Let's go back to this "no experience" thing for a second.
Every NBA head coach has to start somewhere—as an assistant, a college coach, a scout, etc.
But in Mark Jackson's case, this is his first coaching job—ever. He has never coached a single basketball game in his life.
So why did the Warriors hire him?
Maybe they saw something in that he played point guard in the NBA for 17 years, where he was a leader who always demanded his teammates to play to the best of their abilities.
But let's settle this right now—having success as an NBA player does not necessarily translate to having success as an NBA coach.
Fairly successful NBA players Isaiah Thomas, Elgin Baylor and Wes Unseld all rank among the 25 worst coaches in NBA history.
The point is that a lack of experience can lead to many coaching mistakes, which are explained in the next slide.
