Just not seeing the improvement.
Mark Jackson didn't get a fair shake last year with the NBA lockout. No offseason, no training camp and, most importantly, no experience, gave Mark Jackson almost no chance last season.
This year there will be no excuses, which might lead to the ultimate demise of Jackson as head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
Their defense is better, but that was expected with the new talent they brought in.
The Warriors offense looks stagnant and with so much emphases being put on the defensive side, it's almost like the Warriors forgot how to run an offense. The pieces are there to get up and down the court to make for an explosive offense, but Jackson doesn't seem to be interested in doing that.
The biggest failure this far has been the handling of end-game strategies.
The loss to the Denver Nuggets on November 10 is the perfect example of why Jackson may not last very long. After Klay Thompson fired an ill-advised three rather than run the clock, the Warriors found themselves in a timeout up by two points with seconds left and a foul to give.
When play resumed, not only did they fail to use the foul they had to give, they let Danilo Gallinari drive to the hoop for an uncontested dunk to tie the game.
After a timeout, don't they have to know they have a foul to give? They didn't even try to foul him to stop an easy two points. It's things like this where Jackson appears to be lost and his inexperience shines brightly.
The Los Angeles Lakers, who fired their coach after a slow start in his second year, is a franchise that the Warriors would like to compete against. If Golden State wants to portray that winning mentality, Jackson might be shown the door next.
