Had Reggie Jackson remained at Boston College for his senior year, the Eagles likely would have finished better than their 9-22 record last season. But Jackson decided to take a chance on a professional career, and the move paid off as he reached the NBA Finals as a reserve guard with the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jackson knew he would be taking a chance when he declared himself eligible for the draft, partly because a work stoppage was looming. His first professional season did not go smoothly, and Jackson is focused on making up for lost time in preparing for next season. “It was a roller coaster ride, not knowing what was going to happen during the season,” Jackson said. “I got hurt, there was the lockout, a shortened training camp, so I wasn’t able to go through a full preseason. I was behind the eight-ball right away. “We had a bright future and a lot of people picked us to win. Then Eric Maynor goes down and he’s one of the best point guards in the league.” Boston Globe

Asked about being prepared for the adjustment to the professional game, Jackson replied, “Hard to tell. The biggest thing is mental, I believe. I was probably as ready mentally as I could be to take on everything — stepping into Eric’s shoes and taking criticism and just being able to bounce back. “It helped, hopefully, and it will help me throughout next season. I’ve definitely just been taking care of my body and, since I’m getting older, my muscles are catching up with each other, and I’m stronger all over. I’ve gained weight, probably 10 pounds from my junior season at BC to my rookie season.” Boston Globe

Thunder reserve guard Reggie Jackson visited Norman “Michael” Richards III, who was shot in Bricktown after Oklahoma City’s series- clinching win over the Lakers, in the hospital Friday. “It’s a sad incident,” Jackson said. “He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn’t seem like he or his family are bitter about it. It was good to sit down and talk with him and hopefully brighten up his day.” Oklahoman
