NBA Comparison: Leandro Barbosa (not as quick)

Joshua Motenko - 8/10/2007

Strengths: Cocky, athletic combo guard with excellent shooting ability. When Jackson gets hot, he can hit shots from anywhere on the court and out past the NBA three point line. He jumps very high on his jump shot enabling him to get it off when being closely defended. He is very athletic and can rise up above others on the court to throw down highlight dunks. He also has very good body control when in the air finishing at the rim. His body is chiseled and he is much stronger than other players his age. He has above average quickness, and likes to use the crossover dribble to get off his jumper, or create space to drive to the basket.

Weaknesses: Hes short for a 2 guard and doesnt really have any point guard skills besides the ability to drive and dish. Many undersized scorers are now making a living in the NBA if they have other things going for them. Jackson could be that type of player if he can learn to harness his skills. He needs to work on his ball handling ability. Right now, hes very flashy, making gestures to the crowd or his bench after each shot he makes. However, he doesnt have the greatest basketball IQ and he is very inconsistent with his shot. When its falling, he seems like a great prospect, but when his shot isnt dropping, it disrupts other aspects of his game, and neutralizes him as just a nice athlete. If hes able to show some maturity, hes got the skills to make the NBA.

Notes: Top-two guard in his age group in France, alongside Saidou N'Joya.
