Jackson may not make a lot of â€œgreatest of all timeâ€ player lists, but a look at the Brooklyn, NY nativeâ€™s stat sheet will confirm that he was an exceptional point guard. The NBAâ€™s Rookie of the Year in 1988 averaged 13.6 points and 10.6 assists per game in his first NBA season. By time he retired in 2004, the floor general had dished out enough assists over his 17 seasons to land at No. 3 on the all-time list. Despite his consistency, Jacksonâ€™s only NBA Finals appearance came in 2000 as a member of the Indiana Pacers who lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in six games.
