Jim Jackson, Fox College, Clippers discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
Jim Jackson NBA on TNT clippers analyst Fox college basketball analyst, one of our favorites, Jim Jackson joining us from Madison Wisconsin. How's morale Jim? How are you feeling? I got the best job in the world, man. I'm still undefeated since I retired. I like it. I'm good. I was wondering, you had a foot injury when you were at Ohio State. I think maybe a stress fracture. And watching LeBron's injury, I think he first said that he stepped on somebody's shoe or foot, and then I thought maybe it's a high ankle sprain. The way he landed to me looked different and more serious than you land on somebody's foot. What did you see in that situation? Well, I mean, it goes back because a lot of times with those injuries then, as you know, it's a lingering effect of something else. So that foot had been bothering him for a little while for my understanding. So when you have a non contact injury like that, again, as a result of wear and tear, something over time. So that was just like the needle in the haystack right there on the kind of took it over the top. So when he planted and I saw it, I was like, oh man. And I started to hear more about the injury itself. Because you think about it at this point in the bronze career, he's on the back end. Less days than more. Getting to the plow is very important for him to be out in talking about two weeks, maybe three. It has to serious. Because they had a chance to kind of inch up and have nothing else getting to play in game and go from there. But I think the injury is more serious than probably what they let on. Because if it's two to three weeks to just to be reevaluated, it's probably some swelling in there. It looked like it may be and I'm not a doctor, but it looks like it may have been under the arch of his foot kind of like we're plantar fasciitis is that all of those soft tissue injuries right there, I think all got affected on that play. And then I got to wonder if in three weeks he can come back. Do you even want him to come back? Let's try to get the play in game or do we shut him down for the rest of the season no matter what. Well, it depends on where the Lakers are at too. At that particular point, because AD, you know, not playing back to back games, still hurts the Lakers. Now they were able to split that series Memphis and OKC and when that game in OKC and give themselves a good chance to continue to kind of push up the ladder a little bit. But a lot has to do with that. I mean, I'd like to move that they made in regards to the acquisition. Does that get them a championship this year? I don't think so. From a roster perspective, can they be competitive in a one game scenario?
