Russell Westbrook On Former Teammate Reggie Jackson: "Who?"

Reggie Jackson left the Oklahoma City Thunder under contentious circumstances last season. He wanted the minutes and opportunities of a starting player, so he was not the ideal player to back up Russell Westbrook, and it really harmed the Thunder’s chemistry last season. After he got shipped out to Detroit, Westbrook… »46 minutes ago11/28/15 11:40am


Reggie Jackson Is Very Surprised To Learn He Had 20 Assists Tonight

Reggie Jackson really wanted out from Oklahoma City, and with Brandon Jennings sidelined with a ruptured Achilles, he's getting a chance to make a team his own for the first time. Tonight he had his best game as a Piston, scoring an efficient 23 points and dropping 20 dimes in a win over the Grizzlies. You can see… »3/18/15 1:31am3/18/15 1:31am

Westbrook And Durant Don't Seem Too Sad About Losing Reggie Jackson

The Oklahoma City Thunder didn't really have choice when it came to trading backup point guard Reggie Jackson, a talented but flawed young player who made it very clear that he'd like to be a starter elsewhere. They got a pretty good haul, grabbing an array of solid players to fill out the bench in exchange for one… »2/20/15 10:00am2/20/15 10:00am

Reggie Jackson's Third-Person Apology For Harassing A Female Beat Writer

Vice Sports has a very good profile of Lisa Saxon, who in the 1980s became one of the first female sportswriters on an MLB beat. The harassment—verbal, mental, and physical—that she dealt with was hellish, but at least she was able to achieve to a sort of peace with one of her chief tormentors, Reggie Jackson. »11/17/14 12:35pm11/17/14 12:35pm

Reggie Jackson Attempts Desperation Shot With Four Full Seconds Left

Reggie Jackson hit a big three-pointer to bring the Thunder within two points of the Grizzlies just inside one minute to play. He then hit a floating layup to the tie the game at 80-80 with 30 seconds left.

The Moving Finger Writes: Red Smith On Reggie Jackson's Historic Homers

Red Smith is the most respected sports columnist we've ever had. In his prime, Jimmy Cannon, Smith's friendly rival, was certainly as well-known. Cannon, the Voice of New York, was an emotional, colloquial writer whose reputation, unfortunately, has faded. But Smith endures. What is it about his writing that ages so… »6/10/13 12:37pm6/10/13 12:37pm

The Best Picture I Ever Took At A Sporting Event: Spike Lee, Reggie Jackson And Val Kilmer Chat In (Old) Yankee Stadium

What you see here is Spike Lee interviewing Reggie Jackson in the right field upper deck of old Yankee Stadium. That's Val Kilmer there in the foreground, too, for some reason. I took this picture a few hours before the final game played at the old Yankee Stadium on September 21, 2008. It was a weird scene. »10/01/12 9:01pm10/01/12 9:01pm

Yankees Punish Reggie Jackson For Reasonable Comments

Reggie Jackson got the SI treatment last week, and as so often happens with these things, 3800 words worth of profile have been discarded and distilled into two measly quotes, ever-so-slightly controversial. And now, allergic to anything resembling a deviation from a murderously boring and marketable company line, the… »7/09/12 4:05pm7/09/12 4:05pm

Reggie Jackson Once Hit Three Home Runs In One Game, Does Not Want Anyone In The Hall Of Fame

Sports Illustrated recently had a nice long piece on Reggie Jackson. We learn from Jackson that he is not cocky or attention seeking—in the same paragraph we learn that he told Phil Taylor to meet him at a "building he owns, where he keeps a fleet of vintage automobiles on the ground floor" and in the same article he… »7/07/12 12:00pm7/07/12 12:00pm
