Jarrett Jack is the type of player who could not never quite escape his public perception. He was known throughout the season as someone who took shots away from the far more beloved Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, someone who made poor decisions and coughed up the ball too often, and often someone who was the scapegoat for losses.
