It's great the felony charge has been dropped against Jackson.
No way resisting arrest sticks now. Just some DA trying to get a plea
I'm glad the felony charges were dropped but I think that kills any chance of more information being released about what went down. He'll likely end up with a plea that gives him some sort of fine and community service hours in exchange for pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.
We trade him yet?
Should of never drafted him.
Picks #1-#4 in that draft class = yuck
Tatum has been pretty good, he went #3. I know his rookie season was better than his 2nd year but the Celtics stumbled as a whole, it wasn't just Tatum.
That is fair.
I don’t watch a lot of Celtics games.
I do watch a lot of sports center and the sports casters do seem to single Tatum out a lot.
I would say he's been pretty average which was impressive for a rookie but less so for a 2nd year. He wasn't quite as effective this past season but he did achieve modest gains in points per game, rebounds and steals although "modest" is almost an understatement. Anyway, he showed signs of future stardom his rookie year but with virtually no growth, that future seems less likely now.
I never understood the love affair with tatum he had a good rookie year and is a solid player but I never saw the future top 5 player that ESPN made him out to be , I only saw a player with maybe a few all star appearances in his future
It’s interesting. It might be that Tatum is actually who a lot of us thought he was . . . a high floor but lower ceiling guy. It would make sense that he show early and then fade in terms of development. It’s atill too early to make that kind of call. But everyone that was trumpeting their keen eye for talent that pimped Tatum last year might just have been a lot premature.
I’m not predicting this, but it’s still a possibility that JJ surpasses Tatum eventually. I’m not even saying it’s close to likely. But the story on these two has yet to be even partially written. I recall guys like Stephen Jackson who didn’t blossom until much later in their careers. If the lightbulb goes on for JJ I think he Pasea Tatum as a player.
It's always difficult to gauge how much improvement you can expect from a 19 year old with a mature game.
Yeah espn went waaaaay over the top in that one.
A lot of this.
I am thinking if it's just the misdemeanor, a fine will likely be the result.
