The Pistons Need To Rely On Their Most Unlikely Players In Order To Win The Pistons Need To Rely On Their Most Unlikely Players In Order To Win

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was never supposed to be Detroit’s savior.

The Pistons Are Never Going To Get Those Calls Against LeBron The Pistons Are Never Going To Get Those Calls Against LeBron

It all fell apart rather quickly for the Pistons in Game 1 against the Cavaliers. For most of the game they acquitted themselves about as well as an 8-seed can hope to, sticking close to the favorites all the way into the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Then Reggie Jackson got mad.

Russell Westbrook On Reggie Jackson's Celebration: "Some Real Bullshit" Russell Westbrook On Reggie Jackson's Celebration: "Some Real Bullshit"

Last night’s game mattered a hell of a lot more to the Pistons than it did to the Thunder. OKC is locked into the third seed in the West, and rested Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka. Detroit is sitting in the seven-spot in the East and their odds of making the postseason look good after pulling away from the Thunder late…

Doug McDermott Is Probably Still Looking For Reggie Jackson Doug McDermott Is Probably Still Looking For Reggie Jackson

The Bulls and the Pistons played a Kevin Costner movie of a basketball game last night in Chicago. Detroit finally beat the Bulls in 4OT, 147-144, and Jimmy Butler even had a clear shot to take it to five, but he clanked it. Reggie Jackson had 13 in the final overtime, but he also sent Doug McDermott spinning with…

Reggie Jackson To OKC Heckler: "Suck My Dick, Bitch-Ass Nigga"

Turns out Russell Westbrook wasn’t the only Oklahoma City resident with some choice words for former Thunder point guard Reggie Jackson. Jackson wasn’t too happy about this, telling our man, “Suck my dick, bitch-ass nigga.”

Russell Westbrook On Former Teammate Reggie Jackson: "Who?" Russell Westbrook On Former Teammate Reggie Jackson: "Who?"

Reggie Jackson left the Oklahoma City Thunder under contentious circumstances last season. He wanted the minutes and opportunities of a starting player, so he was not the ideal player to back up Russell Westbrook, and it really harmed the Thunder’s chemistry last season. After he got shipped out to Detroit, Westbrook…

Enes Kanter Sounds Very Happy About Having Left Utah Enes Kanter Sounds Very Happy About Having Left Utah

Since joining the Thunder at the trade deadline, Enes Kanter has been very good offensively and on the glass. To hear Kanter tell it, the biggest reason he is playing so much better is because he was miserable in Salt Lake City. Via Daily Thunder:

Reggie Jackson Is Very Surprised To Learn He Had 20 Assists Tonight Reggie Jackson Is Very Surprised To Learn He Had 20 Assists Tonight

Reggie Jackson really wanted out from Oklahoma City, and with Brandon Jennings sidelined with a ruptured Achilles, he's getting a chance to make a team his own for the first time. Tonight he had his best game as a Piston, scoring an efficient 23 points and dropping 20 dimes in a win over the Grizzlies. You can see…

The Thunder, Pistons, And Jazz Made A Good Trade The Thunder, Pistons, And Jazz Made A Good Trade

The Oklahoma City Thunder are glad they got rid of Reggie Jackson. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook are glad; the coach and front office are glad; the fans are glad. By all accounts, by the time they finally traded him yesterday, in a three-way deal that landed him in Detroit, the discontented backup guard had…

Westbrook And Durant Don't Seem Too Sad About Losing Reggie Jackson Westbrook And Durant Don't Seem Too Sad About Losing Reggie Jackson

The Oklahoma City Thunder didn't really have choice when it came to trading backup point guard Reggie Jackson, a talented but flawed young player who made it very clear that he'd like to be a starter elsewhere. They got a pretty good haul, grabbing an array of solid players to fill out the bench in exchange for one…

Reggie Jackson's Third-Person Apology For Harassing A Female Beat Writer Reggie Jackson's Third-Person Apology For Harassing A Female Beat Writer

Vice Sports has a very good profile of Lisa Saxon, who in the 1980s became one of the first female sportswriters on an MLB beat. The harassment—verbal, mental, and physical—that she dealt with was hellish, but at least she was able to achieve to a sort of peace with one of her chief tormentors, Reggie Jackson.

The Wild End To Clips-Thunder, Thanks To A Controversial Review The Wild End To Clips-Thunder, Thanks To A Controversial Review

The Clippers and Thunder don't feel like closing out games cleanly as of late, but we all benefit from it. Comebacks for everyone! Tonight's OKC rally couldn't have happened without a questionable decision by the officials on an out-of-bounds call, though.

Reggie Jackson Attempts Desperation Shot With Four Full Seconds Left Reggie Jackson Attempts Desperation Shot With Four Full Seconds Left

Reggie Jackson hit a big three-pointer to bring the Thunder within two points of the Grizzlies just inside one minute to play. He then hit a floating layup to the tie the game at 80-80 with 30 seconds left. The score would stay at 80-80 and Oklahoma City and Memphis went to their third consecutive overtime because…
