What Started The Warriors-Jackson Beef?

With his two-game suspension coming to an end, forwardStephen Jackson said Monday he is ready to rejoin theWarriors. It began in Friday’s exhibition against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Forum. Jackson and the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant were locked up against each other in the first quarter. The competition became testy, and Jackson picked up five fouls and a technical foul in the quarter. Jackson voiced his anger at the coaching staff when he was taken out of the game at the 2:50 mark of the quarter. Jackson said he was upset because the coaches left him in the game despite his foul trouble, and he felt they didn’t stick up for him with the replacement referees.
