Default Mark Jackson fired by Warriors

Mark Jackson came to the Golden State Warriors talking big and brash. He promised playoff appearances and championships, and he delivered plenty of wins along the way.

Away from the court, though, Jackson never backed down from doing things how he wanted. His inability to mesh with management and management's inability to mesh with Jackson increasingly overshadowed his success and ultimately cost him his job.

The Warriors fired Jackson after three seasons Tuesday, ending the franchise's most successful coaching tenure in the past two decades but also one filled with drama and distractions.

Default Re: Mark Jackson fired by Warriors

Warriors owner Joe Lacob met with three Bay Area media members and answered any and all questions about Tuesdays firing of head coach Mark Jackson. Heres a transcript:

At what point did you decide that you had to make a change?: I know Ive been quoted as saying multiple times and it is true were going to wait until after the year to make a decision. I know Ive already heard people say, Oh, that had this decision made long ago. That is not true. Were we discussing it? Of course, we had those conversations. But even in the meeting this morning, when Bob (Myers) and I were sitting with Mark hes a very compelling guy, and we spent over an half and a half with him this morning you always wonder whether youre doing the right thing. Its not a simple thing. We decided it last night/this morning. We met with Mark, because we didnt want to mess around once we had made the decision and had done all of our diligence. Its been a very hard 48 hours after the season. We made a decision, and weve got to just go.
