Remember when Mark Jackson was the head coach of the Warriors?
During a recent conversation with ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Warriors GM Bob Myers shared the following story:
"I made a mistake with Mark one time -- after a game we lost, I went up to him right after we lost and asked him -- I think Curry had been having a big game and he ran a play for Carl Landry to take a shot to win the game; and it was a good play and it was a good shot.
"And I went up to Mark and I went, 'Did you think about Curry?' And he looked at me, and you could tell he was kind of containing himself, and he said, 'It was a good play. It was a good play.' And I look at him and I thought, 'I will never do that again.' If I don't trust the decisions the coach makes, then he's not the right coach.
"The coach gets to decide, right? I learned that lesson with Mark that I was completely out of line in asking him. And I apologized, and I'll never forget that lesson that I learned for myself ... I was wrong. And I learned that. So you learn more from mistakes sometimes. I don't do the debriefing with my coach after the game. Win or lose."
The Warriors fired Jackson a couple days after dropping Game 7 to the Clippers in the opening round of the playoffs.
Myers was named NBA Executive of the Year in 2015 and 2017.
