08:17 PM ET 01.02 | Stephen Jackson's 26-game Milwaukee Bucks career was tumultuous, and it ended on bad terms. Now, with his new team, the San Antonio Spurs, coming back to Milwaukee, Jackson did not hold back when asked about those 26 games. "I just wanted to be around a positive organization that's used to winning and plays the game the right way," Jackson said. "Milwaukee, they're not used to winning. I just wasn't going to go for it at the end of my career." Jackson was traded to the Warriors and then immediately re-routed to the Spurs at last year's trade deadline.

Steven Jackson is a punk.

SJax sucks at this point....he is dead weight- a contract that has been thrown around- SA cant wait until his horrible deal is done for- and the last bad taste in their mouth from the absurd Jefferson extension is gone

SA's one attempt to add a big time player to their 3 main guys was Jefferson- total fail- and that led to SJax who is nothing but a decent role player at this point that makes way too much money

Jackson is still a good role player off the bench, but the Spurs have way too many All-Stars on their rocking chair to reach the Finals.

Just remembering the Lew Alcindor (Kareem Abdul Jabar) and Oscar Robertson era with the Bucks.

The interns are at it again...the story is about Stephen Jackson...and they show a picture of Steven Jackson...but the name UNDER the picture is...Chris Humphreys? Really? Seems like someone else needs their coffee this morning too...lol

As for the story...truth hurts sometimes...but sometimes it is better to say nothing at all...know what I mean?

Yep, the Bucks have been worth watching for 5 of their 44 years of existence.
