Mark Jackson has shared his perspective on why a deal to turn out to be a colour commentator for the Knicks on MSG fell via.
Initially nearing an settlement to fill in for Walt “Clyde” Frazier on street video games, Jackson’s inclusion on the crew airplane was vetoed by Knicks president Leon Rose.
This resolution stems from an acrimonious incident in 2014 between Jackson, then head coach of the Warriors, and present Knicks assistant Darren Erman, who was fired for secretly recording Jackson and different gamers.
Jackson responded to The Post’s report in an Instagram video on Thursday night time.
“Come on, man. Come on. At some point, the lies have got to stop. The lies have got to stop,” Jackson mentioned.
“I’ve sat back year after year, listening to lies, questioning me as a man and my integrity. What I stand for, what I was raised on, has been questioned. I sat back and didn’t say anything.”
Jackson referenced Colorado head coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, quoting his comment that he “lost the address to the high road.”
“I’m not there yet, but I’m getting closer, because there’s a side of me that’s fed up, that’s upset that you keep smearing my name,” Jackson mentioned.
