Bobby's back

Bobby Jackson looked around the Kings locker room and realized how much it has changed.
Besides a major remodel since he's been away, there were also different names on nearly every locker.
"It's very different," Jackson said during today's news conference at Arco Arena as the Kings welcomed back the popular player.
But for Jackson, this is still home.
"I've always loved purple," said Jackson, who was happy to see his No. 24 jersey was available upon his return to Sacramento.

Here are a few notes from today's news conference:

* Jackson's plan is still to play one to three years before getting into coaching.
"I'm not trying to get into it right now," Jackson said. "My main focus right now is basketball. Everyone knows what I want to do. I've played a long time and think I can do it. I have a lot of good qualities. I studied the game just like I played the game. I feel like I have a lot to offer on the coaching side."

* With his career timeline in focus, Jackson fielded questions on his legacy. What does he want to be remembered for after his playing days are over?
"A guy who played hard and took care of his family," he said.

* Speaking of family, Jackson and his wife are expecting their fifth child.

* Jackson will sign autographs at the California State Fair on Friday. The meet-and-greet is from 6-7 p.m. inside Building D, space 596.

* Below is video from today's news conference.
