At 34 years old, you wouldn't expect the San Antonio Spurs' Stephen Jackson to be called anything close to an "All-Star," but Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle says otherwise.
Carlisle coached Jackson when they were both in the Indiana Pacers organization, so he knows Jackson's worth ethic and drive to win. These were his comments about Jackson to Star-Telegram.com.
“He’s an all-star caliber player -- he’s that good a basketball player........He’s a really good all-around player, he hits big shots, he can post, he can drive, he can hit three’s, he can defend and rebound. He’s going to play multiple positions.’’
Jackson isn't close to the player he was under Carlisle, but he still plays close to the way he used to.
