   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Jackson has had many, many opportunities to succeed in the NBA so far, but has failed in them all, partly due to injury and partly due to circumstance. In all these years, Luke has managed only 73 NBA games, the most recent of which came in 2007-08, when he was a midseason pick-up on that absolutely horrific Miami team that was making no attempt to win. Jackson spent the 2008-09 season in the D-League, hoping for a return, and then spent last year in Italy, averaging 15.1 points and 5.3 rebounds for Carife Ferrara.

Jackson is still battling to get back in the NBA, yet it looks like an ever more impossible task. He had a good year in Italy last season, averaging 15.1ppg, 5.3rpg, 2.3apg and 2.1spg, shooting 38% from three point range. Yet in the eyes of the NBA, the book is out on him now. About to turn 29, it's unlikely to change.

This very day, Luke Jackson agreed to sign with Italian team Lottomatica Roma. It's a good gig for him, but it should seal his NBA fate.
