why would anyone want a self portrait tattoo? If you forget what you look like look in the freaking mirror.

You're jealous because the Pacers made the worst trade in recent memory. The Warriors came away with the biggest playoff upset in NBA history in beating the Mavericks, all because of JACK and Baron. Deal with it Pacer fans!!!

I don't know where to start here -- the fact that the Pacers' castoffs seem to have become GS's leaders, or that this is the future of the soon-to-be unwatchable National Basketball Association. Good luck.

In Indiana a person's character matters. In California instant gratification (winning) is all that matters.

So far, Jackson and Harrington have been nothing but passionate and great players for my Warriors. I don't know what sort of rap they got in the Bay Area, but these two have been great with the community as well, in and around the area. I guess if instant gratification means giving people another chance, then I am all for it. As for the tattoos, I think they are silly but who am I one to judge someone just because of something on someone's skin.

Jealous? Not even close.
Jack was a cancer on the team. He was selfish, made too many turnovers, and always was complaining.

Pacer fans want a player to play hard and play smart. Jack would not do either.

You will find out what kind of average player he really is...good riddance Jack...the Pacers are already funner to watch without this thug.

We couldn't get him out of here fast enough. You'll soon see why.

You have clearly not watched too many California sports teams. You do know that, other than the Sharks who are pretty consistent, they have all sucked for years, right?

Jax wore out his welcome with the Spurs and dumped him on Atlanta. Likewise, the Hawks passed him onto the the fools who run the Pacers. Bad trade or not, Indy is happy to be rid of this deadbeat. Despite his brief playoff heroics, rest assured he will embarass your franchise and fans in a big way sometime soon. How he acted during the playoffs is just a preview of the coming attractions. Free spirit? He's a drunk and a thug with a sense of entitlement, not citizenship. Good luck with that POS.

Yeah, you guys are right. Give us Murphy and Dunleavy back!

Sike! Hahaha no trade backs!

We should have held on to Adonal Foyle and traded him to the Pacers for O'Neal, since the Pacers value character so much.

That's exactly the kind of leadership the Warriors need. Now they know that when the going gets tough, they can look to Jackson ... he'll be polishing his piece with Misty in the Champagne Room.

And you just know this put some ideas in Ron Artest's head.

The previous poster said _Indiana_ values character - he didn't say the Pacers do. And that's exactly why people in the city and state are washing their hands of what used to be a great franchise.
Still happy w the deal

Maybe a (3rd) change of scenery helped him. I doubt it but ...
The fact is there was no way he could stay here any longer. Unfortunately, the rest of the NBA knew it too. He had made it very clear that he didn't care about the fans or franchise. Perhaps he finally saw the error of his ways - for his sake (and Mullins') I hope so.

Hey Stephen, instead of praying that you don't have to use your gun again, how bout not owning one? Or if you own one, stay out of places you would be more inclined to use it.

GS Fan - I agree, I want DunMurphy back too!... NOT!

The biggest difference between that mid-season trade between the Warriors and Pacers is that we ended up with recycable materials, and Indy got garbage!
