"My ultimate goal is always to win a championship ... (but) whatever is the next move is the next move," Jackson told USA TODAY Sports. "I'm just going to be here and be the best player I can be, day in and day out. When I go on the court I hope it shows. I want to compete at the highest level, always trying to get better. But if you have to move, it is what it is. USA Today Sports

The original deal would have sent Stephenson to Brooklyn, Nets center Brook Lopez to the Oklahoma City Thunder and various Nets and Thunder players – possibly point guard Jarrett Jack and shooting guard Jeremy Lamb – to the Hornets. A knowledgeable source told the Observer Friday morning that the deal was dormant, if not dead. The Nets pulled away from negotiations and are now exploring other options to move Lopez’s contract.

Westbrook has apparently grown tired of the media and adopted the Marshawn Lynch plan of interview attack, answering each question basically the same way, regardless of what it was or who it came from. It started after he was ejected against the Suns a few weeks back. As he was prodded about the circumstances surrounding his two technicals, Westbrook continually said “It was a good win for us.” Oklahoman

Alex Kennedy: When Russell Westbrook was much younger, I tried to do a one-on-one interview with him on the road. Awful idea. I got all one-word answers. I don't blame players for not wanting to do some interviews. They have bad days and are people too. But being a jerk 24/7? That bothers me. Twitter @AlexKennedyNBA

Ohm Youngmisuk: Sources say Nets have decided they cannot move forward on any trade until there is more of a consensus in the organization... The whole Nets organization still isn’t convinced it wants to take the Lance gamble. And a trade with OKC doesn’t give Nets enough... for now. That said, Nets' trade talk has been so active recently that possibility remains that talks can resume at any point. And, as all this is going on, Nets franchise is gauging interest in potential buyers which makes you wonder about the future of franchise. Twitter @NotoriousOHM



Kevin Durant may end up claiming the No. 1 spot, but for now it belongs to Gary Payton.
