Mr. Jackson is a thug and should be gone from the Pacers if not from basketball. And then, he uses God to defend his actions. He states "I'm just blessed to be alive. God knew I wasn't doing wrong, He knew I was minding my business doing the right thing. That's why I'm standing here right now."
So we are to believe God thought it ok for Jack to be at a strip club, 3:00am, defending his teammates by shooting at someone 5-6 times during training camp. And Mr Jackson's wife, does she also defend his right to shoot at people at a strip club at 3:00 in the morning? Please show him the door. Better for the Pacers, better for the fans, better for Jack. He needs to find another excuse.

I'm sick of all the talk I hear about Stephen Jackson and how he's such a bad guy....I think he's a rider who has his teammates back. Why would the fans boo him on some crap that took place outside the court..what's that have to do with what's going on in that building...not a darn thing..if you want to pay your money to boo your own players...good for you..it's dumb but good for you.

that shows disrespect for the pacers organization. Life is about choices. He and his teammates made the CHOICE to be there. There should be zero tolerance for stupidity. He should have to sit out on the bench the rest of the year. Lose some of his big bucks and GROW UP. I remember watching the pacers from many years back and this never would have happened. I am disapointed in Larry Bird. You never saw him getting into situations he knew he shouldn't be in.
I always thought he was a stand up guy. The team lost a great role model when Reggie retired. Now, there appears to be onone left to lead this team of misfits. Goodbye pacers, Hello Colts.
Who knows what Larry the Legend did or got away with. I'm sure he wasn't popping his gun at strip clubs but just because of that..you have no idea the mischief he got into that was never brought to our attention. We are in a different day and time now...the media is constantly around unlike they were back in the 80s when Bird was playing.

I can't believe all the replies supporting this bunch of creeps! Maybe that's why they act this way, because SOME fans think the players should be able to break the law and get away with no penality, just because they are Pacers. If they were common street people, these same writers would be screaming for their heads. I'll save my ticket money for a new set of golf clubs.
