Jimmy Jackson’s Journey for Respect Coming to an End?

ESPN the Magazine has come through with two good NBA features in their latest issue. The first deals with my favorite player in the world, Manu Ginobili, and the San Antonio Spurs. The second story is dedicated to Jimmy Jackson’s journeys through the league in the last 13 years. Jackson has always been somewhat of an underrated, underappreciated player in my book. His play in this year’s playoffs with the Suns has again been exceptional, but at 34, he is probably past the point of being anything more than a one-year stop gap player. I still recall Jackson’s solid performances with the Heat in 2001-2002. With Miami still deficient at small forward, I hope Riley and Van Gundy make a push for him this off-season.
