Ex-NBA player Stephen Jackson desires to comeback in the league next season

By on

Stephen Jackson last played for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2013-2014 NBA season. It is a forgettable one for him since he only appeared nine games that year. But now, ex-NBA player Jackson is longing for a comeback in the league.

There are rumors before of Jackson coming to the Golden State Warriors. But nothing happened with the player since then.

The ex-NBA player recently posted a video on Instagram that shows his desire to play in the NBA again.

Jackson could really have a nice come back if he signs with the Warriors since he had his best seasons there. He once led Golden State in the playoffs as the 8th-seeded team in the western conference of the 2006-2007 season.

The Warriors team in 2007 is known as the team who upsets the number one team in the NBA regular season that year. This happened when they defeated Dallas Mavericks in six games.

He averaged 16.8 points per game, 3.3 rebounds per game, 4.6 assists per game, 1.3 steals per game and 0.4 blocks per game that season. But he is more notable in the 2007 playoffs where he had 19.9 points per game, 3.6 rebounds per game, 3.6 assists per game, 2.0 steals per game and 0.7 blocks per game in 11 games.

Stephen Jackson also played in six other teams aside from the Warriors and the Clippers. These teams are the New Jersey Nets, San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, Charlotte Hornets and Milwaukee Bucks.

Jackson is a known streak-shooter in which he could just pile up points for his team. To prove this, the ex-NBA player set his career-high with 43 points while playing for the Hornets back in 2010.

If Stephen Jackson finds his way on an NBA team next season, he might still contribute for a team. This is because he already played 14 seasons in the league. At 38-years-old right now, he could provide some added experience and veteran leadership albeit in a limited role.
