Jaren Jackson Jr. 2018-2019 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

Quoting from the Ringer's rookie comps article from today

 

Jackson’s rebounding (just 4.8 per game) is rather light for a big; this seems like a concern, but the nearby presence of Marc Gasol diminishes his individual rebounding opportunities, and Jackson’s contested-rebound rate is one of the best in the league.

zach kram is their stats guy and he doesnt seem all too concerned about JJJ s rebounding.

 

Could it be lack of strength? I was watching the Pels game last night and Anthony Davis' shoulders looked so much wider than Jackson's. Or maybe he really is a crappy rebounder, I don''t know

Wth happened to the 3 blocks

 

Bickerstaff complained to the league saying it would make him look really bad playing jamychael green so much if jjj piles on the blocks and the league took those two off

 

too bad for him they can’t adjust the +/- rating too ... green is -15 with giannis largely off the court, jjj is -4 with him largely guarding giannis

 

smh

This guy is filled with talent and potential, a lot of fun to watch. However, the lack of rebounds does scare me. Anyone who watches a lot of their games have any insight? He's only playing 25 minutes, so I'm not expecting 10 rebounds a game or anything like that, but at least give me 6 or 7, 4 is pretty low for a young, athletic big like him.

Reminds me of M. Turner his 1st two years and just started to play like we expected. Hopefully Jackson gets going before Turner did. Somebody got frustrated and dropped him. Hope I can scoop him. MEM keeps on losing, he'll have a long leash 2nd half.

They’re just shopping Gasol and trying to make Gasol look as delicious as ever🧐 but nonetheless , JJJ will become a household name once after the break and trade deadline. Fully unleashed and potential for free agents to sign in Memphis. book it!

 

Nevar lost!

Indeed. He and JaMychal. Somebody dropped JJJ in one of my leagues. What were they thinking? And yes, I scooped him. Trying to find space for Greene somewhere, cuz he's balling right now too.

He will be the highlight after all star or even during . Their rookie will get touches so he’s a bit glorified going into the rookie sophomore game or we they call it now lol but he’s beyond good what he did on lebron in la speaks volumes

Hey look, not saying he AD yet, but he's AD-like. Wing span off the charts, stocks and treys. Somebody mentioned something bout his low rebounds, but when he's not alongside Gasol, they go up. So after the break it's on. Kid is good.

Man. This is when you do too much fantasy basketball.

 

Go watch some real games before making such comparisons.

What contstitues a real game though.

 

Asking because I don't know if I should take the opinion of a guy who said Doncic is in the mvp conversation and has a chance to climb the mvp rankings. :rolleyes:

Lol y’all should stop bickering, you are both right

 

i love jjj but he s not in ads vicinity. He doesn’t have his midrange pull up, his strength and I think, most importantly, the go ahead from the coaching staff to be the centerpiece of the team

 

Thats not to say if he gets the usage ad gets he will put up the same stats, he won’t. He will be no where near as efficient. 

 

However, his stats are undoubtedly unicornish.  To me a better comparison is Porzingis. Can be great offensively, hit 3s, block a lot of shots and be light on rebounds. Jjj is super young though and very smart, has tons of room for improvement so maybe in 2-3 years he is putting up ads stat line but not yet

 

on a side note, his rebounding has been super disappointing. However, giannis and KG had very similar overall per min rebound rates and that gives me hope that in the future jjj really improves in that cat. Or he ends up Brook Lopez 2.0. Who knows

 

cheers

Lol he’s actually better than AD offensively ,  AD came in as a shot blocker before developing a shot. JJJ stares down Lebron James and knocks a 3 to win the game in LA. I don’t recall a AD doing things like that, at 19. But hey who knows, JJJ isn’t there yet but he’s a far better talent than AD at this age, just foul trouble is the problem but his legs are stronger than AD for sure and that’s worth developing alone
