Jay Mohr asked the Clippers forward Stephen Jackson if he could become the missing veteran, tough guy piece, they need to win the West: "That’s the way I play the game. That’s the way I came into the game, I play hard on both ends and I try to play harder than anybody on the court. No coach has to tell me to play hard, no coach has to tell me to go out there and defend."

He added, "This is just how I approach the game. I'm not going out there to make any friends. I'm going to play basketball and win and if anyone has a problem with it, we can handle that too."
