Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson joined the show to talk about what he expects this season and to take a look around the NBA.

Jackson weighed in on the Lakers coaching situation. “Mike Brown is a heckuva basketball coach and they’ll figure it out,” Jackson said.

Jackson weighed in on LeBron James. He said that he’s very tough to stop in the box because he’s so big. Opposing teams have to help and it causes problems.

Dan asked Jackson if they were close to landing Dwight Howard. “We were certainly in the mix,” Jackson said. “We were willing to mortgage the future and take the risk.”
