Only difference is the timing. Very strategic if you ask me, but who knows what's going on behind the scenes. Jackson has a history of outbursts alot more than Pop though.

I could have sworn Finley left way before Jefferson arrived.

He left the season RJ got there, but Finley sprained his ankle that december and came back later to a small role, then around march 1 was waived.

On a side note, can you believe Finley is still getting paid roughly 5 million per year by Cuban/Mavs till 2015?
