Jackson leads Warriors into second round

Full story: The Indianapolis Star

Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson shot the ragtag Warriors right into the second round, capping perhaps the NBA's biggest playoff upset with yet one more memorable performance on their home floor.

For those who still mistakenly think the Pacers got the better end of the trade. Time to get real. Mully would have been willing to trade away DumbMurthy for a burger and a coke. Just by getting rid of their salaries will alow GSW to resign real players like Ellis and Biedrin.

Getting Al and Jax just sweetened the deal more. Al and Jax were both instrumental late in the regular season during the playoff run. And Jax was playing so well in the 1st round and helped GSW to knock off Dallas.

With a good coach, a good team, and a good system, castoffs like Jax can now thrive. He wouldn't have been able to do it in Indiana for sure.

Just bc you call them jax and al doesn't mean you know what you are talking about . . . the man is a convict thug and should be locked up, not earning millions.

I knew when that deal went down GS got the better half dude. What ass wouldn't? Jackson is a thug, Baron is great and could have been one of the best PG's to play the game, too bad he will never be healthy enough to complete a full season. Matt Barnes just rubs me the wrong way as an NBA player. Seems to be influenced by Jackson's ways...

Wait till your "good coach" decides that since your owner is so wealthy why shouldn't he be that much richer himself and ditch your team with 17 games left to play in the season. Or, it is possible that he'll add to his magnificent REGULAR season win totals and just get bored with the town of Oakland and decide to once again retreat to his Hawaiin home and sip Millers and Mai Tai's and count greenbacks.

Dallas needs a freaking overhaul. I need to RealGM it but we need a great PG, SG or a great center, the previous 2 which are more likely. I think Joe Johnson would be a nice fit.

Dirk cannot do this by himself, he isn't the hero that everyone wants him to be. He's not Kobe or Tmac and he will never take over a team and take a championship nor does he want to or has ever been disillusioned with that preconceived notion.

In my opinion we keep Josh and Dirk and the rest is in the air. Stack and Devin would be great to keep too. As much as this kills me to say (not nearly as bad as finding out about Stevie)Terry is the # trade chip this off season. It's not forseeable that JET and Dirk can be symbiotic and take a championship. There is no vocal leader on this team and let's face it, Avery is still a brand new coach.

I thought it would be great when the Iverson sweepstakes abounded that we take Allen but Avery wasn't interested stating "aroung here we like to practice" fair enough. Dirk and Josh are one AI, TMac, Chauncey Billups, Ben Wallace, even Joe Johnson away from sniffing another championship series. They say that the championship window is very short for a team in the NBA. Will Cuban stick around to find out?

jackson can get on fire, but for the most part he is very streaky and very moody excpecting to recieve the ball more.

he was in indiana for 3 years almost and we as pacer fans got excited by what he could do but as time went on it changed, and i am not refering to his off the court garbage but his game performance and his rediculous super star attitude. Stars show more consistency than him. Trust me on this. You havent had him for a year yet and just during the playoffs he has been ejected twice in the first round alone. Give it time....

Jackson (or Jax as you wanna be gangstas want to call him) is still a punk & I'd rather have a so so player who is respectful than a big mouth super star (in his mind anyway).

I still hate Stephen Jackson but look how good he is in a fast-paced game. You know, the kind of game Carlisle was supposed to let the Pacers play this year. I guess the players were correct when saying that Carlisle was slowing them down too much.

Everyone knows Jackson can get hot sometimes as a lot of other players do the same. I think he has shown his true nature on and off the court and will continue to do the same. How many people get ejected in 2 playoff games in the same series? Not exactly someone I would call a star much less a respectable player. The down side of this is more and more 'kids' are coming into the NBA with very little respect for the game or the team image. I think we will see more Jackson type players unless the NBA really cracks down on this kind of thing.

I bet Jackson can't punt the ball higher than Chuck Person.

guys its obvious that it was indiana who wasn't able to make use of Jack.....he gets open threes and he creates for his teammates in golden state....in indiana the plan is known get to the half court dump the ball to oneal and hope for the best....Stephen jackson plays with so much emotion and fire and its contagious....look at how much he got his teammates into the game....not to mention that he has a playoff ring and has experience...so he probably told the guys not to panic after losing at dallas....youd rather have a so so player who is respecful than a big mouth superstar? And you wonder why the pacers are horrible? I want to win games im sick of people wanting a basketball team full of ideal citizens who can't play.

Your nuts, I'd rather have Jackson and Harrington then the b*****s we got. Jackson shot the lights out. So what he's got a temper, he brings it every game...I hope he gets Ring #2

It is possible to have a good team who are also good citizens, look at the Bulls and the Pistons. Sure Wallace and Hamilton get a lot of technicals, but you never hear about any off the court problems from them.

Comments like the above who want winners no matter what kind of men they are is a bunch of crap! The NBA is fast becoming "street ball" played by thugs that cannot be made into good citizens by anyone. The comment that Jackson hasn't been in Oakland even a year yet is right on the money. Give him 2 or 3 more years and you will see his true character come out. And, of course, Harrington showed himself as usual --- disappearing in the playoffs. We saw that when he was in Indiana. Given all that, I was glad to see the Warriors beat the Mavs. It couldn't happen to a better owner! I loved it when the camera focused on Mark Cuban and you saw the look on his face. Too bad, billionaire Mark! Your team lost big time! There is no way Dirk Nowitski should be league MVP. MVP's will their teams to win. Dirk cannot do that. If the Warriors keep playing at this level, they will beat either Houston or Utah. They probably can't beat the Suns or Spurs, but it will be a great ride.

Although Jack-O brought the Pacers plenty of trouble throughout his tenure here, he was way too valuable to send away from the team when we were getting so little in return. The Warriors front office did a nice job sending us a guard/forward still finding his place on the team, a forward/center that is a six or seventh option at best, and a center with potential and nothing more. The Pacers should have gone out and got some proven talent, not a bunch of questionable potential. Way to go Warriors!!!

The Sun or Spurs are going to win it all, but I have to give props to the Warriors. I wonder what Larry and Donnie are thinking right now?

Way to go Jackson,now get Harrington more involved as well. This will show the Hick from French Lick and Wabble Walsh just how stupid this trade is. Can you believe they traded 2 starters in double figures for 3 less than average, slow, shouldn't be in the NBA BENCHWARMERS..PLEASE GET RID OF BIRD-HE'S PITIFUL...Or the seats in Conseco will stay empty..PACERS UP FOR SALE IN 2009..

The win at all cost mentallity will and has cost the NBA quite a few fans. The NBA is turning into the M1 experience for millionares. My point is that I refuse to support a league & a local team that thinks it's OK to hire and pay players who have the mentality that a lot of todays players have. The Pacers are worfully mis-managed & have been ever since Larry Legand was involved & will be until the leadership changes. I appreciate more effort with less talent even if that means we loose. There was an editorial in the star about the rough lives that Jackson has lived...... boo hoo. That's just an excuse. You guys keep worshipping your so called superstars, while there all laughing all the way to the bank to deposit the money you spent to praise their half assed effort. It's the same thing the hip-hop musician do when they rap about the hard inner city life while they sit in their mansions. It's all a joke. & you guys are the punch line.

Hey Funny, you are really funny. Apparently, you didn't get your information from neutral sources like the Wall Street Journals. You have read too much info fed to you by another funny guy named Cuban.

As the WSJ mentioned, the rift between Cuban and Nellie started when Nellie refused to play the injured Norwizki for fear of ending his career. Cuban couldn't careless about the players so he tried to force Nellie to play him. Nellie threw him out of his office. Then there was no turning around.

Cuban signed Finney and had no money to resign Nash. Nellie was really upset. And when you are as old as Nellie and with your 3 coach of the year awards and a stupid owner, there's no more fun to work in Dallas anymore.

These are the facts reported by WSJ, not from your Dallas media.
