Stephen Jackson sure does know how to create news. It was just last week that a report surfaced claiming that he wanted out of Golden State (which he later denied, of course), and now he’s talking about his former teammate, Baron Davis, possibly making a return to the Warriors.
Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth – courtesy of Inside the Warriors:
“That’s all we talked about,” Jackson said. “I went to his house, spent some time with his mom and his grandmother. He wants to come back. And if he wants to come back, I want him back.”
“I think that would be great for us,” Jackson said. “Coach loves him. Him and (guard) Monta (Ellis) have good chemistry. If they could work that out, that would be great for the organization.”
If the Warrior front-office (fractured as it is) wanted B-Diddy back, they’d likely have to get rid of both Corey Maggette and newly-acquired Jamal Crawford.
In all likelihood, this is probably just Stephen Jackson talking (and dreaming), after all, the Warriors have been terrible this season and sure could use a change of pace. But it’s definitely something interesting to ponder, for both the Warrior and Clipper franchises and their fanbases.
