Jackson enters his second full season with the Pistons more comfortable with the leadership role that naturally falls to starting point guards. He’s also aware his leadership will be more critical this time around after the departures of the most senior – and among the most respected – voices in the locker room: Blake, Joel Anthony and Anthony Tolliver. “It’s time for us to step up,” he said. “You don’t find too many guys like that who are very team oriented and who have had success in the league and who are still about the success of the team and the success of the individuals around them, especially willing to give back so much knowledge of the game and sharing with the guys. Me and a few of the other guys, it’s kind of like they forced (leadership) upon us. I feel it’s forced upon me to lead now and now’s the time to really step up. This is the year to do it.
