With all of the NBA teams in need of coaches, why isn’t Mark Jackson’s name at the top of the list? The Warriors would not be the Warriors “but for” Mark Jackson. However, for some reason there is an eerie silence around the league when sportscasters and the like are referencing who the next coach should be for teams in dire need of a coach.
Since I’m a “die hard” Lakers fan, it is my recommendation that the Lakers hire Mark Jackson at all cost. I wrote a blog when the season began and without any hesitation stated that Bryon Scott was a bad hire from day one. Now that Bryon Scott has been terminated, it’s time to for the Lakers to select the right coach for the role and IT’S NOT LUKE WALTON.
Come on people, I can coach the Warriors with the amount of talent on that team. All Luke Walton had to do was be a cheerleader on the sideline when he took over for Steve Kerr. All he needed was one of my old high school cheerleader uniforms and he would have been set. The Lakers don’t need a cheerleader, they need a real coach that has the ability to lead, build and get the players to buy into his strategic vision for the team. There are enough coaches in the league that lack the qualities, I just listed. Under the leadership of Mark Jackson, the Warriors players were taught the value of teamwork, disciple, ball movement, the importance of working together for the greater good of the team and he gave them confidence.
When there is not a team in the League mentioning hiring Mark Jackson as their next head coach, there is a dead cat on the line somewhere out there. People can pretend until the cows come home but it was Mark Jackson who built the house the Warriors win in.
The Lakers desperately need to hire Mark Jackson because the management needs guidance for the upcoming draft and that certainly can’t be left up to Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss because the two of them share the same brain.
I can’t sit back and watch the Lakers continue down this road of abyss without pointing out that, whatever negative comments Golden State’s management has made about Mark Jackson is just smoke and mirrors and the Lakers organization should not be fooled by the hype of Luke Walton.
THE LAKERS ORGANIZATION NEEDS TO WISE UP OR WE’RE IN FOR A BUMPY RIDE!!!!
I wonder what Luke Walton’s record would be if he was coaching the 76ers today, it probably would be the same if not worst, boom!!! Guys my nieces and nephews can coach Golden State.
Hey by the way, Patrick Ewing has proven that he will be a great head coach as well. Not only for the Lakers, Knicks, 76ers but for any other team looking for a good head coach, please wise up to what’s really going on.
