Along with his buddy Tru Warier Ron Artest Golden State Warrior multipurpose swingman Stephen Jackson will be suspended for the first 7 games of the 2007- 2008 NBA Season (see NBA.com) as a consequence for that crazy night in Indiana (it's crazy that Jackson actually thought he could have a good time in that Confederate state- yes, Fuzzy and I saw way too many Confederate flags when we drove through there a few years back).
Given all the games missed to injury last season for the Warriors and the perpetual injury bug that oddly haunts this franchise, in some goofy way this may be actually be a blessing in disguise. By game 8 of this upcoming season some Warrior is probably going to need a rest and Action Jackson will be fresh from a 7 game vacation to step right in and shut down some other team's big time scorer with his D and check to make sure the refs' ears are working properly.

Stay tuned for Stephen Jackson's 2006-2007 GSoM Report Card...
Is the 7 game suspension fair?
