If Rowell the worst exec in basketball history right next to Isiah offered you a multiple year extention, I can't blame Jackson for signing the deal.
We are a young team, with some nice talent and lots of lottery picks (from all those losing seasons) ... why would you overpay and extend a player who will restrict you from acquiring a bonafide post player and/or resigning your young core.
I don't think our young players like Curry, Morrow, AR, and Ellis get better trying to rebound bricks from Mags and Jackson ... gee they might need to take a shot or two.
No one wants AI because good teams don't want the headache, and bad teams want to develop the young players. Last time I checked we finished around .300, and no one is placing us among the NBA elite.
Unfortuanately dareedle, you and I are the only one on this board that agree with what you so eloquently stated. I have been saying all along that Jackon is a mediocre player thats not going to get any better. We need to get better at that spot. A comparison AI at yjos stage of both their careers is OK, however, at one time AI was a star. Jackson has never been anything but mediocre. And for those of you disagree, look at hhis career stats. I displayed them another post recently. For his career he is a 41% shooter, and this is the guy who led the league in minutes played? He also takes more shots than any other Warrior. Is that what you really want?
Reg...............I know you love the the "Me vs the World" thing.
But seriously, and for about the 67th time now over the last 8 months................[b]why do you insist that you (and now dareedle) are the only ones who dispise Jackson and/or Nelson????
Its baffling, because now, pretty much every single person here wants Jackson gone..............and basically the same for Nelson.
And you have had various conversations and celebrations of how "we all hate Jackson and we all hate Nelson" with me and many others.............for some time now..............and Ive also been posting messages/reminders/questions like this one too you...............for some time now.
Whats the deal man? just talk to us, why does it always have to be "Ohh, Im the lone ranger and no-one thinks like me!" when maybe you were a year and a half ago...............but for a long time now, everyone has been on-board and in agreement with you, wouldnt you be happy about that?
ugh, i sorry but this anti-jackson stalk is absolutely stupid. He was asked to be a #1 player for this teams offense AND guard the number 1 on the opposing team., Jackson isnt no number 1 on any team team, but he is starter in every other team in the NBA, and is going to be the third or fourth best player with them. We complain because he is being asked to play the best or second best for this team. Don't blame him for doing his duty. Thats the GM/coaching staff for giving him support/ poorly utilizing him.
I think people get so caught up on ridiculous stats and forget the actual watching of the game. I watched a lot of games last year ask Capt. Jack and First Off, we were the three consistent one's watching the games on the chat thing all season. I saw jackson pull some hail mary's up in the air at times, but i also realized that no one else was going to put that ball in the hoop. I mean seriously, who else was going to do it. Monta was gone. Maggette was tired fast. So Jackson was all we got. He also, and surprisingly, passed the ball well. people forget he is not a bad passes (he's no PG, but he does well). His D is good, but he tires himself when he is asked to do to much, which is acceptable. He is an ok rebounder for a guard playing a forward position. WHY DO YOU GUYS WANT HIM OUT?
I think Reg and Deereedle have a point bigs... i honestly think that the "i want Jackson gone" thing is a minority opinion. Maybe not in the heat of the moment, but clearly looking back, the criticism of Jackson was wrongly directed. Not the criticism in general, but pointed to jackson. Some can blame Nelson, or Riley, or Mullen (who BTW, was nothing special of a GM, despite the talk on this board). Jackson is pretty darn valuable for this club or any, and he will be until right when his contract expires.. Plus he likes it here and is going to be very loyal to us. He is a good teammate according to the other players. So adding all that, i don't see why you 3 guys (and others) are so Anti-Jack.
