Depending on which source you read, Jackson has been mentioned to be headed to the Celtics
or the Suns. Whichever route he takes, he will probably have to earn a
job with a non-guaranteed contract. He will have to prove he still has
flashes of brilliance.
Here's hoping he has some spring left in
his step, another season in him and that he is properly honored by the
Kings when he retires.
Might as well just get the "Bobby Jackson doesn't care about winning" post together now for when he inevitably chooses Phoenix like everyone else. People say we're old here in Boston… but Phoenix is like an NBA graveyard right now.
In other news, the first couple of power rankings are out. Predictably, the Lakers are #1 in the Sporting News and ESPN polls… and I'm not surprised at both listing the Celtics at #3 since there are questions about KG's knee. But ESPN ranks the Magic #2… while Sporting News puts Orlando at #8. 8?? Part of this is the complete BS that generally surrounds power rankings… but I still find that surprising.
