I know this is totally random, but I just came across this article called Eddie Jones was a bad, bad man.

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nba-ball-dont-lie/eddie-jones-bad-bad-man-video-163539914--nba.html


For a while, there, Los Angeles Lakers guard Eddie Jones was a scene, man.

Eddie Jones was the guy that former Chicago Bulls GM Jerry Krause wanted in Chicago, with Michael Jordan playing baseball with the Birmingham Barons, to take over as his newest and bluest shooting guard. He was the guy that Krause wanted to trade Scottie Pippen for, prior to the 1994 draft, and potentially again at the 1998 trade deadline in the wake of Pippen's trade demand. He was the guy that kept Kobe Bryant on the bench, for Kobe's first two seasons at least, and the man that had every GM salivating as they attempted to swindle a good one out of Laker GM Jerry West while he considered his Jones/Bryant options.

All while, via ClutchFans.net, Eddie kept pulling stuff like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UIwfpy1gtU&feature=player_embedded#!

I think these GM's were a tad high on the guy. Enjoy.

I remember him more from his days at Temple, when he played with Aaron Mckie. But yeah, I loved Jones. Awesome defender, great athlete who ran the floor well, never one of the top players in the league, but fun to watch and very active.

Loved the Eddie Jones/Nick Van Exel backcourt, with Vlade Divac, Elden Campbell and Cedric Ceballos up front.

Man he was frustrating to watch on the Heat. One game he was fantastic. The next game he would get 5 points.

Yep!!! Kinda like a defensive minded "Joe Johnson".... Score 30 points one night, then 7 points the next night.... At least Jones always played defense, though...
