At Last, Bobby Jackson Becomes a Real Superhero

From Sam Amick:

If Bobby Jackson's storied Sacramento stay indeed ends this season, the final act couldn't be more fitting.

The most beloved of Kings exudes bravery in his return from injury, playing despite a fractured face that doctors would have fixed had he let them. Instead, he dons a protective purple mask and looks the part of hoops hero. "Purple Haze," as one fan suggests his comic book name should be, or perhaps "The Purple Protagonist."

That scene may unfold tonight at Arco Arena, where the veteran who broke his left cheekbone against Cleveland on March 13 is a game-time decision against Memphis.

We always knew what he had deep inside him. Vanquish the Grizzlies!
