Where are they now - Jarrett Jack

In case you missed it, Jarrett Jack is turning into a bonafied leader and a legit NBA point guard. Not that we didn't know it was going to happen. We all know. All you had to do was ask us. But now, with a healthy ankle for the first time in 2 years, Jarrett is showing why the Trailblazers made the right choice in making him their floor leader. While he's had some up-and-down games, check out some of his signature games in the past week (click for larger version)

He's still struggling with his 3pt shot, but he almost had a triple-double in the victory over Toronto, and they were without Zach Randolph (check out a nice Jarrett video on that game here). Check out the line on Dec 6 with 30pts, 10 assists and only 2 to's. He is really starting to exert himself and we all love to see it.

Let's remind some people as they watch Javaris Crittenton - Jarrett struggled running the Tech team. He turned the ball over............................ and so it shall be with JC.................... Coach Hewitt says that Javaris is the most talented PG he's had a GT. He's further ahead offensively than Jarrett at the same point in their careers and has the potential to be a defensive stopper as well. It's going to take time. Techies have been spoiled over the years with great PG's.

Great to see Jarrett having an impact:
