Spurs coach Gregg Popovich opted to hold Stephen Jackson out of Tuesday's 107-100 victory over the Suns, erring as he often does on the side of rest for his older players.
The ultra-competitive 33-year-old swingman promised he wouldn't fight Popovich on the decision.
On one condition.
"Just as long as they don't list me as 'DND-Old,' " Jackson said with a laugh.
That was the official designation given Tim Duncan two nights earlier, when Popovich chose to hold the 35-year-old power forward out of a win over Philadelphia. The DND stands for "did not dress."
