NBA: Stephen Jackson Says He’d Be Perfect Fit With Knicks & Goes In on Derek Fisher

  As you’ve probably noticed, I did quite a few posts on Stephen Jackson.  While preparing for his NBA comeback, he’s also been pretty chatty on a few different subjects; from Tony Parker being selfish to his top five in the league now.  Though Jackson says he doesn’t plan to try out for teams and is waiting on calls, he also says he’d be a perfect fit for the Knicks.  He also went on the Knicks former coach Derek Fisher, who’s been hinting at an NBA comeback of his own.

Stephen Jackson has never been one to hold his tongue but he’s been extra chatty lately as he prepares for an NBA comeback.  This time he’s spilling the beans on former teammate Tony Parker whom he played with on the San Antonio Spurs from 2001-03, then came back during the 2011-12 season.  They won a championship in 2003, and tried again in 2012 but fell short.  Jackson says the reason they lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals after being up 2-0, is because of Parker.

NBA: Stephen Jackson Rips Players in the League Choosing Money Over Winning

One of the longest running debates in sports when we discuss a player’s choices is, is he going to go for the money or try to win?  But no matter what players do we often criticize them anyways.  Carmelo Anthony was criticized for staying with the New York Knicks where he received more money instead of going to another team like the Chicago Bulls (who were good btw).  BUT Kevin Durant was also criticized for choosing the Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors instead of staying with the Oklahoma City Thunder whom he could’ve signed a substantial contract with.  Now yes there’s other semantics in these examples and it’s not as clear cut but the point still remains that players have to do what’s best for them because they’ll get criticized either way.  But anyway, Stephen Jackson did an interview with HoopsHype and ripped players for taking money over winning.
