Mark Jackson is a terrific coach and has led the Golden State Warriors to a 23-13 record and a definite playoff berth in the Western Conference. What gives? Why is he such a good coach to his own players? Mark Jackson believes he is a good coach. He believes in doing things the right way and preaches what he coaches. He never disciplines his players by punishing them. He forgives them for what they are doing. Warriors starting power forward David Lee says because of the way Jackson is he will be around for a long time.
