Still hunkered down to due to the pandemic but never short of storylines to discuss this week we managed to drag away Sacramento Kings Assistant Head Coach and former player-favorite Bobby Jackson from his Sunday Funday to do a little FaceTime with the Baseline (FTWB).
In the early 2000s Jackson was the prototype hybrid guard that paved the way for the Jamal Crawford, Louis Williams and Eric Gordons of the game to elevate the importance of the Sixth Man. In his hay-day he was a bulldog offensive threat and now he passes his knowledge to the NBA's NextGen. We discuss:
- His transition to coaching: When did he know? How did it come to him
- How his player experience challenged the NBA Status Quo of coaching
- How he has the ear of Buddy Hield and future Stars for the Kings
- What's he doing to pass away the time while the NBA season is in an indefinite suspension
A real down to earth must listen-to-convo with a great former player now insightful and inspirational assistant coach you don't want to miss.
