Jackson Says He’s Handling Trade Rumors “Probably Better Than You Are”

Reggie Jackson, Elijah Millsap

It’s been a tough 2014-15 season for the Thunder’s Reggie Jackson. With Dion Waiters joining the OKC cast, it’s unclear if the Thunder will keep their off-the-bench guard since he’ll be a restricted free agent this summer. When asked about those trade rumors after OKC’s win over Utah on Friday, he made it clear he’s handling them “probably better than you are. Ya’ll are bringing it up.” OK then. Read More »

Russell Westbrook is on a mission to become the best defensive player in the league. While his offensive game has been off the charts since returning from injury this year, his defensive effort has pushed him up the ladder as arguably being considered the best point guard in the league. On Friday night the 26-year-old was able to showcase his impact on both ends of the floor in one single play. Read More »

Video: Reggie Jackson’s Thunderous And-1 Jam

Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry

Coming into Sunday’s matchup between the short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting Golden State Warriors, most thought the game would be a cakewalk for the Warriors. However, a back-and-forth battled ensued at Chesapeake Energy Arena on Sunday, as the Warriors shot a season-low 35.5 percent from the field and OKC, led by Reggie Jackson, gave the offensive-juggernaut a fight for all 48 minutes.

Watch Trey Burke Put Reggie Jackson On Skates

Trey Burke, Reggie Jackson

The Jazz have been really fun to watch, and the Thunder really need Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook back — though yesterday’s extemporaneous pre-game workout is a good sign on that front. Meanwhile, the Jazz’s second-year point guard, Trey Burke, made sometime six man Reggie Jackson do the splits on this sick crossover last night. Read More »

James Harden Says Reggie Jackson “Has To Get The Money That He’s Earned”

Reggie Jackson

If there’s any player that knows how stringent the Oklahoma City Thunder can be in contract negotiations, it’s definitely James Harden. The Houston Rockets superstar and reigning All-NBA First Team honoree was low-balled by the Thunder after winning Sixth Man of the Year in 2011-2012, and subsequently dealt to Houston after it became apparent that the sides would be unable to reach an extension by the deadline that would have made him a restricted free agent the following summer. Just two years later, Oklahoma City finds itself in a somewhat similar situation with super-sub Reggie Jackson. And though GM Sam Presti elected against trading the talented guard even though no extension was reached, that hardly ensures Jackson’s long-term place with the Thunder. Read More »

Serge Ibaka & Kendrick Perkins Freeze Out Reggie Jackson After Selfish Play

Deron Williams, Reggie Jackson

Like Kawhi Leonard with the Spurs and Greg Monroe with the Pistons, Oklahoma City Thunder backup point guard and sometime off-guard Reggie Jackson didn’t agree to an extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, making him a restricted free agent July 1, 2015. Recent comments from Jackson combined with his self-serving play, though, led Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka to perform some in-house team policing during Monday night’s loss 31-point loss to the Nets.

Assessing The Oklahoma City Thunder In Wake Of Kevin Durant’s Injury

Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka

Kevin Durant is irreplaceable. The Oklahoma City Thunder could perhaps duplicate the reigning MVP’s incredible production by using a cavalcade of young reserves in his approximate two-month absence due to a Jones fracture, but the threat of Durant can’t be reproduced. And once you account for the massive strides he made last season as a playmaker and defender, it becomes even clearer that the Thunder will have to make wholesale adjustments while their franchise player recovers.

Thunder GM Sam Presti Says Reggie Jackson Is “Core Member” Of Team

Derrick Rose, Reggie Jackson

After the team deemed it necessary to surrender James Harden two years ago, there’s a growing notion that the Oklahoma City Thunder will feel similarly inclined to part with Reggie Jackson at some point in the next year. General manager Sam Presti tried to put that belief to rest today, insisting Jackson – who will be a restricted free agent next summer if he doesn’t sign an extension before October 31 – is a core member of the Thunder’s future.

Rewatch The Final 1:08 Of OKC’s Incredible Game 5 Comeback

Hopefully no one turned off the OKC/Clippers game last night. I nearly did. Sent a text to my boys saying the series was over. Had my hand on the remote. Channel guide up. But for some reason, I didn’t act. Thank the basketball gods for that one. If you did miss the finish, here’s your chance to see the final 68 seconds of game time. Up seven with under 50 seconds to play, the Clippers somehow chocked it all away. Read More »
