A look at the coaches available for the Detroit Pistons starts the coach who can go just about anywhere who is unexpectedly looking for a job or rather a job looking for him.
Mark Jackson improved the Golden State Warriors every year for three years. He took a perennial cellar dweller into a contender. Remember they lost to the Clippers in seven games without their best post defender in Andrew Bogut and an injured thirty-seven old Jermaine O’Neal.
The Golden State Warriors won fifty-one games this season. That would’ve been good enough for third in the Eastern conference. Players love to play for Mark Jackson. Jackson preaches defense and can maybe bring this team together.
Jackson is a master communicator who specializes in getting the most of his guards. Imagine what Jackson can do for the growth of Brandon Jennings and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. As good as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are; Mark Jackson took them to another level.
In the past the Detroit Pistons players seemed to have too many agendas and lacking a singular voice. Mark Jackson eliminates all of those ideas and has one voice. He instills an “us against the world” attitude where he and his players hunkered down and excelled. That attitude gets the most out of his players. All we want in Detroit is a chance for the Pistons to win some games and improve. Mark Jackson has a proved track record of doing just that and should be the top choice on the Detroit Pistons coaching wish list.
