Golden State has fired coach Mark Jackson, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

Where do you think he ends up, and who replaces him?

He seems like a primetime fit in Indy and will keep their identity intact. Complete overhaul for LA but I think his type of coaching would really resonate with and keep Kobe happy.

Good I have no respect for Mark Jackson. All he does is whine and cry in the playoffs. He cried about Stephan curry getting fouled hard last years playoffs when six weeks earlier he said he would foul him hard if he was on the other side.

Fast forward to this year, and the sick bastard tries to use sterlings racism to his advantage by telling clippers fans they should boycott the games. The guy has no shame.

he was a Preacher not an X's & O's guy. I'm sure the Warriors management know more then we do. I wish him the best. he did a great job with the Warriors.

Mark Jackson doesn't want to leave California since his family is in LA. He commuted from LA to Oakland to coach The Warriors. Either he goes back to broadcasting or to the Lakers.

The Warriors are capable of 50 wins without MJ. Warriors obviously have someone else in mind if they fired Jackson. its not always about results. A lot of crap happened internally with MJ and the Front Office. I hope those details come out.


George Karl Fired after 57 wins last season w/ Nuggets

Lionel Hollins Fired after 57 wins last season w/ Grizzlies and making it to the Western Conference Finals.

Vinny Del Negro Fired after 56 Wins Last Season w/ Clippers. (one less win then Doc Rivers)


Its not always about record or results...

Why don't we reserve judgement until we see who replaces him and how the team performs. Ownership is after a championship. They brought in bogut, the brought in iggy, and the monta trade was absolutely the best move, and people were angry about that when it happened. Haven't they proved they have the franchise's best interest in mind?

If Hollins was still the coach, I guarantee you with his lockerroom, veteran coach leadership and statesmanship, presence and mentorship, we would have seen a much calmer Z-Bo who doesn't make that boneheaded play that gets him suspended for game 7.

Dave Yaeger is a rookie head coach. When asked about the suspension, he didn't even know how to respond. The guy looked like he was crying before game 7 and couldn't even give a fitting reply for Z-Bo. Just called it unfortunate. Seemed like a guy who was okay in taking it in the butt by the league.

You still don't have a point. The year Klay is a FA, they have about 35 million committed in cap space, so they have more than enough to sign Klay and the year after that everyone would be a FA so they can resign Curry and some other high priced FA's to go along with Curry and Klay. They are set up pretty good.

I love the top comment on that article "It took a half season for Memphis to adjust to their new coach after Hollins was fired and they almost didn't make the playoffs"

I don't care who the replacement is, we will not finish higher than the sixth seed next year, there's going to be too many changes, the new head coach will likely bring in some new assistants, our bench will likely change. Too many changes, we're not getting HCA next year so I don't even want to see people talking about it like it's a possibility. It's not happening now, the chemistry just got turned on it's head.

The issue I have with this, although it's being reported as "mutual" the issue wasn't with Jacksons coaching ability, it was personal issues with management, the front office didn't like him so he's gone. The front office don't need to like everyone they employ, they just need to respect them and the fact of the matter is they should be putting their personal B.S aside and doing what is right for the team and what will bring us the most success.

I wish Coach the best of luck wherever he goes and I am very sad to see him leave, he is the best coach we've had in over two decades, and one of the best coaches we've had in the history of this franchise, yep, I said it.



It all comes down to who they bring in as a replacement. If they bring in a guy like SVG, imo they're just swapping like for like which is stupid, you don't throw away the guy you've been working with who has great chemistry with the players and has took us into the playoffs twice in the 3 years he was here, for a guy that is just as good as a coach. What's the point on ****ing up that chemistry? If they bring in someone like Kerr who has never coached before, what's the point? You're throwing away a successful and talented coach for a guy that we have no idea how he'll turn out.

I don't see any available coaches that are significantly better than Jackson, not enough that it merits getting rid of him.

Let's hope the front office have a good plan put in place to bring in someone of a very high caliber, let's hope it wasn't just some petty personal B.S


I haven't been this disappointed by the front office since we traded that first rounder for Marcus Williams.


But I'll reserve judgement, my initial disappointment is just a knee jerk reaction in the heat of the moment, who they replace Jackson with will let us know if the front office truly has improved as much as it seemed.

I disagree.

Frankly, I don't get why people have already put Mark onto such a pedestal :shrug: Yes, his team has gradually improved. Yes, they absolutely should have and would have regardless of who's coaching. I'm not going to pretend like I can judge coaches who have coached one core of players all that well, and I don't think any of us outsiders really can. But I'm just not 100% sold. On the court it's worked out. Clearly there's a mess going on off of it. But it's best one core of players, a core of players that were young and improving, and a core that had talent added to it externally each and every year. Any coach is going to improve those teams to some huge extent. The same extent as Jackson did? I can't say for certain...neither can you.

At the very least, I just don't know how certain we can be that he's as great of a coach as some people think. I'd take SVG over him in a heart beat. Gimme Karl over him. Give me the other Van Gundy. Sloan? Why are we certain Mark is better than Carlesimo or Hollins?

Change can be bad, but it can also be good. Only time will tell. I'm not gonna get fake outraged over this right now. I don't think anyone should.

I'm guessing it will be another "players coach". Someone who can come in and give a good speech about earning their trust etc. Probably SVG but who knows. I think it was unfair of them to fire Mark Jackson but if they bring in someone who has the same vibe I think they can salvage the heart of the players.

You are underestimating how good the West is. Teams like Memphis, Phoenix and Minnesota will be even better next season. Maybe even Denver.

Hell if Bledsoe never got hurt for the Suns, there's a good chance that either GS, Dallas or Memphis wouldn't have made playoffs.

Same with Marc Gasol for the Grizz.

I follow the team pretty closely. MJ did a great job as a coach but from everything I have been reading about him, He was hard to deal with and did not get along with anyone in the front office.

some things that happened over the course of his tenure:

- brought negative attention to the Warriors being involved in adultery with a stripper and being Extorted for money.
- has ties to a Drug Kingpin that works at his church
- Was annoyed that Mike Malone (kings Coach) got more credit then he did in the Xs Os.
- MJ Does not allow Jerry West to practices and does not like it when Jerry talks to the players because he believes instruction should only come from coaches.
- Drama with Brian Scalabrine and got him reassigned.
- Owner told him to move to Northern California to be closer to the team but he decided to commute from LA.

like I said, its a lot of BS.

LOL, drug king pin? I hadn't heard that one, got to love the tabloids.

He didn't reassign Scal for nothing, Scal, a third string assistant, argued and shouted at Jackson constantly, he refused to talk to ANY of the coaching staff for five weeks.

He wasn't annoyed about Malone, they're still close friends and Malone stated categorically that Jackson chose all of the plays.



FYI, it wasn't just Jackson, the entire staff has been fired, even the video guy.


Some reactions from players....


Carl Landry: Mark Jackson is arguably the best coach that organization has seen in 18 years and you fire him? I don't get it?

Green on next coach: "You never know if a coach will relate to you the way he did. You never know if another coach is going to respect you the way he did. Coach rode with us. He was down for us. I can't really judge their decision. I don't know what it's based on. Is it we should've went farther? Is it off the court stuff?"

O'Neal; "I just want to say thank you for being a fantastic leader, coach, and more than anything a friend! It was a pleasure to play for you and I have no doubt that you will have continued success no matter where you go or what you do!"

Speights; The next team who hire Coach Jackson will be lucky to have a good coach in a great leader!

If Hollins was still the coach, I guarantee you with his lockerroom, veteran coach leadership and statesmanship, presence and mentorship, we would have seen a much calmer Z-Bo who doesn't make that boneheaded play that gets him suspended for game 7.
Dave Yaeger is a rookie head coach. When asked about the suspension, he didn't even know how to respond. The guy looked like he was crying before game 7 and couldn't even give a fitting reply for Z-Bo. Just called it unfortunate. Seemed like a guy who was okay in taking it in the butt by the league.

how could u possibly guarantee that when it was his only mistake of the whole series and happend in teh heat of the moment. Who cares if the new coach didnt know how to respond what is that going to change?

Denver was terrible this season and Memphis lost in the first round. Kind of just proving everyone's point.

do you follow the nba? the nuggets lost 3 of their starters this year (gallo, koufos, iguadala), and suffered injuries to Nate and McGee. The grizzlies lost Marc Gasol, their best player for a huge chunk of the season and were ridiculously good with their starting 5 healthy. They lost ZBO for game 7, who knows what happens if he was there. this is not proving your point. he's absolutely right that coaches with good records get fired. the only thing guaranteeing you any safety in this league is a title. Thibs, Vogel, and Jackson have all been linked to rumors that they may be leaving their teams. At the end of the day if the coaches and the management aren't on the same page, the coach gets fired. Karl was in constant disagreement with management and had absurdly awful in game tactics thus he was fired. These things are based on relationships as much as results, this is a what have you done for me lately league and sometimes a coaching change can do a lot of good (firing doug collins in chicago to hire phil jackson despite regular season success being a good example).

I wanted MJ to be extended, I thought he deserved it, but in the end its just another coach. I don't know all that happened off the court, but Im sure it was enough to get MJ fired after two great seasons.

MJ was a great motivator, but wasn't that great of a coach. Our offense had lapses of mediocrity and Hated his Hockey substations.

it will probably hurt the players chemistry in the beginning but in the end they will get it together. Im sure they're more worried about their minutes and money.


Im sure our front office will find a good coach in the end. they are proven that they want to win at the highest levels and I have no doubt in that. Im more worried about our bench and finding a LEGIT back up PG.

Clearly there was a major issue between jackson and warriors management because he did not deserve to be fired based on performance alone.

Having said that, can we please stop acting as if jackson is a great coach? The guy spends a majority of his team speaking in metaphors or quoting inspirational phrases. He had a great roster in GS but there's a large number of coaches who could have had the success that he had there. GS will continue to be good without Jackson.

lol, please

Both shocked and confused, like the day I woke up on someones lawn in my undies with some blood in them. I thought Jackson was our coach for the future, I really hope Lacob doesn't screw this up. If it had to be done, it had to be done, but I admit I am nervous about the immediate future.

As a Warriors fan I'm a little glad to see Jackson go but at the end of the day, as an owner, you HAVE to listen to the voice of your players. From what I understand everyone except maybe Andrew Bogut supported Jackson. Now Lacob has to deal with the possibly of a disgruntled locker room and most importantly a Stephen Curry who may want out within three years time.

I find it very ironic and idiotic that the Warriors are interested in Steve Kerr. What's the point of hiring a guy with absolutely no coaching experience and hope that he brings your team to the finals when three seasons ago they put all their faith into Mark Jackson who also had NO EXPERIENCE whatsoever? Why repeat the cycle?

They need to find an established coach who emphasizes defense and ball movement and not frequent run/gun and half court isolations.

Not the brightest move IMO.

It's one thing if you have an upper echelon coach like Pops, Thibs, or Doc Rivers. It's a completely different story if you're not sure that you can land one of those coaches.

Marc Jackson led GSW to their best record in 2 decades, had their starting Center in Bogut miss the entire play offs and still took a healthy Clippers team to 7 games, and had 100% buy in from the roster including the Star Players.

Dunno, it just seems like a really, REALLY big gamble with a team that is doing that well.

It was the right decision, the Warriors need a 'real coach'. Mark Jackson couldn't get the best out of Iggy all year, and it was basically a useless free agent signing. His inbounds plays were not that good. I noticed he failed to call timeouts when the other team was building momentum. He let his team just play scrimmage and run wild.

The Warriors coaching job is a dream job. Because they have a top 3-5 PG, a solid starting line up. They just need a better coach that can take them to that next level and maximize their potential. I didn't think Jackson maximized their potential.

Constantly pointing out a person of faith's issues doesn't make Mark Jackson any less of a Christian or a man. Your anti-Christian tirade, you think, is just an easy way for lambasting religion. Get over it, everybody makes mistakes and everybody has moments of weakness. If you did any research on Mark's faith then you'd realize that your entire argument is flawed.

oh you're right, the nuggets losing 5 of their 9 rotation players from last year isn't the reason they sucked this year, it was because of the loss of George Karl.... moron. Iggy is a missing player, though i am over it (how did you fair with him?) You are comparing last year to this year he was there last year he wasn't there this year how is that not missing.... that must go right over your head. Koufos was one of the most effective offensive rebounders and rim protectors in the league last year, not empty numbers at all. and gallo was their best player when he went down, but no it's all GK leaving that made them suck. and with memphis, the best record in the league after Gasol comes back but no, it's their new coach that sucks. this is why i question whether you watch the nba, people know these things.

Cry all you want about Mark Jackson being gone, but GSW will probably be better off, I really don't see what Mark Jackson did in GSW to make people think he is so great. All he's ever done is outcoach GK for one series, and every coach outcoaches GK in the playoffs.

so you would take vogel over Jackson have you seen the pacers lately

I didn't know Vogel was also sleeping with hibberts girl. Here I thought it was just Paul George who divided the looker room.

I was so happy for Mark Jackson becoming the coach of the Warriors. Mainly so I wouldn't have to hear "Mama, there goes that man" and "hand down, man down" and other clichès when he was a commentator. I don't know how much he affected that team as they seemed pretty stacked yet a 6th place finish seemed kind of low this year but if the players loved him then that has to account for something. Of course, the whole adultery situation with him being a "man of God" puts a sour taste in my mouth. And it's funny that the only adultery he 'fessed up to was the chick that blackmailed him. Call me skeptical, but those are the worst kind of Christians. You want to believe in those fairy tales then great. But walk the goddamned walk if you're going to talk the goddamned talk.

so cuz he got some booty he doesn't deserve to be an nba coach:shrug: and wtf does religion have to do with coaching :facepalm: the point is dude won 50 games and almost beat the clippers with half of his roster Jackson is a good coach and I wouldn't mind him coaching the knicks

Horrible decision by a gutter franchise. Mark Jackson was/is a great coach and has been unjustly terminated due to ego and hyper-sensitivity.

Back to the cellar you go.

Not sure how I got owned there? He just followed up a post full of opinions with another one full of opinions. He made the point of Gallo leading the team in scoring... I obviously can't deny that. Gallo easily played his best ball under Karl, and my argument all along with you has been that this is your first losing season in the last 10 (and sans Karl). Sure, you can argue that injuries, and losing rentals from the previous season played as large of a role. We can both be right here, but what I am not, is wrong.

None of those teams are better off yet. LAC performed better during the regular season, we will see if it works in the playoffs. In your opinion they are better off, but neither one of them has done anything better than last season.

I wouldn't ask either the Laker or the Knicks organization(s) for basketball related advice right now. I don't think Shaw is a good coach. You can try all you want to change my mind, it's not going to work.

Good coaches find a way to win. That has not changed.

I've edited my post to remove insults, I don't want to fight with you about this. I realize I was dogging your team at first, that was wrong of me.

Memphis switched coaches and almost missed the playoffs.

I think that might have had more to do with marc gasol missing a huge chunk of the season

my guess is that you dont actually watch warriors games and just look at their record compared to past years. Anybody who watches the games and doesnt see what a serious issue the isolation plays were- either doesnt know basketball or is too blinded by their love for mark jackson that they dont want to believe he was holding them back
