North Carolina’s Justin Jackson declares for NBA Draft

Justin Jackson joined the growing list of players bolting from college basketball to join the NBA Draft when he announced Thursday he would forego his senior season at North Carolina.

Unlike many of the early departures, Jackson stuck around for three seasons and improved every year. He led the Tar Heels to two straight National Championship games. Earlier this month, he helped North Carolina avenge last season’s loss by beating Gonzaga.

Because of this, he’s often mocked as a robot, because only machines are capable Cheap Fishing Jerseys of showing so little emotion, especially as a basketball player. Most of the robotic suspicions come from fans, but now Grizzlies coach David Fizdale is worried too.

He was standing next to me the other night and, he wasn’t breathing. He wasn’t breathing, Fizdale said Thursday before Game 3. So I’m going to check the rulebook and find out if robots are allowed to play in the NBA ’cause somehow Pop and them have figured out — they know something I don’t know. I think he bleeds antifreeze or something.

Jokes aside, Fizdale was actually complimentary toward Leonard, calling him a Cheap Football Jerseys From China first-class individual. But he’s at least a little skeptical as to whether Leonard is made of organs or metal parts.
