    Jackson is averaging 20 ppg on 44/37/86% for the year to go with 6.6 assist, 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game in just 31 minutes and only 3.2 turnovers on the year.

    Damn, poor OKC. Looks like they got robbed for another allstar. I mean Kanter, Singler are okay but OKC really should have just payed him and started him at the SG like he asked for.

    The dream team that never happened.

    Westbrook
    Jackson
    Harden
    Durant
    Ibaka

    Jackson/Drummond are going to be a really fun combo for years to come though.

    IIRC, he wanted a starting role and to get paid. OKC wanted him to come off the bench and didn't want to pay him as much as he wanted... And then he started wanting out with the hate and trash talk towards the team. Pretty sure if OKC would have accommodated him properly he would still happily be there, same deal with Harden.

    OKC has repeatedly F'd up.

    I think Reggie Jackson is an awful player and if he's an all star this year it would be a travesty. The number of boneheaded decisions he makes and his bad defence is mindblowing.

    Tend to agree. Whenever I have watched him he comes across as a chucker

    Reggie stinks. SVG even made Jameer Nelson look good.

    Based on yesterday's performance, OKC really didn't miss much.

    The guy chucked bad shots after bad shots and he had two consecutive boneheaded turnovers which quickly put the game out of reach.

    For as much the East has improved it still sucks since it has Jackson as player of the week for multiple weeks.

    Well its not like his numbers aren't up to par... His weekly averages are basically Hardens numbers but effecient with a winning record... So its pretty deserving.

    Drummond ftw. What to say about Jackson. That he as often loses his teams games as much he abuses the pnr with drummond and gets his stats up?
    That he is not a good defender and horrible decision maker? That he isn't a good defender? So many good things to say about him. Hopefully he won't be an all star this year otherwise what a farce the east is.

    Reggie has a good shot at going to the ASG this year. We are proud of him.
