More or less, management in Golden State ain’t tryin’ to hear it from Cap’n Jack: “Stephen Jackson has been a true professional since arriving here three seasons ago, and our expectations of him have not changed despite his recent comments,’ Riley said in a statement Monday. ‘He’s been one of our most consistent and productive players during that time. We expect that same display of professionalism as we begin to prepare for training camp and the start of the upcoming regular season. ‘As far as his remarks on playing for a championship…that’s not the first time we’ve heard it because that’s the goal that he sets for himself and his teammates every season. That’s the type of confidence that he exudes as a player and the reason that he has endeared himself to our fans. That’s who Stephen Jackson is.”‘
