More news from the NBA today. I knew Durant was going to win the MVP, that was basically a guarantee, but even though rumors were that Mark Jackson was coaching for his job against the Clippers, I can’t believe that they actually went through with it and fired him. What a fucking joke. In the 17 seasons before Jackson arrived as the coach, the Warriors made the playoffs once. One fucking time in 17 years. They’ve had back to back winning seasons his last 2 years, bettering his record from 47-35 the first year to 51-31 this past year. They made the playoffs in back to back seasons, the first time since the ’90-’91, ’91-’92 seasons. It wasn’t just the fact that he won games, he had every last person on that team 100% him. As soon as the rumors started swirling that he was coaching for his job against the Clippers, EVERYONE on the Warriors strongly voiced their opinion that they love their coach and absolutely believe he is the guy who will lead they’re young team to a championship caliber team. On top of that, Mark Jackson is just straight up a basketball guy. Someone everyone who knows anything about basketball respects. The fact that some rich, white, more than likely piece of shit of an owner who probably can’t even make a free throw if his life depended on it has the balls to oust Jackson as coach is ludicrous. I don’t know what’s happened with owners recently. It’s like if they don’t win the Championship that year, everyone has to go. We saw it last year with George Carl being fired the same year that he won COACH OF THE YEAR. Cause that makes sense. And now this shit. Owners need to chill the fuck out. Only one team can win each year. And guess what, you’re not going to win every time. That’s not how it works. Jackson was the perfect guy for this team to continue to learn and grow under as they all move into their prime. It’s an absolute joke that Jackson could be fired after the job he has done for a team that had been horrendous for plenty of years before he showed up. Fuck Joe Lacob (owner of the Warriors). Sweet last name you fucking prick.
