Overinflated ego and lack of self awareness cost him more years in the league and maybe a chip the yer after. Jack's not as good as these guys and he knows it. Why not say it? Trivial stuff coming froma "grown" man

Honestly it was a pointless lateral move for Pop to make because while T-Mac’s prime was 10 times higher than Jax.. at that point of both their careers, they were basically on the same level, and hell, id probably trust Jax to play better defense and hustle more. Tracy did nothing for the spurs..

Stacks was a helluva player! Pissed me off that he never joined Kobe! All Kobe needed was 1 Dawg to get the Lakers to thepromised land. Just 1, and I'd always felt Stacks game and mental approach and all out tenacity was PERFECT for Kobe and the Lakers organization. He'd be damn near deified by Lakers Nation had he and Kobe linked up and experienced even a near miss at a Championship because I don't see Kobe being able to destroy his psyche like he did Smush & Dwight Howard. Jack would've talked s* right back and gone out and taken his anger out on the next 2+ opponents, but it would've worked because Kobe would've respected him as both a man & a player.

Stak wouldve been good if the team lacked scoring off the bench but SA was a team that was a well oiled machine that incorporated a lot of passing, screening and cutting. Danny Green was in the talks of Finals MVP so Stak was definitely wrong in who was better for that SA team but you can't deny his mindset is how he got to where he is today.

From watching basketball, playing basketball and studying the game I know that Jackson could play on any team and should get many minutes and play. Also what Pop did just confirms to people that organizations are not loyal and players should not be loyal to organizations

Stephen Jackson is one underrated player..Indian Pacers to the Spurs given the minutes ..he would give your ass the buisness....NBA like alot of sports is politically bullshit..and mind games....

Stack thinking he better than Manu and Vince. Bro you were a good role player. Was never a first second or maybe even third option. Hell maybe not even fourth. Never made an all star or all nba team. But yet here you think your better than hall of famers. Bro you were that good you would have had playing time. Plain and simple. And Ray Allen would have are you. BBQ chicken. Keep warming up the bench while you think your a hall of famer. Only hof you will get is in ice cubes league.

"I was playing behind Kawhi, Danny Green and Ginobili" I mean, no offense, but that's your answer to your lack of PT right there. Stack was a useful player in his prime but 1) those are three really good players, two of whom probably end up in the HOF, and 2) in 2013, Stack was old and shooting 37% from the field and 27% from 3.

Stak aint shit, he was on a loaded 03 spurs and that was his notoriety his whole career. Spurs trash him to go to league worst atlanta the next season. His best season was on the bobcats which they got bounced on the 1st rd.

Just so we clear, Jackson is talking about the season which he averaged 6PPG. Manu average similar minutes and doubled his scoring, comes off the bench, no question asked. Green went on to set the NBA finals record for 3PT made the very playoff, the young wing they were grooming to play along side Kawhi. A role player who can't accept his role, he probably shouldn't have signed with the Spurs, of all teams, to begin with. The Spurs was a contender without him, it's perfectly understandable for them to look for alternative role player who's willing to play the role. "I was busting my teammates ass in practice." lol... We talking about practice? No the game, practice?

Ginobli, Danny Green?? Smh you ain’t better than them bro sorry man. On top of the fact I live here in San Antonio I’m a Mavericks fan but the love they have for those players bro Steven Jackson never really was able to have that kind of love ever since that Pacers incident and TMAC was one of my favorite players growing up and when he came to San Antonio I was really excited and he didn’t get no PT. They have spurs jersey shirts at the grocery stores man with green and ginobli..... I ain’t ever see a Jackson lol

I know Jack believe everything he saying but he played for 8 different NBA teams. He's like I didn't get a job after because blah blah blah. Bruh you played for 7 different organizations, if any of them liked you and you still could play they would of brought you in. I feel these guys are so delusional at times. Like that friend who tells everyone he would of made it if X happened

It sounds as if he was the only alpha male around that team. And the coach saw that and didn't like it. The spurs rosters have always have a cadence being opposite of Jackson's personality. Which made him stick out.

Kawhi, Danny Green, and MANU are all better players. Of course he was playing behind them. Dude was better at starting fights than he was at playing basketball.

Idk man. If you're a good scorer, you should be able to light it up. Just look at Lou will. His entire basketball existence is based on him getting of the bench and making instant buckets.

Sports in general has this illusion that if someone doesn't perform on a high or expected level then their skills aren't as good or that they are even a bust. Very rarely do you see analysts (non pros ) make the huge point that if a player is in the wrong system, they have no control over it and therefore can not show their true potential. In other words the player is blamed for the teams inapt leadership abilities. I believe if someone like Dak went to a team where top to bottom they had their shit together, his skill would appreciate in all areas. This came to full thought when I watched this. Stephan explained how a coach reduced his value by limiting his playing time but by doing it in a particular way where it was impossible for him to produce but not hurt the team. It made me wonder how often does this happen? Thanks for listening.
mrbiggs36 پیش 10 ماه
It's Pop's job to have a cohesive unit and play players the correct amount of minutes. They keep talking about rhythm and minutes and not getting enough touches. Well that's the job if you're coming off the bench. Some guys are built for that to where they're always ready and can come in and hit shots, some guys aren't. If you can do the job, the coach has a spot for you.

0:30 Stack sound like a conspiracy nut right here. “That’s the situations they through you in to make you look like you can’t play. That’s how they got rid of Melo.” Teams don’t need to go through all that. They just cut you if they don’t want you.
