Q: You mentioned the change to Brooklyn, how did that come about? Were there a lot of different teams that you were talking to in free agency, or was the Nets situation the most appealing for you? A: At the end of the day, the Nets situation was the most appealing for me, just because of the way they play. Their style of play really fits my game well, and I like the New York area. I like being in the city. So staying up here was definitely a plus, and just the opportunity that the Nets presented me with — what Billy King was telling me, what coach Hollins was telling me, how they want me to play, what they want me to do for the team — it just put everything over the top. That’s pretty much why I decided to stay in New York and play for the Nets.
Feb. 24, 2015. What are your impressions of some of the other key players on your team? Jackson: “Jason Smith has really stepped up his game, and before he got hurt, so had Shane Larkin. Unfortunately, Shane hasn’t grown any since the start of the season. Tim Hardaway still shows great potential but has been inconsistent. Jose Calderon expects perfection, and since our operation of the triangle — while improving — remains far from perfect, Jose gets frustrated. When that happens, he gets tight and makes mistakes. Overall, though, and more often than not, everybody plays hard.”
