Stephen Curry: Mark Jackson ‘Deserves To Be Our Coach’

Mark Jackson

The San Jose Mercury News has some comments made by Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. Curry apparently wants Mark Jackson to be the team’s coach:

But Curry, whose All-Star year lifted the Warriors to 51 wins during the regular season, was clear in saying that he believed Mark Jackson “deserves to be our coach” and return next season.

“I love Coach more than anybody, and I think for him to be in a situation where his job is under scrutiny and under question is totally unfair,” Curry said. “And it would definitely be a shock to me if anything like that were to happen.

“I’m going to voice my support for Coach.”

“What Coach has gone through this year has been unlike anything I’ve seen — just the amount of distractions and the circus that’s been around him and decisions he’s had to make,” Curry said. “We came into the season thinking this was a long-term situation, but obviously he’s been having to answer these questions all year.”
