Yeah.............errrrm............Popovich, probably the strictest most disciplined coach in the league, spawns this as*hole.

Unless you mean that Jackson acts like this because he was brought up in a winning/consistent/structured culture that makes sense.............and so hence now he is in the exact opposite = a losing/totally inconsistent/un-structured culture, he doesnt like it.

I mean Jackson spent YEARS playing for Popovich didnt he? so of course, Popovich must have loved him and really liked his one dimensional chucking.

Jackson is acting like an idiot, but if this is what you think of him you don't know much about his "upbringing" or the majority of his life, in particular in regards to professional basketball.

& BIGS wouldn't have a clue about Poppavich upbringing as well..

I.E he learnt everything he knew from Don Nelson :D :D :D

Actually BIGS i must say in the case of Poppavich vs Nelson that Greg went onto far exceed his mentor... it's one thing winning regular season games but 4 Championships to Greg P's name... i'm sure Nellie would trade his winning record tally in a heartbeat for a Trophy.

You know, Im going to stop trying to assume that people can read between the lines of things and write alot simpler............because assuming people can actually read something and understand it obviously isnt working.

Ok, here goes:

I...........am..............aware............that............Stephen.............Jackson.............played.............
for...........a...........few.............teams..............before............San............Antonio

Drafted.............very...............late...............played...............overseas..............his............
first.................playing...............time.............came.................with..............New.............
Jersey..............for...............one.................year.................then..............he.............joined............
San..............Antonio................where..............he.............made...............his................name...............as
.............a..............clutch...............shooter................and...............important.................role..............
player.

He..............won...............a...............title...................then..............was.............
over-looked................by................Pop.................after..............being.............such................an.............
"integral"..............part..............of...............that................title..............team...............why?

Off...............the...............back...............of..............the.............showing...............with..............
San..............Antonio................some...............might.................say..............his..............coming...........
of...............age.................or................his.................."up-bringing"..............in .............as...............far..............as................his..............NBA............
education.................he...............was................signed................by...............Atlanta.

I...............would...............like....................to.................also..................add...............
that................I..............am...............aware..................that................Pop..............
was..............Nelson's..............assistant...............for...............many............years............
however................because..............Pop...............is................the...............absolute..............
anti-Nelson................as...............in...................he..............actually...............knows..............

I...............didnt.................feel.................it..................was...............necessary................to.............
mention.............his...............serving...............under..............Nelson...............seeing.............as..............how..............
he................displays................no.................Nelson..............traits.................what..............so...........
ever.

In.............conclusion..............would.............it.............be............fair..............to.............say................
that..............Jackson's............defining..............NBA............experience.............ie:.............his.............
education...........and................"up-bringing".............was..............whilst..............with..............San..............Antonio?.............in.............a..............

Clear enough?

Actually, I always thought Jack acted like this because of the life he lived growing up and all his experiences as a kid going into his teen years. I mean, he did watch his brother die in front of his very own eyes.

He has split personalities... Stack Jack and Captain Jack. Both have their controversies, but both make what he is today.

Some people's emotional maturity (I know Reg doesn't like that word) level shuts down at a young age. Trauma can cause this. If they don't seek help, they will continue to respond to stressful situations the same way. Jack's got about a 15 year old's emotional maturity level. The way he rants and doesn't hustle back when he doesn't get a call is embarrassing. Because he's so bull headed, I don't see him open to changing a thing about himself.

That's why I said before hook dude up with the Dr. Phil and put him on the show. How can we get started, I suggest we start a petition to get Jax on the show. It will help figure out his many problem and how to deal with them, not just on the court but in life as well. Even if Dr. Phil does not break through to him it would make excellent television. :mrgreen:
