OAKLAND, Calif. — "Captain Jack" is no longer.
Disgruntled Golden State swingman Stephen Jackson asked to relinquish his captain title during a meeting Tuesday with Warriors coach Don Nelson and general manager Larry Riley.
Nelson accepted on the heels of Jackson's two-game suspension for an outburst at the coach early in Friday's preseason game against the Lakers in Los Angeles.
Jackson, who has asked to be traded, acknowledged he didn't think Nelson and the coaching staff were supporting him with the referees in a physical matchup with Kobe Bryant.
Jackson, the Warriors' leading scorer last season, picked up five fouls and a technical in less than 10 minutes and was sent to the locker room by Nelson following a testy exchange.
