Reggie Jackson: The Dime Mag Interview

Reggie Jackson is featured in the current edition of Dime Magazine. The Thunder's expectations for this year are sky-high and as a result increased attention is given to each of the team's components. Jackson is being pushed to the forefront in the wake of Eric Maynor's season-ending injury, and Dime Magazine caught up with him before the Thunder's game against the Celtics.

Q&A With Reggie Jackson | Dime Magazine

Be sure to check out the whole thing, but here are a few highlights:

Dime: What’s been the hardest part of adjusting to the NBA?

RJ: All the traveling. It’s very tiring. Honestly, I couldn’t tell you what today was, except I’m hearing it’s Martin Luther King Day and of course that falls on Monday. So I don’t really know the dates ever. Too much moving, too much traveling. I don’t know how many games we’ve played. I just take it a day at a time. That’s been my approach. That’s what these guys have taught me, so it’s really helping out right now.

Dime: Being with Kevin Durant, do you guys get any hook ups with shoes?

RJ: I got the KD’s on right now. He takes care of us. Everybody on this team looks out for each other. I’m pretty sure if I asked Russ (Westbrook) for a pair of those kicks, he would give me those too. Everybody’s just looking out for the most part.

Dime: What do you do for fun in Oklahoma City?

RJ: I play video games and chill with my teammates. We just hang out. It’s like being in college again, just everybody kinda has their own crib instead of being in the dorms. But we definitely have that atmosphere. We’re pretty much together all the time, and I think it really shows on the court.
