Well, it's official-- Stephen Jackson is the newest member of the Indiana Pacers, having been acquired from Atlanta in exchange for one of my favorite players, Al Harrington.
It's a sad day for me, I'll admit. I'm sorry to see Al go, even if he did drive me nuts with all this bullshit “I wanna start or else” crap and even if he thought the word “pass” is something you do to a car on the highway. He's still a great guy, I think, and an excellent player, and he'll be missed.
Having said that... welcome aboard, Stevie Jackson! I'm gonna be rooting very hard for you to succeed... I'm sure you'll find a great home here! Best of luck to ya!

I'm not positive BUT I believe when Abdul Wahad signed his current contract he was still a starter and therefore his numbers were better than they are now, but now he's back to backup and he IS overpaid.
