Captain Jack is back, Spurs trade for Stephen Jackson
According to reports by Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the San Antonio Spurs have reacquired Stephen Jackson from the Golden State Warriors:
Jackson won a championship with the Spurs in 2003 and coach Gregg Popovich has long valued his toughness.
I’ll update this post with more analysis shortly, but feel free to share your thoughts. In the meantime just know that I am irrationally happy about this development. Every fan, writer, etc. has that one player that for whatever reason, sometimes against logic even, they love to watch. Jackson has always been that guy for me.
It remains to be seen what Jackson has left to offer, but at a quick glance the Spurs have added a little more playmaking on the perimeter and a player known for dropping quotes about loving pressure.
