h/t Ronaldinho for initially posting this with the following comment:
As much as I disagree with a lot of what I understand to be Mark Jackson’s theology, you can’t accuse him of not really living what he says about that stuff.
I suspect the intensity of his integrity in that area was part of why many players trusted him. When somebody is living their own truth that intensely, it’s hard not to respect them for it. There’s a passion on display here that we never saw from him as a coach, and I wonder if the players saw more of it.
