As Stephen Jackson attempts to escape the confines of his $13 million-a-year prison, it’s fitting that the Warriors arrive in Indiana to play the Pacers tonight.
While Inmate Number One does everything short of challenging Keith Smart to games of three bullet mow mow, there is no team more familiar with this side of Jackson than Indiana.
After all, the Pacers saw far too much of this from Jackson three seasons ago, which is why they couldn’t wait to ship him to Oakland.
The Warriors knew the deal with Jackson coming in; his attitude was the reason he was available in the first place. Outside of Robert Rowell, everyone seemed to know that this was a fling, not a marriage.
