(Reggie) Jackson stepped furthest outside the company line. He didn’t pull any punches about his desired role. “I’d like to be a starter. I’m not going to lie,” he said.

Jackson then elaborated: “Everybody thinks point guard is kind of a quirky thing. People that like to run the show. That’s kind of our nature, feeling in control. I definitely enjoy that.”

I asked Jackson if he’s content being a sixth man. I was shocked at his answer. “It’s tough. Like I said, I’m really a control freak so I like to be in control. That’s kind of how I am. I think that’s how point guards tend to be, quirky. I like to feel in control, a guy kind of running the show.”
