After the Golden State Warriors' 99-88 upset victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday, Warriors swingman Stephen Jackson clarified recent remarks made to teammates in recent weeks that suggested his love affair with Oakland and the Warriors was over.

After Stephen Jackson scored 28 points in a win over the Celtics on Friday, he said his recent frustration is not a sign he wants to be traded.
Yes, Jackson and coach Don Nelson had words a couple of weeks ago when Nelson told him his poor play was hurting the team.

Yes, Jackson told teammates that if the Warriors' current spiral were to continue, he wouldn't oppose being sent elsewhere.

But he took issue with anyone interpreting those incidents as his way of demanding a trade. He said he remains indebted to the Warriors for giving him a three-year $28 million extension this fall and naming him a team captain last season, the first such honor in his nine-year career...
