Instead of contending for title with Spurs, losing with Hawks

ATLANTA (AP) -- The premise seems preposterous: A player is rewarded with a $9 million contract offer by the team he just helped win an NBA title, yet he turns it down to sign for less money with one of the league's worst teams.

Amazingly, that is exactly what happened to Stephen Jackson.

He started 58 games last season and averaged 11.8 points as the San Antonio Spurs tied for the best record in the Western Conference and won their second championship in five years.

------------------

Actually it's a lot more positive article than the beginning and title sound like. It talks a lot about how the Hawks and Jackson seem to be improving their attitudes of late, and that's translating into on-court success.

17 points at the half right now for Jackson..... He is definately going thru a good stretch in the last couple of games or so.
