Mark Jackson has done a nice job with GS, but, jeezus, that guy is full of himself.

I am fairly certain Mark Jackson was one of the few media heads who was a big supporter of Kobe. So not sure why he is "full of himself".

Nothing against Kobe per se. But MJ seems to take himself a bit too seriously. Watch some youtube videos of him since he's become GS's coach: he acts as if he's doing God's work. He's a basketball coach. Period.

Yeah, please explain.

He actually is on record saying Kobe WOULD be better than MJ when it was all said and done. He's given the Lakers nothing but praise.

I guess it was the same God that day as when he cheated on his wife .

Anyways , I can't stand hearing a NBA player/coach invoking God when it comes to his career success :

Ha the son of a preacher. He grew up being preached to. He has every right to believe and say what he wants long as he disrespects no one. And at the end of the day, he's just saying if he knew, lets face it Kobe's the first to rupture an Achilles and force himself to stand and walk on his own sheer will, he would've taken a time out over having LA foul so Kobe could exit the game and be acknleodged, he respects Kobe that much

Mark Jackson is one of the down to earth good guys. He is one of the few ex-players that doesn't automatically hate on the Lakers out of jealousy.

I don't see anything wrong with Mark. If using God helps him and his coaching so be it.

Wait, what did he say wrong?

Nobody knew the extent of Kobe's injury. He walked out and took his free throws, and made them.

Lakers were planning to foul, and that's the right play. Mark was just being courteous is saying that he would've called a T/O, but it's not his teams job to do so.

I like Mark Jackson. Would've loved to see him replace Phil. Brings leadership and toughness. Can handle the LA spotlight, would've been worthy of coaching the Lakers.

Besides one strange response...

I like Mark Jackson a lot. He's always respected Kobe and he strikes me as a good guy. He's doing a GREAT job up in the Bay area and I wish him the best.

He probably should have called a timeout, but that's okay. No one is upset that he didn't.

The timeout thing never came in my mind until MJ stated it, I'm sure most of us were more worried about Kobe.

Yeah I mean it would have been a great show of respect, but we weren't expecting that and neither was anybody else. No one is upset about it and I don't think he should really worry about it.

Jackson comes across as a stand-up guy even if he is prone to hyperbole. With his "calling a time-out for 24" I took it more as a sign of respect and caring more about a player [a warrior I might add] since he used to be one. As for his opinion on the Lakers, anyone remember when the Rockets took the 2009 squad to seven? He said he was "done with picking them" which at the time was warranted. Jackson's alright in my book. He's no Stacey King, Heinsohn, Brent Barry or that Smith guy that sits with Lawler.

^^ Really well said, GCC. Totally agree with you. Not sure why someone would critique Mark Jackson for saying what he did when it is clearly out of respect and concern for Kobe. I don't see what this has to do with ego. That said, I don't think he could realistically tell at the time how hurt Kobe was - none of us did, except maybe Kobe. He still walked up under his own power and hit those free throws. Dude is unbelievable. Not human.

Well, if you really think about it, why would mark take a time out if Kobe decided to take the free throws? Taking the free throws indicates that you plan to continue playing.

In conclusion Kobe is a badass and mark Jackson is showing respect by going out of his way to make the comment.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.
