View Full Version : Why has nobody picked up Jim Jackson?
I thought he sort of rejuvinated himself with Miami last year, but he still has no takers.

Why has nobody picked up Jim Jackson?
Why has noone posted in this thread?
I think the answer to both questions is the same.
You can't tell me there isn't a team out there he could help. He had a nice year with Miami last year.
Are you telling me Dooby that a guy who can bring 11 points a game, 5.5 rebounds, and shoot 47% from three like he did last year should not be able to find a job. Just need a clarification.

actually, like I've said before, I would have liked to see him back with the Mavs this year, but what can you do. Everybody else just wants to talk about Wang...go figure.

I am thinking the same reason JR Rider cant get a job. Both talented but there are risks into taking them.
Obviously JJ has had his share of problems, but I thought he was on his best behavior last year. I think I even rememer reading a couple articles where Riley was pretty comlimentary towards him.
Who knows there could be more to the story. He will get picked up by somebody before the season is up.

I was being fecesious.
In truth, Jackson is an average player these days; he could help somebody and I expect he does make it on somebody's roster sooner or later. But because of the luxury tax, it just isn't worth it for some teams right now. If a player goes down to injury, I expect Jackson to be acquired.
That, or there is a personal issue we aren't aware of.

8 teams in 6 seasons speaks volumes on what kind of a teammate he is, IMHO

Not that anyone was deadly opposed to Jackson in November, but there was no rally cry for him. People knew why he wasn't being picked up. Sac got lucky and now everyone regrets it.

Called it right. Just wish it wasn't the Kings that pulled the trigger.

Jackson has a reputation of turning over the ball too much. Also he sucks.

He didn't suck last night.

The best time to mention a player is right after he has a big game.
