Former Golden State Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson Gets Emotional After Warriors Advance To The NBA Finals
After losing in the first round against the LA Clippers last season, Mark Jackson was fired even though the Warriors won 51 games. Many thought Jackson’s firing was unjust but Jackson was strong-willed and burned many bridges with Warriors front office that eventually led to his exit.
Jackson then returned to the booth to announce national games on ESPN and was tapped to call the Warriors-Rockets Western Conference Finals.
After the Warriors beat the Rockets to advance to the finals many of his former players went over to embrace him and he got a little choked up when he tried to give his thoughts about his former team and their success.
You have to feel for Jackson, he built this team and watched them grow over the years into a formidable contender. Now he has to watch from the sidelines as they go on to the NBA finals.
