Stephen Jackson is a beast

He has some bad habits (bad shots, driving into traffic), but after one game, it’s clear to see he is superior athletically and has much more potential to be dominant consistently than Mike Dunleavy.
He took over with his defense early on. How often have you seen that from any of the guys who were traded to Indiana.
I know it’s his first game. I know there are some bad ones to come. But you can already see what he can bring. The question isn’t can he do it, but will he consistently.
Remember, anything you get from Jackson is a bonus. The primary aspects of the deal were the $30-plus million in cap relief and Harrington. If Jackson can be close to what he was Saturday on a regular basis, that’s icing on the cake.
