The final months of Reggie Jackson's tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunder were acrimonious.
Two hours after word of Jackson's trade to the Detroit Pistons broke, Jackson tweeted, "Crying tears of joy #godisgreat."
"We felt like everybody wanted to be here except for one guy," said Kevin Durant.
Jackson wanted to have a starter's role and make starter's money, which was always going to be difficult if not impossible with Russell Westbrook ahead of him.
Jackson stopped attacking the basket with regularity, attempting 5.1 shots per 48 minutes in the restricted area this season compared to 6.1 last season.
As Durant said Thursday, "He got what he wanted. You can't really --."
Durant paused for a second to think, but he'd already said how he felt
"He got what he wanted," he repeated.
