an edited transcript of an interview with former warrior stephen jackson:q: why do the warriors mean so much to you?a: we’ve all played for a lot of teams, but not every team makes you feel like you’re a family. not all organizations make you feel appreciated for what you’ve done for the organization. things ended kinda rocky for me, but most people respected it because i wanted to win, and anytime someone wants to win, that’s respected. i think when we came there, we all were journeymen, we all wanted to feel appreciated and we all appreciated each other, and it turned into something great. to have a coach like don nelson who believed in all of us and gave us all the confidence made it all work in the end.q: (vice president of communications) raymond ridder has invited you, baron ...
