NBA Comparison: Isaiah Thomas

Strengths: Small but explosive PG with leadership and a winning mentality ... Makes up for lack of size with great heart and determination ... Very good scorer showing the ability to knock down shots out to 3 point range ... An explosive scorer ... Legitimate PG skills showing leadership and the ability to run a team, and has given the Baylor program stability during his two years there ... Shows good pick and roll skills, adding to his intrigue ... Also excels in ISO situations, showing the ability to create shots for himself by drawing defenders off balance and getting good elevation to get shots off ... Utilizes crossovers, step backs and fadaways to create space for himself ... Though small, he's got a rugged frame with well defined shoulders, and shows good body strength to absorb contact ... A freakish athlete who on occasion is able to use his great leaping ability and convert dunks on ally oops or breakaways ... Excellent body control ... Tough to contain. Great speed to get by defenders off the dribble ... Tremendous ability to handle the basketball, like it's on a string ... Aggressive attacking defenders and getting into the paint ... Low center of gravity gives him ability to start and stop on a dime and change directions quickly ... Solid vision and playmaking skills for others ... Improved upon a/to ratio in Sr. year, taking it above 2/1 ...

Weaknesses: His most glaring weakness is his lack of size. At 5'10 he's a defensive liability and will have to work twice as hard to get open looks, and get passes off ... Some teams just won't consider small point guards due to the liabilities associated with having them on the floor ... Unlike a player Pierre often gets compared to, Nate Robinson, who is a ball hawk, Jackson doesn't show the same tenacity or passion on the defensive end of the floor ... Will be a target for post ups from bigger point guards ... Overall shooting efficiency dropped from junior to senior year. From 46.0% to 42.7% FG and from 40.8 to 35.9 from 3p ... lack of size limits his effectiveness finishing, despite his great athleticism. A more effective half court than transition offensive player ... Over penetrates at times and should look to polish his tear drop ...

Notes: Played two years at College of Southern Idaho, winning NJCAA Division I Player of the Year as a sophomore ... Had a big impact on the Baylor program helping to lead them into the Elite Eight in his junior season ... Has been the most valuable player on a team that included players such as Perry Jones, Quincy Miller and Isaiah Austin ... The NBA game has shifted over to speed than size giving smaller guys like Pierre Jackson a chance. Jackson is helped by the success of players like Nate Robinson and Isaiah Thomas in recent years ...
