Jackson was given the night off because of rest, an acknowledgement that the season has been a struggle since he returned after missing the first 21 games with left knee tendinitis.
Whether he will play again over the final seven games, no one can say.
For NBA nerds world wide, the looming trade deadline is a never-ending argument of what teams need, don’t need, who sucks, who doesn’t suck, who says no, and money that isn't theirs. While trade talk is certainly fun, if the Pistons aren’t trading for a singular player that has the ability to change the trajectory of this team or someone who can grow with the core, they shouldn’t be partaking in talks this year. At best, replacing Jackson with any one of those players will ultimately lead the Pistons to an alternate route of getting beat in the second round.
We’ve seen point guard names like Eric Bledsoe and Ricky Rubio floated around over the past couple weeks. Jackson’s taken a lot of heat from the Pistons’ faithful and has since been involved in fake trade discussions on Twitter and in message boards internet wide. We’d be stuck in mid-2000’s Atlanta Hawks’ purgatory. So what’s the point of including Reggie in any deal that would net one of those point guards in return?
Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and James Harden would never be dealt to Detroit.
Throw MVP candidate Isaiah Thomas on that list too. That leaves D’Angelo Russell and Elfrid Payton, both players’ best days are still ahead of them.
And speaking about Kim last year, TJ, who is married with three children, told Britain's Reveal magazine: 'I still talk to the family every now and then, though not too much because our schedules are pretty busy.
Kim Kardashian must have an entire closet devoted to coats.
That is until he opted to have platelet-rich plasma treatment on his lingering knee tendinitis, which would cost him the first 21 games of the season. He simply did not have the same explosiveness he had driving to the basket throughout his career and the offense completely floundered because of it.
His return was supposed to spark the 11-10 Pistons towards the upper tier of the Eastern Conference. You can see just from the numbers that Jackson’s lack of explosiveness was a huge damper on his finishing around the rim.
He shot 50.3 percent from 0-3 feet, the lowest he has shot from that range since his rookie season.
