparation for their game against the Warriors.

The last Charlotte player announced during pre-game introductions, Jackson was booed as he jogged onto the court and was greeted by his teammates. The boos continued each time Jackson touched the ball, and he responded early by scoring on a dunk and short hook shot in the first four minutes.
