Mark Jackson returns to ESPN

Former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has reached a multiyear agreement to return to ESPN as an NBA game analyst.

Mark Jackson will return to ESPN as an NBA game analyst, reuniting with Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy.
Jackson will work Sunday during ESPN's telecast of of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.

Jackson will join play-by-play commentator Mike Breen and fellow analyst Jeff Van Gundy, reuniting the trio that broadcast the NBA Finals for five consecutive years starting in 2011.

A former All-Star point guard during his 17-year career as a player, Jackson was fired by the Warriors earlier this month following the team's first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors have hired Steve Kerr, another analyst without coaching experience.

The Warriors went 51-31 this season under Jackson, posting their best record since 1991-92.

Jackson went 121-109 in three seasons with Golden State, which reached the postseason each of the last two years. He had been mentioned as a possible candidate for the New York Knicks' vacant head coaching position.

If you can't get rid of Mike Breen, do the next best thing, add more people to drown out that turd's terrible commentary.

Mike Tirico, Breen and Kerr would be the worst crew to ever call a game.

I wish they could kick Breen out and add in CWebb. You know, someone who knows what they are talking about.

It was a real treat, surprise to see the band together again last night while watching Game 1 of the Heat-Pacers game. I did not expect Mark to make the return this quickly. Regardless, it was great to see because JVG and Mark make a great combo
