Stephen Jackson: I should have never left San Antonio
“Every day, I wish I wouldn’t have ever left,” said Jackson, whom the Spurs acquired Thursday by trading Richard Jefferson to Golden State. “My career has taken me to a lot of places, but it’s good to end up back here where I always felt I belonged. “It’s sweet, man. Great team, great young guys, the organization is still one of the best in the league, if not the best, and I’m just happy to be back where I’ve always been family and somewhere I want to be.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Stephen Jackson finally gets that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
The Spurs - with Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker - continued winning, while Jackson became a basketball-nomad, alienating some combination of coaches, teammates, fans, and law enforcement in each of his stops.
