The deadline deal that sent Stephen Jackson to San Antonio surprised everyone. While it was no surprise that the Warriors—who had just acquired Jackson—wanted no part of him, few could have predicted his landing spot would be with the Spurs.
Since arriving, Jackson has made it clear that there is no team or coach that he would rather play with than Pop and the Spurs. His true NBA career started with the Spurs, and this was the location, team and coach with which he won his first and only ring.
However, Jackson can promise the organization whatever he pleases, but nothing will be accomplished until he proves himself on the hardwood. And if he truly wants to bring the Spurs to glory, he will have to provide a spark immediately.
