    Monta Ellis tree tattoo

    Monta Ellis‘ name has popped up in trade rumors over the last few weeks, and some have been wondering if the Warriors have been shopping Ellis, who has been putting up huge numbers over the last two seasons while leading the Warriors to little success. However, in an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe, Warriors…

  2. Mark Jackson talks about “culture change” for Warriors

    Jun 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Mark Jackson moved to the other side of the microphone for 30 minutes and spoke to the media as head coach of the Golden State Warriors Tuesday. He did not once say “mamma, there goes that man.” Which was a little disappointing. What he did talk about is something that has echoed through every discussion…

  3. Why Mark Jackson as coach might work: Players love it

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    From pundits to Warriors fans to other front offices around the league, there has been a lot of “Mark Jackson? Are you kidding me?” reactions to the hiring of the Warriors new coach. And during Game 4 of the NBA finals tonight, when Jackson says something foolish — like in Game 3 when he suggested…

    Apparently Mark Jackson just nailed his interview. Which he kind of had to, because he has no coaching resume. But Warriors consultant (and part owner) Jerry West sounded like a man very comfortable with the Warriors choice in an interview with Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. That should not be a surprise…

  5. Mark Jackson not Warrior’s first choice, but it doesn’t matter

    Jun 7, 2011, 8:45 AM EST

    Mark Jackson

    Plenty of people are not sold on Mark Jackson, the new coach of the Golden State Warriors. Apparently the Warriors were not either. Jackson was not the first choice, Matt Steinmetz reminds us at CSN Bay Area. When owner Joe Lacob and the Warriors started this search, experience was a key. Jackson has none. And…

  6. Mike Malone to become head assistant in Golden State, not Los Angeles

    Michael Malone

    The Warriors’ hiring of Mark Jackson now makes slightly more sense. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, former Cavaliers and Hornets defensive coordinator Michael Malone will be Mark Jackson’s lead assistant in Golden State. Mike Brown, who Malone coached under before, wanted Malone on his staff, but the Warriors’ new ownership would not be…

  9. Report: Mark Jackson is the frontrunner for Golden State

    Jun 6, 2011, 2:37 PM EST

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    People who have met with new Warriors owner Joe Lacob have described him as an out of the box thinker. Which is pretty much a cliché statement in and of itself at this point, but we’ll go with it. Because it sounds like he is close to doing something very out of the box, according…

    May 30, 2011, 12:27 PM EST

    mark_jackson_250_080306

    Would you hire a man who says “Mamma, there goes that man” as your head coach? A guy who says “give me better offense any day” every game? The Golden State Warriors are apparently considering it. Former player and current ESPN/ABC analyst Mark Jackson is a finalist for the Warriors head coaching job, according to…

    Yahoo! Sports reports that former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Mark Jackson interviewed for the head coaching position for the Golden State Warriors shortly after Keith Smart was let go.

    Dec 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo sat out today against the New Jersey Nets, his hamstring still sore and the team wanting to play it safe. Why safe? Because Rondo is having a historic season. So far, Rondo is averaging 14.1 assists and 11.4 points per game, orchestrating a more balanced Celtics attack. In a great note at the…

    There may never have been a better pure shooter to play the game than Reggie Miller. That’s the kind of player that should end up in the Hall of Fame. And he might, Miller appears the most likely NBA player for induction on the ballot for the Naismith Hall of Fame, with the players nominated…

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:13 PM EST

    The Clippers’ coaching search is finally underway, and one lucky head coach will have the opportunity to write themselves into the Clipper lore.

  17. What's next for the Hawks?

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:31 PM EST

    Atlanta has been very deliberate in their coaching search, but they clearly liked Avery Johnson. The met with him three times, including last weekend. Little word was coming from the team, but Johnson seemed to be a frontrunner. Johnson’s with the Nets. So, now what? It’s down to Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey, Hawks assistant Larry…

    Jun 4, 2010, 10:01 AM EST

  20. Hornets are not waiting in coaching search

    May 7, 2010, 9:39 AM EST

    There are a lot of teams looking for a head coach for next season, and most are taking their time. Chicago Bulls staff said as much, while the Los Angeles Clippers have been stone silent. Not the New Orleans Hornets. They are on it. Five interviews in three days, including two more on Thursday, according…

  21. Mark Jackson now being picky about NBA coaching gig he wants

    May 6, 2010, 10:22 AM EST

    Mark Jackson wants a team to take a leap of faith on him, to pluck him out of the broadcasting booth and with no coaching experience put him at the head of an NBA bench. Well, he doesn’t want just any team to take that leap, it turns out. Not Philadelphia, as the Philadelphia Inquirer…

  22. Mark Jackson, Monty Williams – come on down. You're the next contestants on coach the Sixers

    May 4, 2010, 10:56 AM EST

    New Orleans is leaving no stone unturned in their search for a new coach who can keep Chris Paul from bolting town in 2012. That is job number one, don’t forget. Two seasons may seem like a long time away to worry about such things, but two more seasons like this last one will have…

  25. Mark Jackson still hoping for a coaching gig

    Apr 19, 2010, 1:32 PM EST

    It can happen. It really can. You can jump from the broadcast booth into the head coach’s chair and make it work. Pat Riley did it when Jerry Buss tapped him in Los Angeles. Doc Rivers did it, although he looked pretty bad as a coach for a while, until Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen…
