Stephen Jackson: Already in Great Shape For Next Season

Thanks to a new diet, hot yoga and cardio, Stephen Jackson’s feeling better than ever: “‘The older I get, the more I got to take care of myself,’ said Stephen Jackson. ‘So I stopped eating fried foods, stopped eating fast food. It’s starting to help; I’m getting more energy. I wish I had known that when I was young, but sometimes it takes injuries and stuff to realize how hard you have to work. And I think me having a hamstring injury last year was a blessing in disguise for me, and it’s starting to pay off…I feel great. I mean, it’s the best I’ve felt since I’ve been in the NBA. Like B.J. said, I feel like I’m in San Antonio again, as far as weight-wise and body-wise. I just feel great. I just want to continue to stay on top of it and be ready to play… I finished last season at 243. I’m 225 now.’”

    Great, he just has to wait anywhere between 5 month and a year now…

    My man Benjamin Button keeping at it! Should be a key piece of a contender instead of trying to lead a young rebuilding team at his age.

    ‘So I stopped eating fried foods, stopped eating fast food, stopped being run over by cars while engaging in a gunfight….’

    Not a story outside of the Jackson household bc he plays for Charlotte. But hey good for him.

    Love Stephen Jackson. He’s a hard-nosed, tough as nails, versatile, throwback to the pre-90s era kind of basketball player.

    If we get a good center and a young reserve small forward in the draft, i like our playoff chances for next year.

    What do Bobcats fans think of trading Jackson to Chicago for their two first-round picks? Bobcats would have 4 first round picks and Chicago get a championship calibre SG who can create his own shot to play alongside D-Rose. Also, Bobcats get younger and can develop their first-round picks while they sit tight and hope for that franchise player in the 2012 draft. All they would need is one star to be a very young, deep team that could eventually win a championship, instead of a team unlikely to make it out of the 1st round.

    Funny how you always hear about new diets and the ‘best shape of my life’ about a year or two before production starts to decline.

    I don’t give a damn about a Jackson, Williams, Jones, Brown, Johnson, or Jenkins.
