Jackson was born in
Port Arthur, Texas
Port Arthur, Texas and spent his childhood there.
Growing up, Jackson was raised by his mother, Judyette, a single
parent who worked two jobs. As a teenager, Jackson worked in his
grandfather's soul food restaurant in Port Arthur, where he would wash
dishes and bus tables. At the age of 16, Jackson's half-brother
Donald Buckner died at 25 years old from head injuries after being
jumped. Following the violent tragedy, Jackson said that he wished he
could have been there to assist and protect a member of his family.
"You can't tell me seeing his brother die that way hasn't had an
effect," recalls Pacers CEO
Donnie Walsh . "To me, it's why he is
always coming to the help of his teammates."
Jackson led Lincoln High School to a state championship in his junior
year before transferring to Oak Hill Academy (
Virginia ), where he
earned All-America honors in 1996. He was the leading scorer in the
1996 McDonald\'s All-American game, on a team that included Kobe
Bryant , Jermaine O\'Neal and Tim Thomas . Following a commitment to
University of Arizona , Jackson was ruled academically
ineligible. He attended Butler County Community College of El
Dorado, Kansas for one semester but did not play basketball there.
CBA AND FOREIGN LEAGUES (1997–2000)
Jackson was selected 42nd overall in the
1997 NBA Draft by the
Phoenix Suns , yet did not receive an opportunity to perform, as he
was waived by the team on October 30. Following this development,
Jackson then saw action in six games with the
La Crosse Bobcats over
two on-and-off seasons in the Continental
Basketball Association (CBA)
, in which he averaged 2.7 points in 12.7 minutes per game.
Additionally, Jackson played four games in 1998 with the Sydney Kings
in Australia's National
Basketball League . Continuing his
basketball journey, Jackson played professionally in
Venezuela and the
Dominican Republic . Throughout the spring and summer of 2000,
Jackson played in those Latin American countries, with the Dominican
Republic teams San Carlos and Pueblo Nuevo and Venezuelan Marinos.
NEW JERSEY NETS (2000–2001)
Jackson did not play an
NBA game until the 2000–01 season with the
New Jersey Nets , officially deemed his rookie season. He appeared in
77 games (including 40 starts), in which he averaged 8.2 points per
game, and established a close friendship with star point guard Stephon
Marbury . Jackson was selected to play in the Schick Rookie Game at
the 2001 All-Star Weekend, in which he tallied 8 points, 5 rebounds, 4
assists and 3 steals in the contest.
SAN ANTONIO SPURS (2001–2003)
Before the 2001–2002
NBA season , he was signed by the San Antonio
Spurs . Following a somewhat successful rookie campaign, Jackson was
hampered by injuries and team expectations in 2001, missing a total of
45 games. Former assistant coach Mike Brown stated: "The first year we
had him in San Antonio, he was on the (injured reserve) most of the
year. At first, he didn't understand why because he probably was the
most talented player we had on that team, but he needed to mature a
little bit so we stuck him there to see how he would respond. He was
the best teammate on our team that first year. He was juiced at
practice ready to play and compete and make the starters better, and
it carried over into his second year when he got his opportunity to
get out onto the floor and prove he could be a vital part of the
organization." His season averages were 3.9 points and 1.1 rebounds,
logging approximately 9.9 minutes per game. See also:

2003 NBA Finals
During the 2002–2003
NBA season , Jackson became a key member of
the Spurs. Appearing in 80 games (58 starts), his season averages were
11.8 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 28.2 minutes per game.
During the team's run in the
2003 NBA Playoffs , Jackson proved to be
a vital asset and helped the Spurs win their second
averaging 12.8 points per game during the playoffs –- the team's 3rd
leading scorer. Jackson's first foray into the playoffs produced
variable results in terms of individual performances. Through the
course of the postseason, Jackson vacillated between fourth quarter
heroics and clutch shooting (elimination games of the Western
Conference Finals versus the
Dallas Mavericks and
NBA Finals versus
New Jersey Nets ) and uneven, mistake-prone play (26 turnovers in
the 6-game championship series).
ATLANTA HAWKS (2003–2004)
In 2003, Jackson became a free agent during the offseason and
expected to parlay his success with the Spurs into a long-term
contract. After rejecting an initial offer by the Spurs, he and his
agent were criticized by sports media for miscalculating the market.
Eventually, Jackson agreed to a 2-year contract with the Atlanta Hawks
. Registering his best professional season to date, Jackson
established season averages of 18.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.1
assists per game in 80 total games (78 starts). On March 12, against
Washington Wizards , Jackson scored a career-best 42 points. In
the 29 games following the All-Star Break, Jackson averaged 24.0
points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.2 steals per game. During
this stretch, he was the NBA's 6th leading scorer.
2003–04 NBA season
2003–04 NBA season , he was traded to the Indiana
Pacers for power forward
Al Harrington (who finished 2nd place in
Sixth Man of the Year voting), after signing a 6-year, $38.3 million

During his first season as a member of the
Indiana Pacers in the
2004–05 NBA season , Jackson tallied averages of 18.7 points, 4.9
rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game. He received a 30-game suspension
from the league after going into the stands and fighting with Detroit
Pistons fans during the infamous Malice at the Palace at The Palace of
Auburn Hills , on November 19, 2004. Following his return from this
lengthy suspension, he averaged 21.7 points per game in a span of 22
games, starting on March 3 (due to an injury to Pacers power forward
Jermaine O\'Neal ).
Indiana's once promising post-season possibilities were marred by the
suspension of starting small forward
Ron Artest . Jackson averaged
18.9 points per game during the first round of the 2005
Boston Celtics . A series loss in the next round at the
hands of the
Detroit Pistons would end the campaign, with Jackson
leading the team in scoring during the playoffs with an average of
16.1 points per game.
2005–06 NBA season , Jackson appeared in 81 games for the
Pacers, averaging 16.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game.
A notable exhibition of Jackson's scoring ability came during a
31-point performance in a midseason victory over the Sacramento Kings
, in which he made 3-pointers on four consecutive possessions. Jackson
tied the Kings franchise record for the most 3-pointers in a quarter
by an opponent. As the playoff push ensued, he tallied an average of
20.2 points per game in the month of April.
On October 6, 2006, there were police reports that Jackson and three
other Pacers players were involved in an argument with several patrons
at Club Rio, a strip club in
Indianapolis . Jackson was punched by one
of the patrons and was hit by a car, rolling onto the hood. His
injuries were considered minor. Jackson says he fired several gunshots
from a 9-mm pistol as an act of self-defense. However, prosecutors
later said he fired first. Jackson was charged October 11, 2006 with
a felony count of criminal recklessness. He served a seven-game
suspension at the beginning of the
2007–08 NBA season as a Warrior
for his legal problems.

Golden State Warriors season Jackson takes
a jump shot during a regular season Warriors game
On January 17, 2007, the Pacers dealt Jackson to the Golden State
Warriors in a blockbuster eight player trade. Along with Al
Šarūnas Jasikevičius , and
Josh Powell , Jackson was
swapped for Mike Dunleavy ,
Troy Murphy ,
Ike Diogu , and Keith McLeod
of the Warriors.
Jackson registered 29 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, and 5 steals in
his Warriors debut, January 20, 2007 versus the
Cleveland Cavaliers .
On February 5, when Golden State traveled to
Conseco Fieldhouse to
compete against Jackson's former team, he tallied 36 points and led
the Warriors to a 113–98 victory over the
Indiana Pacers . Jackson
Vince Carter and
Dominique Wilkins as the only players in 25
years to amass 30 or more points against a team that they played for
earlier in the season. Rejuvenated by the change of scenery, Jackson
averaged 19.6 points and 4.6 assists per game in February – taking
the reins of principal playmaker while star point guard Baron Davis
was injured. Jackson led the team in scoring 3 times during the last 5
games in the regular season, including the season-ending victory over
Portland Trail Blazers that clinched the Warriors' first playoff
berth in 12 seasons.
In the Warriors 4–2 series victory over the
Dallas Mavericks in the
first round of the
2007 NBA Playoffs , Jackson garnered both positive
and negative publicity. In what some consider the biggest upset in NBA
history, Jackson was ejected from Games 2 and 5. The latter decision,
in Game 5, was heavily criticized as Jackson appeared to be merely
applauding at the end of the game to lift the spirits of his
teammates, and not sarcastically at a referee. However, Jackson
redeemed himself by playing well the entire series, especially in the
series-clinching Game 6, where Jackson tallied 33 points on a then
franchise playoff-record 7 three-pointers. The record has since been
broken by both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Also, he continued to
play aggressive defense against eventual MVP recipient
Dirk Nowitzki ,
who was held to 8 points.
Baron Davis , who suffered a slight hamstring injury in the 1st
quarter of Game 6, shares his thoughts regarding Jackson: "I told him
(Stephen Jackson) I'll give it all I got and I didn't want to be the
hardest worker out there. He had to carry me. He is the leader of this
team and if you ask anyone on this team, he is the heart and soul of
this team. He is a big-game performer and he knew just how important
this game was. He is the only one on our team to have won a
championship, so we had to feed off of him." Jackson in the
Warriors "throwback" uniform in 2008.
Jackson finished the series with per-game averages of 22.8 points,
4.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 2.0 steals. In the Conference
Semifinals, the Warriors were dispatched by a physical
Utah Jazz team
in 5 games. Jackson struggled due to the defensive tandem of Andrei
Matt Harpring and his offensive output decreased from
the previous series.
Prior to the 2007–08
NBA season, Jackson (along with guard Baron
Davis and forward
Matt Barnes ) was named a team captain of the
Warriors. Jackson was the recipient of the NBA's Western Conference
Player of the Week award (November 26 – December 2), averaging 23.0
points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 2.8 steals. Despite winning 48
games, the Warriors missed the playoffs in a Western Conference where
all eight playoff teams won at least 50 games (Their 48 wins are the
most of a team that did not qualify for playoffs in
2008–09 NBA season , Jackson registered three games of
at least 30 points and 10 assists in a five-game span – the first
NBA player to do so since
LeBron James in 2007, and the first member
of the Warriors since
Tim Hardaway in 1992. He also tallied his first
career triple double (30 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists) against the
Phoenix Suns in the midst of this stretch, on February 4. On November
17, 2008, Jackson signed a three-year contract extension with the
Jackson's 2008–09 campaign effectively ended when he decided to
determine the root cause of turf toe on his left foot, which had been
ailing him for over 2 years. He underwent surgery on March 31, 2009
to remove multiple bone spurs above the nerve tissue under his big
toe. His per-game season averages were 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.5
assists (2nd only to
LeBron James for forwards), 1.5 steals, and 39.6
minutes (2nd in the league, trailing only Joe Johnson of the Atlanta
CHARLOTTE BOBCATS (2009–2011)
On November 16, 2009, Jackson was traded to the Charlotte Bobcats
Acie Law in exchange for
Raja Bell and Vladimir Radmanović
. Jackson set a Bobcats franchise record with 43 points scored versus
Houston Rockets , on January 12, 2010. The
NBA recognized Jackson
as the Eastern Conference's Player of the Week on January 17, after he
averaged 29.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 3.3 steals. In
tandem with forward
Gerald Wallace , Jackson led the Bobcats to the
franchise's first playoff appearance (culminating in a 4–0 series
loss at the hands of the
Orlando Magic ). In league MVP voting,
Jackson finished in 12th place, tied with
Chris Bosh , Joe Johnson ,
Chauncey Billups .
2010-11 NBA season , Jackson recorded the first triple double
(24 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists) in Bobcats team history
Phoenix Suns on November 20, 2010. However, Jackson failed
to lead the Bobcats to the playoffs in 2011 and expressed
disappointment with the team following a midseason trade of Gerald
MILWAUKEE BUCKS (2011–2012)
On June 23, 2011, after only two seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats,
Jackson was traded to the
Milwaukee Bucks as part of a three-way deal

Charlotte Bobcats . As part of the
Milwaukee Bucks received Jackson,

in the 2011
Bismack Biyombo , from Sacramento. Sacramento
John Salmons from Milwaukee and the rights to Jimmer Fredette

Jackson's brief stint with Milwaukee would be characterized by
dysfunction and underwhelming play. Due to recurring issues with his
hamstring throughout the lockout-extended offseason and several
publicized clashes with coach
Scott Skiles , Jackson's role and
playing time diminished. On March 13, 2012, Jackson was traded back
Golden State Warriors along with
Andrew Bogut , in exchange for
Monta Ellis ,
Ekpe Udoh , and
Kwame Brown .
RETURN TO SAN ANTONIO (2012–2013)
Without playing a game for the Warriors, Jackson was traded to the
Richard Jefferson ,
T.J. Ford and a conditional first round
pick on March 15, 2012. Due to the ascendant performance of rookie
Kawhi Leonard , Jackson was a second-unit player for the first
time in nearly 10 years. A re-adjustment period to San Antonio's
structured offensive system caused Jackson's minutes to fluctuate in
the regular season and playoffs.
The Spurs capped off an excellent regular season by reaching the
Western Conference Playoffs as the highest seed. Ultimately, San
Antonio lost 4 games to 2 to the
Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western
Conference Finals . In this series, Jackson was used more prominently
and drew praise for his defensive efforts against league scoring
Kevin Durant . In the elimination game of the series,

playoffs, Jackson shot 53.5% from the field, 60.5% from three-point
range, and 93.3% from the free throw line.

Ibaka via Twitter.

Led the league, among qualified players
Generally, a modern-day
NBA swingman provides a multitude of skills.
Jackson is certainly no exception, as evidenced by his overall
ability. Although he is known to be a somewhat streaky outside
shooter, Jackson's scoring range extends from the basket to the
3-point line. Additionally, against smaller players, he is often
utilized in the post (where he is either double-teamed and creates an
open shot for a teammate or is able to manufacture a mid-range
jumper). Despite spurts of inefficient, turnover-prone play, Jackson
has proved a capable playmaking option, with above-average passing
abilities and court vision. Defensively, Jackson is considered among
the better perimeter defenders in the league, due to his toughness,
long wingspan, and awareness.
Larry Brown , a member of the
Basketball Hall of Fame and former head
coach of the
Charlotte Bobcats , readily acknowledges Jackson's
ability: "You ask anyone in the league – Stephen is an elite player.
He's as bright as anyone I've coached." Former Golden State Warriors
Don Nelson , the winningest coach in
articulates this brief summation of Jackson's game: "I don't think
that people realize how good a player Jackson is, he guards every
night, he makes plays, he can shoot, and the only thing that he
doesn't do is rebound. He makes everyone around him better."
Jackson's coach during his Indiana days,
Rick Carlisle , describes
Jackson as a "terrific all-around player... He's an experienced guy,
strong and quick. He has a good understanding of the game on the
defensive side of the ball."
NBA legend and former Pacers president
Larry Bird calls Jackson the toughest player in the league, regarding
injuries and subsequently playing through the pain. Bird also praised
Jackson's ability to "do every aspect of the game at a high level."
Theo Ratliff , a former Bobcats teammate, asserted that "if he is not
an All-Star in this league, I don't know who is. It is time people
recognize what he does on the floor."
PERSONAL LIFE AND REPUTATION
Stemming from the two referenced incidents in 2004 and 2006, Jackson
has been charged with felony criminal recklessness and a number of
misdemeanors, including assault, disorderly conduct, and two counts of
Tim Duncan once labeled Jackson as the "ultimate teammate" during
Jackson's first stint in San Antonio.
ESPN analyst and sportswriter
Michael Smith finds Jackson to be "articulate, charming, and
Marcus Thompson of the
Contra Costa Times conveys his opinion as
such: "He takes the younger players under his wing, taking them
shopping, dispensing advice, lending an ear. What's more, he does the
little things that are unbecoming of a millionaire. He looks people in
the eye when they talk to him, as if he cares about what they're
saying. He frequently doles out handshakes, half-hugs and, to women,
pecks on the cheek. He returns phone calls. He mends fences, lifts
spirits, makes others feel special." Following a community outreach
event, Gwen Knapp of the
San Francisco Chronicle stated that "
couldn't have been more charming or more engaged, the perfect face of
the franchise." A ONE AND ONLY, AS IT SHOULD BE. “ ” Hall of
Fame inductee and former
Rick Carlisle and
Don Nelson have constantly referred
to Jackson's high character. During an appearance on the Jim Rome
radio show, Nelson alluded to Jackson in a laudatory manner beyond the
limited scope of the NBA. Former Pacers executive
Donnie Walsh , who
was principally responsible for the Golden State trade, stated "I love
Jack to death. He's emotional and he's going to get technicals. But
that's just part of the package. He's a great team guy."
During his 7-game suspension to begin the
2007–08 NBA season ,
Jackson donated a significant portion of his time towards community
service in the
Oakland area, organizing several events geared mainly
towards children. Additionally, during a game against the Toronto
Raptors , Jackson paid tribute to forward
Matt Barnes and his ailing
mother whom he had left to support in her battle against cancer, by
wearing the number 22 on his headband. Jackson also offered to miss
his return from suspension if Barnes needed the support at home.
Throughout his tenure in Golden State, Jackson attended Bible study
with teammates such as
Kelenna Azubuike ,
Al Harrington , and Brandan
Wright . Pairing up with
Southwest Airlines , Jackson and the
Warriors organization arranged an essay contest for elementary school
students from his hometown of Port Arthur, which gave 10 third-graders
the opportunity to meet Jackson and receive tickets to the following
NBA recognized Jackson for his ongoing charitable causes and
presented him with the league's Community Assist Award for March 2008.
During the month, he participated in a Silence the Violence rally,
teamed up with
Grammy Award -winner
John Legend to raise funds for the
Show Me Campaign, participated in a groundbreaking for a basketball
court, and launched his own foundation. In conjunction with the Good
Tidings Foundation, Jackson unveiled the
Stephen Jackson Basketball
Court at Omega Boys Club in
San Francisco ,
California on April 11,
2008. Additionally, in honor of Jackson's continued commitment to the
Bay Area community,
San Francisco Mayor
Gavin Newsom proclaimed
Saturday, April 12, 2008 – the day after the unveiling – as
Stephen Jackson Day.
Jackson established the
Stephen Jackson Academy of Art, Science, and
Technology in the summer of 2008. New construction for the school was
completed in 2009; as of 2012, the academy offers after-school
programs for local children and houses a gymnasium for public use. In
order to pursue educational accreditation , Jackson plans to expand
the academy. According to
The Port Arthur News , new construction will
likely commence by the end of 2012. For several years, Jackson has
held an annual basketball camp for local children in the Port Arthur
In December 2011, under the alias Stak5, Jackson released a rap
mixtape entitled "What's a Lockout?" hosted by DJ Scream of Maybach
Music Group . The mixtape included guest appearances by various
artists, including hip-hop legend Scarface . Imani Showalter,
Jackson's ex-fiancee and mother of two of his children, is a cast
Basketball Wives: LA , a reality show airing on American
cable television network
VH1 . In 2012, he released a song called
