Ranking all of Steph’s teammates: #27 — Jarrett Jack

Ahh, the good ol’ days.

Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

During his time with the Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry has had 106 teammates who have appeared in at least one game. Some played in exactly one game, while others played in hundreds. Some never actually played in a game that Curry was active for, while others formed historically great partnerships with him.

And I’m ranking all 106 of them before a new season starts and he adds to the tally. Better get a move on.

Players are ranked — and stats are shown — based only on their time as Curry’s teammate. How good/bad they were in other organizations doesn’t matter. How good/bad they were on pre-2009-10 Warriors teams doesn’t matter.

#27 — Jarrett Jack

Games: 79 (33rd out of 106)
Points per game: 12.9 (T-15th out of 106)
Rebounds per game: 3.1 (T-48th out of 106)
Assists per game: 5.6 (T-2nd out of 106)

I’ll be honest, I don’t always have the best associations of Jarrett Jack on the Warriors, because I tend to think of him as a player that Mark Jackson gave the ball to in late-game scenarios when Steph Curry should’ve been given the opportunity.

But that shouldn’t change the fact that Jack was a stellar offensive player while with the Warriors. He shot 40.5% from beyond the arc, and averaged 6.7 assists per 36 minutes.

He took care of the ball, initiated the Warriors offense, and knocked down shot after shot, especially clutch shots.

Was he fun to watch on offense? Honestly, not really. But he was reliable, consistent, and most importantly, valuable. And he did help tremendously with Curry’s development at the point guard position.

The Warriors ended up having a pretty good season in 2012-13, Jack’s only year with the squad. He deserves a lot of credit for that.

With fewer than 30 players left, I’m going to start listing the remaining names in alphabetic order, to help out with determining whether someone is properly ranked. Here they are:

Kelenna Azubuike, Leandro Barbosa, Harrison Barnes, Jordan Bell, Andrew Bogut, Willie Cauley-Stein, Marquese Chriss, DeMarcus Cousins, Kevin Durant, Monta Ellis, Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Damion Lee, David Lee, Jeremy Lin, Shaun Livingston, Kevon Looney, Corey Maggette, JaVale McGee, Zaza Pachulia, Eric Paschall, D’Angelo Russell, Klay Thompson, David West, Andrew Wiggins, Dorell Wright
