Default Jarrett Jack, Monty Williams have a history

Itís no secret that Jarrett Jack was the go-to guy here in Toronto whenever anyone needed a quote.

A consummate professional, Jack always made himself available for questions, answered everything thoughtfully and above all else, recognized that his position as a professional basketball player making million of dollars to play a game is very different than the rest of us. This game is a beautiful one, but itís also a business. If teammates are not supposed to get attached to players, the media definitely isnít allowed. This rule doesnít stop me from saying that Iíll miss Jackís quotes and love for this game.

It also wonít stop me from saying that Iím happy for Jack as he heads west. Not only is he escaping the Toronto winter, joining the 11-1 New Orleans Hornets and getting to play with one of his closest friends in All-Star Chris Paul, he is also being reunited with Monty Williams. Most people know that Williams was an assistant with Portland, coaching Jack during his time as a Blazer. What some may not know is that their connection runs much deeper than that.

I canít tell you the number of times Jack has mentioned Williams during scrums where Portland would come up or even in conversations when talking about basketball and life. Itís clear that Williams has had a huge impact on Jackís professional career. Itís appropriate considering the impact Jackís father had on Williams as a teen growing up outside of Washington, D.C.
