In this installment, featuring the Golden State Warriors of the short-lived Jackson-Corey Maggette era, Jackson is kicked out of a 2009 Suns game for, what else? Being himself.
Only this time Warriors coach Don Nelson one-ups Jackson a few plays later with his own ridiculous ejection from the game. That’s our Nellie.
Drew Gooden, apparently, really did deserve a break today. Gooden is suspended for tonight’s T-Wolves game, punishment for thwacking Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson in the head as Henderson drove for a layup. Read all about it.
The John Salmons watch. I was one who thought Salmons was going to bounce back and have a solid season, reminding Bucks fans of the Fish who led us into the playoffs 2010. Alas, somebody had to go to move the above-mentioned Maggette out of Milwaukee and Salmons (and a Kings draft pick) was the bait that got it done.
Salmons and the Tyreke Evans-led Sacramento Kings beat the Lakers last night, 100-91. Fish had 13 and more importantly, clocked in 30 minutes guarding a relatively inefficient Kobe Bryant (14 missed shots), Metta World Peace and … Devin Ebanks.
