Here's a good video about his journey "in his own words." Pretty long but you can get the idea. LINK

He was awesome. Everyone remembers the scoring but I saw him make a half court bounce pass that was incredible.

I recall getting together with friends to watch a pay per view event of him and Bo Kimble playing one on one. I think Bo won. I can't imagine two college players today being a similar draw.
I remember that. From what I recall, it wasn't CJ vs Bo Kimble directly; it was about 8 individual guys who did a tourney (win and advance). 1 on 1, make it-take it. Kimble won the tourney over Gary Payton.
CJ absolutely destroyed some MJ wannabe, I think his name was Willie Burton or something; a 6'6" guy from Minnesota maybe? Got into a rhythm and rained jumpers from everywhere. The ref (yeah they had one!) would retrieve the ball and toss it back to Chris who would then launch another, while his poor victim was still turning his head to find CJ after watching the last shot go in.

Gary Payton (the Glove, senior from Oregon St) beat Chris. The game got physical (by physical I mean Payton I think actually ripped Jackson's jersey). Payton was 6'4", athletic and kept his hands on his opponent continuously. He played like a linebacker on 4th and goal. I do remember CJ looking at the ref and saying "frick, c'mon man" or something like it.

Kimble beat Payton the final round, because Kimble was 6'5 and maybe 20 lbs heavier, and was too strong for Payton to wrestle down. I kinda remember Payton getting his arm stuck inside of Kimble's jersey on a drive...

CJ was too small to handle the physical nature of someone like the Glove, but if you played by strict hands-off rules, he was unstoppable

I remember this pass. He put a spin on it that I had NEVER seen before.

that somehow saving of the ball about to go out of bounds, after Greg Anthony missed the 2nd free throw, in the UNLV game was money.

he saves it back to Sims, who passes to Mouton, who dishes to Ricky B. for the game winner.

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Too bad he fricked it all up and went into the Embarrassments of LSU folder.

Great, great player - maybe could have been the best college player ever if he hadn't left LSU early for the NBA. Screwed up in the NBA with his anti-American shenanigans. Sad story, but I don't feel sorry for him one bit - he made his bed, now he has to sleep in it.

Spot on Doc. CJ was an absolute showstopper.
