After missing 21 games during his rookie season with the Oklahoma City Thunder — and making relatively nondescript contributions in most of the 45 games he did play — second-year guard Reggie Jackson entered the 2012 Orlando Pro Summer League looking for some momentum to carry with him into a sophomore season that will again see him scrapping for reserve minutes in a talented OKC backcourt rotation.
Jackson didn't quite cover himself in glory in South Florida — while he scored in double figures in all four of his appearances, he shot just 41.1 percent from the floor and posted 12 turnovers with his 14 assists. But he did provide the loudest highlight of the weeklong showcase (with several games left on the docket, granted) on Friday morning, climbing the ladder and absolutely baptizing Utah Jazz shot-blocker Jeremy Evans. Behold:
I mean, it's no "dunking two balls at once while jumping over your teammate" or anything, but, y'know, it's still pretty good. Way better than Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook managed to do against the Dominican Republic on Thursday night, anyway.
The moral of the story: If you're only going to make 3 of 10 shots, make sure one of them's a really loud, nasty one.
