For the fourth time in eight weeks a Detroit Pistons player has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week. This was Reggie Jackson's second award this year, tying him with Andre Drummond. His teammates took to Twitter to congratulate him:
Jackson had a pretty funny response to that. I'll let you think of it what you will:
Anthony Tolliver also showed Jackson some love:
And Reggie had the best team answer you could have:
Spencer Dinwiddie also showed a little love:

But then you have Brandon Jennings. As I've said multiple times, this is not the person I thought Jennings was when he came to the Pistons. I was expecting someone with a major ego that cared more for himself than his team. Someone that would not settle for a spot on the bench, let alone saying he isn't even deserving of the second unit spot yet. He went all out in his support of Jackson:
Aye I gotta real. Well I'm always real on here. But Reggie Jackson is the best PG in the East right now. Look at the numbers and Ws— Brandon Jennings (@thinkiminthe90s) December 21, 2015
Like He Really Hoopin'! If the fans wanna be Real. They gotta vote him as a starter. #Shrugs— Brandon Jennings (@thinkiminthe90s) December 21, 2015

Stanley Johnson even retweeted the one above.
As of "Right Now" yes Reggie Jackson is the best PG in the East! 2 time player of the week. Team is over 500. #AllStar— Brandon Jennings (@thinkiminthe90s) December 21, 2015
He also threw in some love for whom I can only assume is Drummond.
We most def have two All stars this year on the Pistons Team.— Brandon Jennings (@thinkiminthe90s) December 21, 2015
It is so great to see this team with so much chemistry. It really feels they are all rooting for each other. Heck, on an off topic note, Drummond even had a tweet where he told Jordan Bachynski that he sees what he's doing over in the European league. No, he is no longer with the team, but it just shows the care and leadership this team has.
Again, congratulations from the Detroit Bad Boys team to you Reggie Jackson. Keep it up.
