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.

Years ago, Jackson helped the San Antonio Spurs win a championship; however, he left as a free agent after a trivial contract dispute.

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.

Worst of all, ‘Captain Jack’ teased with his talent. Remember, the versatile swing was terrific for the Golden State Warriors before falling-out with coach Don Nelson.

Over the years, one thing never changed: Jackson and the Spurs were good together.

So Thursday’s news that the black-and-silver had acquired Jackson for Richard Jefferson was hardly a surprise. His shooting and toughness could be the difference between the Spurs winning or losing a round in the Western Conference playoffs.

Expect Jackson to shine in this second stint with the Spurs. He’s learned - the hard way - that San Antonio is pretty green.

If There was a 66 Game Season, Would You Care?

If There was a 66 Game Season, Would You Care?

In the words of Yoda, “66 games does not a season make.” Well, maybe Yoda never actually said that, but I’m pretty sure he would at least be thinking it based on the latest news regarding the NBA lockout.

How Dangerous is Blake Griffin?

How Dangerous is Blake Griffin?

I’m not talking about Javaris Crittenton dangerous. It’s more like “scary player can dominate the NBA like Jordan” dangerous. The kid right now is already in many people’s top ten lists. Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, Tim Duncan, and Shawn Kemp were not THIS explosive. They were not this good early in their careers. Griffin is so good that I had to acknowledge that he might be a future triple double factory in this piece. Seriously, how great can this kid get without factoring in injuries like he sustained in his first year?

NBA Legends who are not the GOAT
Saturday , Jun , 04 , 2011 J.N.

NBA Legends who are not the GOAT

This comes up every playoff time involving great active players such as Kobe Bryant and LeBron James right now in 2011. Whenever one of them goes deep in a playoff run putting up good statistics and highlight plays, the media and former players gas these guys up. The method is definitely a “prisoner of the moment” type thing. Why do you guys do it? There is a lot of front running and some trolling. All good though. I’m ready. We’re ready. My body is ready. Let’s do this. Remember that the standards are extremely high and strict. These legends have great accomplishments. However, further scrutiny causes them not be the ultimate GOAT.

Tony Parker: Spurs’ championship window is over

Tony Parker says that age has finally caught up with the Spurs. "At the start of the season I said this was our last chance," he said. "Tim and Gino (Manu Ginobili) are getting old. It's going to be tough to regenerate ourselves.

HoopsVibe`s Very Quick Call: Good. Just not great.

This is how Tony Parker sees his San Antonio Spurs, who, according to the lightning-quick table-setter, are now too old to win an NBA championship.

Parker thinks the Spurs are still relevant, though; however, their days of June victory parades along the San Antonio river-walk are no more.

Going forward, the Spurs` greatest challenge is identity -as in they lost theirs.

For years, Gregg Popovich`s crew were known for air-tight defence. Home or away, they were always competitive because they got-stops.

This season, they shifted to an up-tempo system to create easy hoops for the veterans. It worked during the regular season when games are open.

In the playoffs, the tempo slows. Teams get dirty, especially on defense. And the Spurs couldn`t adjust, which resulted in a, somewhat, surprising loss to the upstart Memphis Grizzlies.

So for the Spurs to stay competitive, they must rediscover their defensive chops. Or, The Alamo could continue falling in the Western Conference.

Derrick Rose. The 2010-2011 MVP. Haters welcomed!

Derrick Rose. The 2010-2011 MVP. Haters welcomed!

Derrick Rose is officially the youngest NBA MVP for anyone living in a cave kicking it with John Rambo. He earned it at 22 years old. Leading the team to the number one record is a tall order for anyone. The 2010-2011 season is historic mainly because of this. Basketball fans witnessed something amazing that we will not see again from any 22 year old NBA player. It was fun to see all of the games on DirecTV. Chicago’s offense and the opposing team’s defensive game plans truly revolved around the Poohdini of the Hardwood.

Gary Neal saves the day, and season, for San Antonio Spurs

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They were down 3-1 in the series. And they were down 3 with seconds remaining.

So, who did the San Antonio Spurs turn to when their season was on-the-line? Tim Duncan? Manu Ginobili? Richard Jefferson? Or even Tony Parker?

No, Coach Gregg Popovich called on rookie Gary Neal to tie the game with a clutch three-pointer. The Spurs then won in overtime.

To be fair, this wasn't a complete shocker because Neal led all rookies in three-point percentage. However, most first year players would find the circumstances overwhelming.

Not Neal, though.
