But I’ve also grown to appreciate Heat sideline reporter Jason Jackson.
Through all the Heat’s video-bombing, Jackson keeps hitting the right notes. As someone who’s interviewed professional athletes while they’re clowning with each other, I realize how difficult it is to know exactly when to keep going and when to step back, and I’ve never had to do it on live television. Jackson repeatedly gets through it.
