    No question Jackson improved the team. It was also past time for him to go when they fired him. He had a limited tool box, he had an antiquated offensive scheme, his ego got in the way of improving the staff. The offense/defense/win %/playoff %/titles got better after he left ... a lot better.

    No way! The Warriors were in the black when he took over. Kerr carried over the trend and inherited a masterpiece. His offense would’ve improved he had no choice!

    However, Jackson’s defense is better than Kerr’s defense using the eye test. The games changed a lot since Jackson coaches this team

    Warriors 2010-2011 record was 36-46 .439 though. They immediately got worse when he came on board- then talent got better on the team. (IE Klay Thompson Jarrett jack, and Carl landry.., then draymond green, and harrison barnes, then iggy and Jermain Oneil)

    Kerr got the team and added Livingston and got 16 more wins right off the bat (while the team was learning a new system)

    Yes, Kerr took over a much better team than Jackson did. But Jackson's team was backsliding in his last year.

    Jackson's Warriors teams defense at their peak didn't hold a candle to the Kerr teams'. The #1 offense, #1 pace, #1 defense had never been done before because it's incredibly difficult.

    I still think you must be trolling.

    Livingston, Adams and Gentry are about 16 wins. Yup that does actually make sense

    Jackson wasn’t fired. His contract wasn’t renewed. Yes there’s a difference.

    We’d have never become what we have if he had been renewed. His ego was too big and his offensive ideas were outdated.

    There’s no way of knowing whether Jackson’s trajectory would’ve continued on its current pace.

    It makes sense that they’d improve by 16 games with a better offense + Livingston.

    The Dubs were always destined for greatness we saw that in Jackson’s last year. Kerr doesn’t just come in and all of a sudden they were contenders. They were contenders before he got there. This was evident when Draymond shut LeBron down on the last play at that game in Miami. That’s when it became clear. They just needed to mature and get more confidence. Jackson did that for them.

    Do you honestly honestly believe there were not significant structural and personal issues with Jackson and the Warriors?
