“That’s what I live for. I make love to pressure.”
– Stephen Jackson
Another side victory for the Charlotte Bobcats. Forward Stephen Jackson was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.
During the period of January 11 through January 17, Jackson’s point total ranked second in the East. He averaged 29.3 points and 3.3 steals per game while pacing the Bobcats for a 3-0 week. Captain Jack set a career high 43-points in a win over Houston and clocked his 10,000th point while stomping the Suns. It was a big week to say the least and just re-establishes what an asset Jack has been this season.
Other nominees for the award were Atlanta’s Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson, Cleveland’s LeBron James, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki, Indiana’s Danny Granger, Memphis’ Zach Randolph, Miami’s Dwyane Wade, New Orleans’ Chris Paul, Philadelphia’s Samuel Dalembert and Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani.
