Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob apologized Sunday for comments he made last week at a venture capitalists luncheon in Menlo Park regarding his reasons for firing coach Mark Jackson.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mark Jackson and what he accomplished as our head coach,” Lacob wrote in an e-mail to this newspaper. “He did a terrific job. I’ve said that many times over the last several months and in recent days, including at this week’s event.

“I was asked to draw comparisons earlier this week between building businesses in the tech world and the sports world and, unfortunately, I used some poor judgment. That’s my mistake. I did attempt to reach out to Mark on Friday, and I certainly apologize for my comments and any unintended harm. I know that Mark will succeed again in this business.”

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
