    As reward for playing a great game, Jimmy Jackson is getting traded to the awful Hornets for Wesley.

    Sorry Jimmy, good luck in turning that team around.
     
  2. sucks! I thought he was going to have a longer term in Houston...
    I live near Toledo, and he is still a god there, and everyone has been proud of the job he was doing this year. Oh well, that's bizness!

    JJ may set the record form most NBA teams played for if he keeps this up.

    That is too bad.

    I used to work at the rec center in college and he and the guys would come in to play pick up and he was always very nice back then, not sure about now but still wish him luck, he will definitely need it in NO.

    Jim has been living out of a suitcase since he left Ohio State. I met him at an airport a few years back...right after he left the Sixers.

    This is his 11th NBA team I believe.

    ScriptOhio Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    The guy has averaged 15.2 ppg over his 12 year NBA career. You would think that he should have been able to find a team that actually wanted him. Maybe he isn't the great "team player" that I always thought he was. I remember that Jackson and Jason Kidd got into a "squabble" when they both played for Dallas.

    Just curious, did he ever graduate from OSU?

  11. yeah JJ's pretty much all we've got...that and Cara from that Road Rules Pacific Islands :cool: ..even though i couldn't stand her.

    anywya i think it's a credit to JJ that so many teams see the value in him and will trade for him despite this record of never staying put anywhere. he's a solid, consistent player and you can't have all superstars on your team...every team needs a JJtype player too....plus atleast he gets to live in some nice weather cities...

    Glad to see JJ in PHX. That would be a great place to finish his career. I just read that he hit 5 threes last night.

    JJ has bounced around the league for a factor other than skills. His contracts have always been short and easy to move for the bad teams on which he has played, so he is often included in trades when the bad teams try to get some youth or picks. Teams like Portland, Sacramento, and Houston pick him up in order to try for playoff runs that season, but he isn't really in their long-term plans. I was surprised that Houston had him on their roster to start the season based on how he's always been treated!

    Phoenix, like Sacramento, is a good fit for him, and hopefully he has great success in their playoff run this season. He's one of the all-time greats in HS and OSU history, and he's still an entertaining baller.

    JJ is getting some run with Quentin Richardson hurt for the Suns. Should be nice to see if he can play on a team that finally makes it past the conference finals.

    25 points on 7 threes, with 6 rebounds on 4/11 against the Lakers. 35 minutes.

    20 points, 7-9 shooting, 6 threes, 8 rebounds on 4/13 against the Hornets. 43 minutes.

    He'll get 25 or 30 minutes a game in the playoffs.
