- The Warriors' most valuable player of the season.
- Led the team in points (20.7) and assists (6.5).
- Sets career high averages in rebounds (5.1), assists (6.5), and points (20.7).
- Did not have any off-court issues this season.
- Continued to be the best defender on the team.
- Got his first career triple-double in a win over the Suns.
- Not his fault, but the Warriors front office turned his expiring contract into a long-term deal expiring in 2013. Although he is a fine leader for this team, he would have been much more valuable as a trade piece to steal away young talent or picks from teams desperate to clear salary.
- Played a team high 39.6 MPG, 2nd in the league only to Andre Iguodala by .3 MPG. Jackson isn't young anymore and he's locked into a long contract. Warriors need to bring down his minutes immediately in order to insure a good return on investment.
- He did not bother to show up for the final home game, Fan Appreciation Night.
- 2nd most Technical Fouls in league; has a bad habit of arguing calls while his man scores easily on the other end.
- Led NBA in turnovers at 3.9 TO with .5 more than the second worst in the league. This is a product of roster deficiencies and his overestimation of his abilities as a Point Forward.
