Following the Golden State Warriors June 6 decision to hire Mark Jackson as their head coach, the team will formally introduce Jackson at a Friday afternoon press conference at 1:30pm pacific time. The press conference will be broadcast live on CSN Bay Area (channel 40/720 on Comcast in the Bay Area) and can be viewed via live online stream at CSNBayArea.com and down below in this embedded video.
Given Mark Jackson's lack of coaching experience, it will be interesting to see what he has to say to the doubters. He's a very confident individual so I have to imagine he'll address the experience issue. The question is will he raise it in his own introductory comments or will he wait for the inevitable question on it from the press? Whatever happens we'll make sure and provide some analysis of what he has to say in what is a big day for the Warriors. Whether it's a step forward remains to be seen but it's certainly a hire that creates buzz.
