I bring this up because I am very impressed with Jackson's offensive game. He can seemigly score on anyone and it does not seem to matter who is defending him.
Obviously I'm not suggesting that he is one of the best offensive players in the game, because he still has poor shot selection at times and he is a streaky shooter, but I have not seen him struggle because of the defense. His struggles from time to time appear to me to be more self-induced.
He can get his shot off over anyone who has guarded him, he can drive around anyone that guards him and he is big enough to finish. I really did not realize he had the off the dribble game that he does.
Am I overstating this.
If he can improve his shot selection and learn to keep his emotions under control there is no limit to how good he can become.
Being able to score over almost any defender is huge. That means he'll be tough to stop in the playoffs, teams will have to focus their defense on him. His ability to hit tough shots will also serve him well in the playoffs.
To say the least I'm glad we have him. Whether he's a hothead or not.
He can rebound and defend also.
