AT&T Center - Following their 108-101 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday, the San Antonio Spurs finally had to face the media after completing their first game without former Spur Stephen Jackson, who was placed on waivers a few hours before tip-off.
“It’s a hard one,” said guard Tony Parker. “That’s Pop’s decision; you’ll have to ask him.”
Gary Neal on the other hand, said though he wanted Jackson around, he knows a championship is the team's focus even if it meant losing a close friend of his.
“You know Jack’s one of my close friends,” said Neal. “I wanted Jack around, but Coach Pop decided for whatever reason Jack wouldn’t be a member of our team anymore.”no comments
