Happy Birthday to Philadelphia 76ers Pierre Jackson!

The electric Pierre Jackson may be rehabbing his torn achilles all season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy his game. Jackson has endless highlight reel clips on YouTube that can be found within a few seconds. Watch out though, once you get started, you don’t want to stop.

The Philadelphia 76ers traded for Jackson for a reason and the highlights below will show why. He barely hits the charts at 6’0″, but his ability to fill up a scoring sheet makes him a rare commodity. Jackson has yet to prove if he can translate his game to the NBA level, but his D-League performances showed that he was born to play on the NBA hardwood.

On this day, Pierre Jackson was born 23 years ago, making him 23 today (math!). To honor Jackson on his birthday, we bring you highlights from his 58 point performance when he was with the Idaho Stampede last season, which broke the NBADL’s scoring record. Be excited to get this guy on the court next season and wish him a speedy and full recovery. Get well soon, Pierre!
