Multiple players have told me they get the sense (Warriors Coach Mark) Jackson could end up leaving – whether it is by Jackson’s choice or management’s. Whether these divisive undercurrents are problematic remains to be seen.
“I love coach and everything he’s about,” (Stephen) Curry told reporters after practice on Wednesday.
Curry, clearly, is opting to rally around Jackson. You have to wonder if that could potentially put management at odds with its star (who already is playing at a discounted rate) and how that impacts the future. Curry went as far as declaring he wanted to be heard before management decided what to do with Jackson (extend his contract or fire him are the likely options).
