Quick thoughts:
Remember, Anthony Morrow plays for New Jersey now. Do not leave him open – the Nets may have lost the other night, but not because of Morrow, as he hit 3 of 6 from three. For the season, Anthony is making 41% – and that makes this an off-year, as he is shooting 45% from deep for his career.

From Rick Bonnel’s blog, Inside the NBA – Stephen Jackson’s open letter to fans:

People do not like to admit they are wrong, but my actions in Milwaukee last week resulted in an ejection and ultimately an NBA suspension for the next game. As a result, I let myself, my teammates and my coaches down, but more importantly, I let our fans down. In my heart, I know I have to adjust my emotions on the floor and I vow to work harder than ever to not put myself or this team in that situation again.

That’s just part of it, so go read the rest. The good news is that Stephen is saying the right things – now if he’ll do that on the court for a while, there won’t be a need to start worrying about him reaching 16 techs for the season.
