Taj Gibson thought about getting even when his longtime friend was shot in the head. Derrick Rose also lost a childhood friend to a gun, but he never wanted condolences.

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.
