1978 – Happy 35th birthday to San Antonio Spurs small forward Stephen Jackson (@DaTrillStak5) who is in his 13th season in the league. After being part of the Spurs 2003 championship team, he hopes to help San Antonio get another title. Jackson should be able to do that with his outside shooting. His 1,250 career 3-pointers made are the 35th-most in NBA history.
