Despite the fact that Mark Jackson led the Golden State Warriors to one of the best seasons in franchise history, he could soon be unemployed.
Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry told the San Jose Mercury News that “Jackson deserves to be the coach of the Warriors.”
But Curry, whose All-Star year lifted the Warriors to 51 wins during the regular season, was clear in saying that he believed Mark Jackson “deserves to be our coach” and return next season.
“I love Coach more than anybody, and I think for him to be in a situation where his job is under scrutiny and under question is totally unfair,” Curry said. “And it would definitely be a shock to me if anything like that were to happen.
“I’m going to voice my support for Coach.”
“What Coach has gone through this year has been unlike anything I’ve seen — just the amount of distractions and the circus that’s been around him and decisions he’s had to make,” Curry said. “We came into the season thinking this was a long-term situation, but obviously he’s been having to answer these questions all year.”
Curry is only going to be able to do so much to help keep his job.
