32-year old shooting guard Stephen Jackson was a godsend for the Bobcats this season after coming over in a trade early in the year from the Warriors. Jackson was the best offensive player on the team in 2009-10 for the Bobcats. He played in 72 games (all starts) for the Bobcats last year and he averaged 39.3 minutes, 21.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game. Jackson has now played in 680 games (589 starts) in his NBA career and he is averaging 33.2 minutes, 16.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Jackson didn’t play a lot in his first 2-3 seasons so I think he still has a lot left in the tank for the Bobcats and that is good news.
