Dysfunctional Warriors: Jackson's power play

 

In what's become an increasingly dysfunctional atmosphere, Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has forced a reassignment of assistant coach Brian Scalabrine, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

 

Ownership and management have been strong advocates of Scalabrine and his performance on the job, sources told Yahoo Sports. Nevertheless, Warriors officials decided that as long as Jackson is the head coach, he'll have control of his coaching staff.

 

Over the past two years, Jackson's difficulty with managing his coaching staff and creating a functional work environment has developed into one of the issues that threatens his future on the job, league sources said.

 

Jackson, in his third year at the helm of the Warriors, has one year left on his contract, but has come under increased scrutiny within the organization for how he has run the team and worked on the job. There have been no conversations about an extension for Jackson – nor are they expected to take place, sources said.

 

Jackson, 48, had tried and failed to get involved with several head-coaching openings over the past year, including the Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets, league sources said.

Not good for Golden State, when your coach is already thinking about greener pastures.  Sounds like Mark is looking at teams that are already gonna contend for a championship rather than building one in Golden State... wow...  Wonder what Curry and Thompson and Barnes think about all this.   Despite their off-season the Warriors aren't that much better than they were last year and are 2 losses away from being out of the playoffs so.... there's that too.

I'd pull a Clippers / Doc Rivers gambit to get Jackson here with the Lakers.  Adjust the little man game to accommodate more traditional post play that actually wins rings and I'm all in.

Wonder why all the problems. They are having a pretty good season and the team seems to just keep getting better.

they seem to be stuck in mid card level.  

if I'm the Lakers I dangle a guy like Gasol in front of them. He's a post presence that team is desperately missing and with all the shooters on that team he'd fit right in with how he wants to play.   Offer them Pau for Harrison Barnes whom after having a breakout playoffs with 14/5 in the first round and 17/7 in the second round against San Antonio has had his role severely diminished as he was sent to the bench and his confidence seems shaken.  Especially with Mark Jackson now not using him correctly anymore nor having him cut to the basket.

Jackson seems obsessed with the three point aspect of his team so much so that we rarely see them cut to the basket anymore which is why I'd say to watch how he used a guy like Bazemore whose strength is coming off screens to cuts yet Mark refuses to run the offense that way.    

As deadly a shooter as Steph Curry is how many screens do you see him come off of to get his shots off?  Exactly. 

Combine that kind of thinking with no post presence and you have a team that's middle of the pack.   But Jackson is already apparently thinking about greener pastures so I doubt he worries about it as much as he should.

They will never win as long as they insist on playing a game with no interior defense or an ability to slow the game down.  You have to be able to win games not only in different paces, but specifically a slow down game which the playoffs always become.  They're addicted to small ball since the "Run TMC" years and it doesn't / won't ever work.

Hmm, sounds familiar ...

Mark Jackson is just not a good coach. He doesn't coach, he is just a motivational speaker. His assistants draw up their schemes while he stands and watches. Sounds familiar.

 

I knew this wouldn't last long especially when Mike Malone left.

He stands, watches and preaches and gives cocky post game interviews.  He's more a reverend than a coach.

I don't want Jackson as a coach. There are a lot of negative and politically incorrect things I could say about him, but the critical things are that he makes bad rotations and doesn't know how to adjust. We've had that problem since Phil left, no thanks.

^ He might be forced to embrace the triangle though. You don't think someone like Kerr would be likelier?

to me if Phil really wants a coach that's gonna embrace the triangle he should be looking at Virginia's coach Tony Bennett that ran it along with some Princeton to perfection for the Virginia NCAA team to a number 1 ranking.

Or let them hire Rambis.
