Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Steve Turner – Although most people don’t think Reggie Jackson is an amazing point guard, I think otherwise. I seen a lot of potential in him when he was coming off the bench for OKC and the starting role at the point for the Detroit Pistons was a perfect opportunity for him to shine. He may not be worth the $89 mil, 5-year contract yet, but he could prove a lot of people wrong in due time
Sauping R. Arguello – Jackson showed flashes of being a star when Westbrook and Durant got hurt. Once he was traded to Detroit, I think he struggled to find his game at times.
Ben Buchanan – Jackson just got a ridiculous 5-year $89 million dollar deal — weather he deserved it or not is undecided. He’s still a very talented player, a good ball handler, and a great pick and roll presence. When Jackson was acquired by Detroit he went on a tear, he averaged 19+ points, 9+ assists and nearly 6 rebounds. He was arguably the best, or one of the best PG’s in all of basketball for the last month of the 2014-2015 season.
Jr. Williams – I think he was a highly undervalued point guard in the NBA, yet he proved to be a huge asset during his tenure with the OKC Thunder. The Pistons definitely acquired what appears to be their best point guard since the Chauncey Billups era. Jackson is highly efficient in all major categories ranging from scoring, passing, and defense. He’s a huge impact to the team and could be one of the best Eastern Conference point guards of the 2015-16 season.
