Stephen Jackson has not had what one would call a settled NBA career — a dozen years, seven NBA cities. Three and a half seasons in Golden State is the longest he has spent with any one team.
At age 34 he is entering his second season on his second stint with the San Antonio Spurs. In an ideal world Jackson would like this to be the last stop in his career, he told the Beaumont Enterprise. But he knows that may not be the case.
“If things work out in San Antonio I wouldn’t mind finishing my career there. But you know it’s a business and I’m one of those guys that doesn’t mind going to play somewhere else.”
Jackson doesn’t have a lot of years left in the league. Last year he only played in 21 games for the Spurs, and he gave them 8.9 points per game but on just 40.5 percent shooting when he got on the court. And that was really better than the previous couple years, because Gregg Popovich gets the most out of him. This would be a fitting place to finish out his career because of just that.
By the way, note to the Beaumont Enterprise: Keeping most of the interview for the print edition of the publication? Because that is going to drive sales at newsracks? How very 1990s of you. Other papers have tried that idea, I’ll save you the trouble, it doesn’t really work.
