11.9: Matt Steinmetz on Jackson, Warriors
CSN Hoops Analyst Matt Steinmetz tells Scott Reiss that efforts to trade Stephen Jackson will heat up following the recent comments from Jackson's agent about head coach Don Nelson.
I can't watch them play form Marvin Lewis stay positive support him and his. I'm not sure this qualifies as staying positive. -- agent Mark Stevens telling Steve -- of espn.com quote. No one trust Don Nelson when Nelson was in Milwaukee weighed every trusted him brought him in any B trade -- in Dallas Mark Cuban took damn good care of them and his son. Any B trade Cuba in Golden State Chris Mullin hired in the trusted him. And Nelson backstabbing by reaching out to Robert Rowell and blaming Mullen for everything that was going wrong with the Warriors. Continued I just want him out of there now -- his client Jackson doesn't matter where at this stage something has to be done it can't get. Any worse. And that's -- that's here to talk more about this unhappy situation -- -- to review team can't play defense and shoot free throws Jackson wants out Maggette is unhappy Biedrins is hurt. -- -- mice missing anything or is that pretty much where we are right now. That's a pretty good roll -- his sport I mean I think to made of but the biggest problem is. How poorly they're playing. If they were playing this poorly. None of this would probably be as big of a factor but the fact of the matter is they've been blown out now by two teams that they're supposed to be competing against the Clippers in the king's. That's been the red flag it's kind of led to the waterfall ball was covered other negative stuff well let's attack Stephen Jackson now first at. -- will in fact he'd be with this team much longer you know. RI AI find it hard to believe I mean I think maybe the first things first day and it's gonna be sooner rather than later. Stephen Jackson move I don't necessarily think it's gonna solve every problem. But it is one that you could theoretically get out of the way ahead and I just think that. Everything's been accelerated now with the slow start in the comments so I would I would anticipate that things will begin to heat up until. In terms of the trade front program at and what else issue -- be focused on now decide what's going on with Stephen Jackson. Well I mean it is this team's got to win some games because they had a very easy early season schedule. It remains easy and and you know I said earlier that I thought the early start was a curse. Because if it meant that they had to get off to a good start now they have been. And it got nowhere to turn they've got a few more winnable games ahead and then the schedule gets tougher in a hurry so it's like if they don't put some wins under their belt now. They're gonna be much more difficult to get on the road when the Boston's the Cleveland's. And the San Antonio Spurs in Dallas comes up which is looming this schedule hasn't exactly been daunting so far up that it is much tougher Deborah -- -- jealousy on pregame live in the thanks a lot that.
