From the Charlotte Observer Coach Larry Brown approached Stephen Jackson in the locker room, after media was let in, to talk about attitude. Sounds like Brown wants Jackson listening more receptively. As Brown is fond of saying to players, “it’s not criticism, it’s coaching.” Jackson is shooting the ball a lot, but not at a high percentage, while turning it over some. Apparently coach Brown feels he is a player that needs some coaching at this time.
I guess there’s something pent up inside me that is still bitter on the Stephen Jackson fiasco that led to his departure from the Warriors. I’m still happy we got rid of him, and love what team we gave him to (a non-winning team, opposite of his trade request). I’m loving the fact that he’s already causing problems in Charlotte, and he hasn’t even been there for a year. I guess I understand why he’s a fun guy to follow now that he’s not on my team. Shooting too much, and having a poor attitude, are they really surprised!?! It sounds exactly like what he was doing when he dumped the “Captain” tag in Oakland. He did those same things for the Warriors, but you couldn’t tell as much since they are arguably the fastest team in the league, and many others had the opportunity to make up for his off nights. Unfortunately for the Bobcats, they are finding out that he is at the center of his own world, and being on a non-contender will only make him pout about even calls more (causing technicals), and dominate the stat sheet in missed threes and turnovers. Moving to the slowest paced team in the league has made his sometimes ugly stat lines un-miss able. At least it’s given the local beat writers a fresh topic to complain about. Good luck Jack, I’ll continue to follow your awful time in Charlotte from a distance with a smile!

It’s good that he’s having fun. You’d hardly want him being in the midst of Arenas Crittendon bust up ? How the hell did those two idiots get tow unlicensed weapons into the team’s locker room and then ‘square off’ against each other over an unpaid gambling debt. Two teammates who are too dumb to know what they’re doing. And this was the player and team mceezy was trying to tell me would be a contender ? Please !
