Some quotes:

"I don't want these young guys to try to follow me," Jackson said. "I can't be a role model to guys who make the same amount of money as me. We're all in the NBA. I don't want to be a role model.

"Control your own game and what you do. Anytime I say something or get suspended, I don't blame it on coaches or teammates. I man up, take it and am responsible. I think everybody should be responsible for their own game, how they prepare and how they play. Don't look at me to get you going. Don't look at me to get the team going. I think everybody is responsible for themselves, and that's how it should be."

"Being captain was overrated to me, anyway," Jackson said. "You don't do anything but go out before the game and talk to the refs. I don't want to do that, anyway.
Jackson would consider a buyout if "it's right." But ge doesn't think it will happen. He is also cool with them sending him home with pay
