One word to describe his season: Solid

Say what you will about Jarrett Jack’s style of play, but he has done a solid job as the Nets’ starting point guard so far this season.

Jack has done a nice job of facilitating this season, something many Nets fans were most worried about when the Nets cut ties with Deron Williams this offseason. Going from the facilitating playstyle that Deron brought to the table, to the shoot-first mentality Jack has had his entire career was a reasonable worry for the Nets entering this season. But Jack has shed the Nets’ worries with strong play all season long, running the Nets offense in an admirable fashion.

Jack clearly isn’t the long term solution at point guard – he’s 32-years-old and his contract is non-guaranteed for next season – but he’s done a better job than most could have hoped as the stopgap. He’s putting up solid numbers across the board, leading the team in assists, third in points per game and second in three point shooting percentage (an area where the team severely lacks).

Jack has been far from an all-star this season, but he’s been better than most of us thought he would be.
