Beyond The Buzzer:
Stephen Jackson, who says a disagreement with Gregg Popovich contributed to him being waived before the start of the playoffs, says he asked to be traded before the All-Star Break.
According to Sister 2 Sister:
“We had a disagreement,” Stephen told Sister 2 Sister about his most recent coach Gregg Popovich. “He wanted me to agree to players being better than me, and I didn’t agree. I’ve been in the NBA a long time, so it’s just something I didn’t agree with and something I have no control over.
“It was talked about before the all-star break, before the trade deadline…about me not wanting to be here and me going to other teams, but they wouldn’t do it then,” Stephen explained. “If they would have done it then, I would be on another team right now.”

The Lakers will face the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs and Metta World Peace paid Gregg Popovich a very humorous compliment about his coaching acumen.

Before the San Antonio Spurs tipped off against the Golden State Warriors, Gregg Popovich got asked if he was that dreaded word again. He was asked if he was "happy" with the team's play going into the playoffs this season.

Gregg Popovich knows his San Antonio Spurs are struggling for the first time in a long time heading into the playoffs. The team hasn't been making their shots and have been unreliable on defense. Tim Duncan has had to play as close as he can to the vintage MVP-like player he used to be to even keep the Spurs in the game, let alone to win it.
Coach Pop made known his concern...
Stephen Jackson should just not speak and take the loss on this one, because making statements like this can only hinder him from moving forward and finding employment elsewhere.
Unfortunately for Jackson and the San Antonio Spurs, his second stint with the organization, didn’t go as well as the first. Jackson was released by the team right before the playoffs began because...
If there's one thing we know about San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, it's that all he cares about is winning, no matter how pretty or ugly he has to do it.
And that includes implementing "Hack-a-Howard."
Popovich will find himself in several spots to utilize this tactic when the Spurs open their first round playoff match-up Sunday against Dwight Howard...
Stephen Jackson’s release by the San Antonio Spurs last week came as a shock to many. Nobody saw it coming, and many people were led to believe that Jackson was happy being part of the San Antonio organization. That clearly was not the case — at least not recently.
The day he was released, Jackson hinted at a possible conflict with coach Gregg Popovich.
