So I suspect lots of us felt like Duncan’s former Spurs teammate Stephen Jackson late Thursday, staring at the screen and wishing we had a Timmy Cam showing nothing but No. 21’s every twitch. “I wish you could have seen me,” Jackson, now one of my ESPN teammates, said over the phone. “I was [pressed] right up against the TV, like, ‘Dang, my boy, this could be it.’ I’m just standing there trying to look at Timmy’s face. “I hate to see him go … if he goes. Dave [David Robinson] went out with a championship and I think Tim deserved the same. But how much better can you be? How much more can you give to the game? He’s the best power forward to ever play this game.

Last week, Stephen Jackson made a bold declaration. “My Warriors team would beat today’s Warriors team,” Jackson said. “I guarantee that. I guarantee that.” What does Kelenna Azubuike think about that? “I totally disagree. I love Stack Jack. He has a lot of pride. He loves that ‘We Believe’ team. But this team is just better,” Azubuike said on KNBR 1050 on Tuesday. “They have more closers, they close better, they’re better in crunch time. Yeah, we beat No. 1 seed Dallas Mavericks, but that next Utah series, we couldn’t make free throws when they counted, we just couldn’t close them out. We lost some games we should have won.”

Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson told ESPN’s Mike & Mike on Thursday that Curry’s success is largely due to today’s style of play, which isn’t as physical as back in the day. Retired players Stephen Jackson (2006-07 Warriors) and Cedric Ceballos (1993-94 Suns) both have said their former teams could have beaten the Warriors team. The Warriors. At 52-5, Golden State has the best record in NBA history after 57 games. “It’s starting to get a little annoying just because it’s kind of unwarranted from across the board. We have a very competent group, and we have fun when we’re out there on the floor, and it shows, obviously. We enjoy what we do. But for the most part, you don’t hear us talking about, you know, comparing ourselves to other great teams and ‘We could beat this team, we’re better than this team.’ We’re living in the moment,” Curry said on the “Warriors Plus/Minus” podcast by the Bay Area News Group on Friday.
