It’s Operation Shutdown Time for Stephen Jackson

The Warriors’ captain isn’t going to be playing for a while due to a bum toe: “Ever wonder why Jackson, who is right-handed, almost always jumps off his right foot (which is what a left-handed shooter does)? It’s because his left big toe has been killing for more than two years now. And he’s fed up with it…But now he has an appointment in Houston on Friday to get his toe checked out. He’ll play Wednesday night in Dallas (you know he’s not missing a showdown with Dirk) and then he’s going get his toe examined by the Houston Rockets doctor. Why now? Because it’s getting worse and the Warriors aren’t playing for anything. After the New Orleans game, he was noticeably limping. Then Tim Duncan stepped on it tonight.”

    If the season is pretty much over and you’ve been out of the playoff hunt since pretty much mid November, why are you still playing 40mpg on a sore toe Ms Jackson?

    I think the Rockets have all the STATISTICS on “Toe surgery to allstar form ratio”.
