Jackson's waited a little longer. He was a rookie, a late first-rounder in 2011, when the Thunder reached The Finals against Miami, not getting much time at all as he learned the ropes. But OKC veterans like Nazr Mohammad put the word out that the kid was getting things done in practice, and that he was going to be good. "It was tough," Jackson said. "A guy like Nazr told me to be patient, just continue to work, and my time would come. Nazr and Royal Ivey were my vets. I give them a lot of credit for not letting me go haywire ... just preaching to me on road trips that my hard work was going to pay off." NBA.com

Sixteen NBA seasons and Bulls veteran big man Nazr Mohammed says he has never witnessed bullying. Hundreds of different teammates and Mohammed says he has never seen a white player given ‘‘honorary black man status’’ allowing him to use the N-word at will. ‘‘I’m close with Kirk [Hinrich], and I’m really close with [the Okla­homa City Thunder’s] Nick Collison, and how does a conversation like that even start?’’ he said.

Chicago Bulls Center Nazr Mohammed and his wife, Mandi, last week moved from a rental house in Lake Forest to a downtown Chicago apartment. With 16 seasons in the NBA and this year’s $1.4 million contract, Mohammed could afford to buy a house, but at the moment, he’s a committed renter, as he told me when we met backstage at Windy City Live a few weeks ago.

Nazr Mohammed: “[We rented when I played in New York and San Antonio, and then in 2007] when I got to Detroit as a free agent, I had just a signed a pretty nice contract and we had had two kids, so I wanted that feeling of owning something. But same situation: my financial adviser said, ‘Don’t,’ but I didn’t listen. We paid $700-something in Rochester Hills for 3,500 square feet finished and 2,000 feet of basement unfinished. Detroit wasn’t a good fit basketball-wise, but I started finishing the basement as soon as we moved in because I knew it would help sell the house at some point. We spent about $200,000, put a kitchen and bar down there—things we liked but that would help resale value—and we finished the basement a week after I got traded [to Charlotte]. The bottom had fallen out of the real estate market, and that house sat empty for a few years before we sold it. We sold for a little less than the purchase price, so we lost the whole [cost of the] basement.” Chicago Magazine
