Former NBA player Stephen Jackson recently made a bold claim that he’s returning to play in the NBA.
Jackson posted a video on Instagram, where he thanks both those who supported him, and those who did not.
““I just want to let everybody know that I will be back in the NBA this year,” said Jackson, 38. “I can’t say exactly what’s going on right now, because you know, people try to run with stuff and everything’s not locked in yet, but I will be back in the NBA this year. So to everybody that’s been supporting me, praying for me, I appreciate it. The haters, I appreciate ya’ll too, because ya’ll motivated me to prove ya’ll wrong,” he said.
Jackson didn’t offer any specific details on his return, thus time will tell if he’s able to land a spot on an NBA team. He last appeared on the court while with the Clippers in the 2013/14 season, where he played in only nine games and averaged 1.7 points in 11.9 minutes.
Jackson played 14 seasons in the NBA, for New Jersey Nets, San Antonio Spurs, Atlanta Hawks, Indiana Pacers, Golden State Warriors, Charlotte Hornets, Milwaukee Bucks and LA Clippers. Jackson played in a total of 858 NBA games (676 started), averaging 15.1 ppg, 3.9 rpg and 3.1 apg in 31.9 mpg.
