I like the fact that he realizes braids put players in a very thuggish image and his decision to get rid of them is a major step in his defense of trying to to the right things.

I don't see how braids have anything to do with a persons character. Jackson needs to work on his actions and attitude on and off the court.

Listen, Steven Jackson is a grown man. He doesn't have to work on anything and it is not our place to tell him to do so. We don't own him just because he plays a sport. If you want to lavish this "They are suppose to be great at all times" delusional way of thinking on him so that your kids, the people in your life or perhaps even YOU can have someone to look up to, maybe you aren't a person who should be passing out the life assignments?

And maybe my idea of a role model or someone to look up to is not an overpaid uneducated man who goes to strip clubs, gets into fights, and fires off a gun in the middle of a parking lot. Not to mention he is only an average NBA player.
