Former NBA Champion And San Antonio Spurs Forward Wants Back In NBA


He is one of the best players in the Big3 league, and even Chauncey Billups confirmed that.

“He’s the most dominating player in the league,” said Jackson’s teammate, former Detroit Pistons star Chauncey Billups. “Nobody can guard him.”

According to the My San Antonio, former NBA Champion Stephen Jackson wants to play once again in the NBA.

“I’ve been working to go back to the NBA, so this (league) is a blessing for me,” Jackson said. “I want to play basketball as long as I can. I feel like there are guys in the NBA who can’t guard me.”\

But, he knows that a return to the NBA might be a long shot for him.

“I ain’t putting all my eggs in one hat,” he said. “I know what people think of me, and that’s probably kept me out of the game. But as long as I’m playing and am around people I respect and am able to play the game, I’m cool. If it happens, it happens. If it don’t, I love where I’m at.”

Stephen Jackson had a solid NBA career, averaging 15.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. He won 2003 NBA Championship with the San Antonio Spurs when he averaged 11.8 points per game.

Jackson said the 2002-2003 season was the highlight of his career.

“That’s what you play the game for, to win a championship,” he said. “I learned the most from that team. I learned how to be a professional. I learned what I need to do to play the game, and I learned how to play with great players. That helped me to be able to play 14 years in the NBA, so I owe a lot to the Spurs.”

At this moment, Gregg Popovich has Kawhi Leonard, Rudy Gay, Kyle Anderson and Jaron Blossomgame, and that could be a problem for Stephen Jackson.

However, we will enjoy watching him in the Big3 league, and if he continues with a good form, maybe someone calls him in the NBA this season.
