Oh, hey, looks like this NBA lockout thing is going to keep going. Not great, NBA! Not. Great. At least we have Grantland’s Jonathan Abrams, who is filling his down time talking to NBA players about their down time. Abrams mixed it up this time and spoke with Mark Jackson, whose first year of coaching the Golden State Warriors will get going once the lockout is resolved. So 2016, maybe? Right now he’s focused on his other gig, as a full-time pastor.
A quick reminder: Coaches, executives, owners, etc. can’t discuss current players, or else they face a fine from the league.
"Shucks, I don't even know, man!” Gus Johnson cackled, as he struggled to describe his recent move from CBS to FOX. “It just feels good."
"It's pure," he said. "How about that?"
