In his second season as head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Mark Jackson has successfully led his young, talented team to a playoff berth for the first time in what seems like forever for the franchise. Actually, it’s been six years.
Jackson, who had no prior coaching experience, is probably one of the favorites for Coach of the Year because of his.
Jackson was so moved by this accomplishment, that it brought his to tears according to the Contra Costa Times. You love to see this type of emotion in sports. It shows that your heart is definitely into it.
Let’s just hope Golden State can make some noise in the postseason.
Though it’s been expected, the feat had Warriors coach Mark Jackson in tears.
“There’s no shame in my game,” the second-year coach said. “I’m an emotional, sensitive guy. You live long enough, you learn to appreciate the process, the struggle and the accomplishments. I cry because I know what these guys put into it. I know what they mean to each other. I also cry because it could be somebody else in a suit and tie sitting in the big chair. I cry because God has blessed me once again.”
