Nearing seven years since he was fired by Golden State, Mark Jackson remains eager for coaching work and still unable to find an opportunity. The former Knick acknowledged that the “narrative” surrounding his stint with the Warriors is a factor in being blackballed, and Jackson specifically defended himself against the accusation that he forced Steph Curry to go to church to heal his balky ankle. “When you make a statement and say I force folks to come to church — are you kidding me? What sense does that make?” Jackson said on ‘The Boardroom: Out of Office Podcast” with host Rich Kleiman. “Never in my life have I forced people to go to church.”
The book portrayed Curry as a willing participant in the ceremony, but the public reaction was a fanatical Jackson had forced intense religion on his player. “First of all, Steph Curry believes if he goes to God in prayer, he will be healed from his ankle issues. Steph Curry himself believes that. So therefore if it did happen, or if it didn’t happen, at the end of the day, he’s healed,” Jackson said on the podcast. “And I thank God that he’s healed and he went on to become one of the truly great players in this game, a superstar and a class act.”
