#2 Pierre Jackson

At just 5’10” on a good day, former Baylor Bear Pierre Jackson could probably dunk over me without even trying. A freak athlete, Jackson has the hops and speed to blaze past defenders. His best showing of skills came back in 2013 where he broke a D-League record scoring 58 points. Plain and simple, Pierre is the kind of player that can take over the game offensively. Where he tends to struggle is his in decision making, and on the defensive side of the ball. His all out attacking style results in too many bad shots and missed opportunities.

Personally, I’m a huge fan of ‘Pappy Gawd’ and I think he can be the next Nate Robinson with relative ease considering the playing time he will get this year. In the end, health will always be the key for Jackson given his size, and injury history. His #THEYSLEEP movement has caught the attention of lots of folks on YouTube, and you can guarantee he will be a fan favorite in Philadelphia. Having him ranked number two on this list may be a stretch based off his lack of NBA experience, but you can’t deny the unfathomable talent Pierre possesses. I mean, just look at those hops! He just needs to put it all together.
