Stephen Jackson Said DeMarre Carroll Isn't 'Good Enough To Have An Opinion'

One of the reasons: Captain Jack simply tells it like it is. Whereas some analysts are wary of hurting others' feelings, Jackson just shares what's on his mind - unfiltered.

Carroll was recently traded to the Nets in a salary-cap clearing move by the Raptors. He can say whatever he wants about his current or former teams.

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey may have refuted any idea that there was mistrust in his locker room last season, but that hasn't stopped fans and media alike from weighing in on the matter from all corners, including former National Basketball Association players.

These seem like thinly veiled shots at the Raptors' stars, Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, and Jackson thought they were unnecessary.

"DeMarre Carroll, why are you even talking", Jackson said. By the sounds of it, though, the underlying message here from both Jackson and Pierce is that unless you're considered above a role player in the league by your peers, or, at the very least, well respected, don't be shooting your mouth off after you leave a team. Play defense. You're Bruce Bowen. Just go in the corner and shoot threes and be happy. You shouldn't even have an input, you're not good! He's not. Everybody has a voice in the National Basketball Association now.

If you've heard him discuss these kinds of topics before, you know Jackson isn't one to mince words.

Although Jackson went quite a bit over the top with his own comments, he does hold a valid point.

Their point is fair: Carroll is a nice rotation player, but why trash your former team on the way out - particularly when your former team was relatively successful? Check out their takes below. It just makes you look salty.
