We already had some of the specifics about the confrontation between Stephen Jackson and coach Don Nelson that led to a two game suspension, but Mercury News’ Talking Points has the play-by-play.
Apparently, it wasn’t Jackson yelling at Nelson that got him suspended, but what happened after the coach tried to calm down his player:
Nelson told Jackson to head back to the locker room, take a shower and cool down.
Nelson apparently also put his hand on Jackson at the same time, to settle the situation (he thought).
Jackson immediately roughly brushed off Nelson’s hand, and, according to the source, told him loudly never to do that again and included many more angry words directed at Nelson.
Jackson went to the locker room and stayed there, apparently without further incident. But Warriors management apparently was concerned enough to keep Jackson away from Nelson for at least a few hours.
