Listen: NBA Lottery Hopeful Josh Jackson Talks Up His Mom With Scoop B

There are certainly few mother-son duos involved in the NBA like Phoenix Suns rookie Josh Jackson and his mother, Apples Jones.

As we come out of another Mother’s Day we can get from the story of the former Kansas University standout and his fellow ball-playing mother a great example of sacrifice and devotion from a mother to her son and what that can mean when the two unite against the world.

Phoenix Suns forward, Josh Jackson and his mother, Apples Jones dropped by Scoop B Radio with Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson.
