NBA’s Stephen Jackson BIG3 Player Of Week

Former NBA player Stephen Jackson was named the Player of the Week for BIG3, Ice Cube’s new professional 3-on-3 basketball league.

 

The 6-8 small forward poured in 25 points for the Killer 3s in a tight 51-48 loss to 3’s Company at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY.

 

Jackson shot 10-of-21 from the field, while adding 4 rebounds and 3 assists in the game.

 

“Stephen Jackson exemplifies what the BIG3 is all about. He’s tough and a scorer with high-energy, who puts it all on the line when he plays,” said BIG3 Commissioner Roger Mason, Jr. “Stephen has been one of the league’s elite players from the beginning of the season and his Week 7 performance showed the type of fearless competitor he is.”

 

Former Pistons NBA champion Chauncey Billups added 10 points for the Killer 3s in the loss.

 

For 3’s Company, Andre Owens (U. Houston) had 20 points, while Al Thornton (Florida State) added 15 points in the win.

 

But the star of the game was Jackson, who is the BIG3’s second leading scorer this season, averaging 21.6 points a game.

 

The 43rd overall pick in the 1997 Draft by the Suns directly out of high school, Jackson averaged 15.1 points, 3.1 assists, and 3.9 rebounds in 14 NBA seasons with the Pacers, Spurs, Clippers, Bucks, Hornets, Warriors, Hawks, and Nets.

 

Jackson won an NBA championship with the Spurs in 2003.
