Warriors must trade Jackson now


Warriors must trade Jackson now The Warriors are a joke until they unload Stack Jack.

That became glaringly apparent Monday when Stephen Jackson's pit-bull agent attacked Don Nelson via ESPN.com.

The situation was dicey at best anyway, and now Team Jackson has gone on what I call an Eric Dickerson Offensive.

And it is offensive.

Dickerson is the great running back who played for the then Los Angeles Rams, setting NFL rushing records that still stand. Part of his success came because of the coaching brilliance of John Robinson.

Dickerson came to believe he was severely underpaid by the Rams probably true, and grew frustrated with the Rams' and Robinson's reluctance to trade him, so he set about to make himself a colossal pain in the tush, to ensure his exit.

One of Dickerson's public comments referred to the play that had been the most successful for him.

"Let Robinson run '47-gap,' " Dickerson said.

Soon the Rams traded him.

Jackson's agent, Mark Stevens, ripped Nelson as a coach and said, "No one trusts Don Nelson." Stevens said Nelson "backstabbed" Chris Mullin. Stevens added unnecessarily, "I just want Jackson out of there now."

This was not a rogue agent speaking out of school. Jackson is too smart to hire that type of person. Unless Jackson fires Stevens immediately, you know this is an orchestrated campaign that has Jackson's backing.

It's probably just as well that the flimsy facade has been destroyed, so everyone doesn't have to pretend that the Warriors can function as a team with its former leader playing with one foot out the door. A fellow could pull a groin that way.

The Warriors' only solution is to trade Jackson, getting little in return and maybe even paying part of his massive contract. They put themselves in this situation by extending Jackson's contract when it wasn't necessary and now they must eat some of that money.

It has come down to bon voyage to Jackson and bon appetit to the Warriors .

The sooner it happens, the better, because Jackson's next step is to say, "Let Nellie guard Kobe."
