I don't blame Jerry for that. He's a father who knows that he's going to die, and wants the best for all his children. I'm sure he always wanted Jim to step into his shoes.
That being said, it was the wrong decision to push Jim into the role of being the decision-maker on basketball matters. That's been proven by the coaching debacles over the past couple of years.
