Reggie Jackson details struggles after spending 4-month NBA hiatus in LA hotel
Right after the LA Clippers had their first practice inside the NBA’s Orlando bubble, guard Reggie Jackson spoke with members of the media and discussed how his quarantine went.
First and foremost, Reggie Jackson had to stay in a hotel for the past four months because of how recently he’d join the team. Apparently, Jackson decided he was best off staying in a hotel room during the NBA hiatus, rather than renting an apartment.
However, despite being in limited space, Jackson was able to work out in his hotel room. The 30-year-old stayed in shape by dribbling a ball in his room and shooting at a court at Paul George’s second house in LA. Furthermore, Jackson was able to get proper conditioning by going on hikes in LA.
When Jackson first started playing with the Clippers, he admitted that he had some concerns about his chemistry with the team. However, thanks to the NBA hiatus, Jackson was able to build chemistry with the team in the group chats. Jackson told members of the media, per Tomer Azarly, that somebody is always starting conversations in the group chat, so it hasn’t been hard to build chemistry off the court.
Nevertheless, Jackson will most certainly be an x-factor for the Clippers during the playoffs. During his time with the Clippers this season, Jackson has been a solid playmaker coming off the bench, which is all the Clippers ask for. This season, Jackson is averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.2 assists while shooting 52 percent from the field.
