    Bestbuck36 Kyle Young man crush. Not ashamed

    Damn! Those stats are starter material. I'd thought he had lost some skills over the years but it appears not. Way to go JJ!

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Lakers signed free agent swingman Jim Jackson on Monday and waived forward Slava Medvedenko to make room on the roster.

    Terms of Jackson's contract were not released, general manager Mitch Kupchak said.

    Jackson was in Los Angeles and was to be in uniform for Monday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs, the Lakers said. He did not take part in the team's shootaround earlier in the day, so it was unknown if he would play.

    Jackson, who was waived by the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, is a 13-year NBA veteran with career averages of 14.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 872 games.

    "Jim Jackson has been a solid player for many years in the NBA and we feel he'll be a good addition to our team," Kupchak said in a statement. "Being such a young team, he gives us veteran savvy as well as the ability to play multiple positions."

    Jackson, 35, was taken by the Dallas Mavericks as the fourth pick in the 1992 NBA draft. He's played for 11 teams and had appeared in just 27 games for Phoenix this year, averaging 3.7 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists in 15.6 minutes.

    Medvedenko, 6-foot-10, played in two games this season before hurting his back on Nov. 9, 2005, in a game against Minnesota.

    He was a member of the Lakers' 2001 and 2002 championship teams and has career averages of 5.4 points and 2.9 rebounds.

    Well, JJ will get a few minutes of national TV time now whenever the Lakers are on.

    And hopefully we never have to hear Screamin' A. Smith say Slava's name again.

    Thanks Sushi -

    Ask the question and it gets answered. Haven't seen JJ play yet for the Lakers, but when it gets into the stretch run he'll play. Hope he finds a home at last. Still, I won't drive the four hours to LA to see him riding the pine.

    It's been so long, you forget how "springy" JJ used to be. Easily one of the best to ever pass through Ohio's HS and college ranks. All kinds of nonsense derailed his pro career from becoming as great as it seemed it could have been...but playing over 12 years in the league and scoring all those points is nothing to be disappointed in...thanks for the video. That's vintage JJ, no doubt.

    Which NBA teams hasn't JJ been on? Man, I feel bad for the guy. He can't stay in one place.

    KNICKS LOOK AT VETERAN JACKSON

    By MARC BERMAN
    March 2, 2007 -- The Knicks have explored signing free agent swingman Jimmy Jackson to fill the massive void left by Jamal Crawford's season-ending stress fracture injury, The Post has learned.
    Jackson, 36, is a burly 6-foot-6 and could play small forward or shooting guard. He is known around the league as a player with good character. Jackson played last season for the Suns and Lakers, but was not picked up this year. He has been working out at his home in Toledo, Ohio.

    Good read from Kyle Lamb where Jim describes some good memories from his tOSU days and also discusses Coach Matta's effort to bring back former players to be involved in the program.

    Growing up in Toledo, Jim was the man!

    His Freshman year, there was a rule that, during city league competition, you were aloud to play a total of five combined JV and Varsity quarters in the same night.

    JJ would sometimes play the 4th period of the JV game if Macomber (his school) was behind, mop the floor with everybody to assure victory, then hit the locker room and play 4 quarters for the varsity, of course dropping around 20 and filling up the rest of the stat sheet as a 6'5" 15 year-old.

    It was a pleasure witnessing what he did athletically and as a positive example for us impressionable black youth.
