The Scoop Jackson School of Journalism

It's time to play a game: Read Scoop Jackson's latest article.
Part I: Aside from learning that Scoop Jackson is friends with Avery Johnson, name one thing you learned. Anything at all.

Part II: Recite any emotions, laughs or reactions caused by this article.

Bonus: Explain how ESPN.com sees fit to employ Scoop Jackson. A typical Scoop piece is poorly contstructed, but at least he usually tries to make a point or stir emotion. This article has no facts or insight. It has zero conflict, controversy, opinion or any other reason for being written or read. Cotton Candy is substantial by comparison. It's a good thing it was not in printed form for sake of the trees.
