Mark Jackson Takes ‘The High Road’ Responding to George Karl’s Criticisms

Former Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl recently put Mark Jackson on blast, accusing him of using Andre Iguodala as a “mole” and other charges. Jackson decided not to add fuel to the fire in remarks to the press. Per the Contra Costa Times: “I heard him say I made bush league, high-schoolish (starting lineups),’ Jackson said. ‘I just responded, and maybe we’ll forget that I wasn’t the first one, that when (Kenneth) Faried was hurt and we didn’t know if he was playing or starting.’ … ‘It is what it is,’ Jackson said. ‘He’s a great basketball coach, a great basketball mind, and I have nothing but respect for him. So I will take the high road, and hopefully it becomes contagious.'”
