The NBA world is shocked on Tuesday, but in a way they aren’t. Tuesday afternoon, as has been rumored for the past few days, the Golden State Warriors fired head coach Mark Jackson after three seasons and two straight trips to the playoffs. Needless to say, the initial reaction around the internet is not positive toward the Warriors organization.
Still, we have yet to hear a reaction from the players on the team, as the firing is still very new, but we did get a reaction from Draymond Green’s mother, who seemed a bit taken aback by the news and presumably not happy.

You know what they say, if mama ain’t happy..
In her defense, you could see where she would be upset a bit. In two seasons in the league under Jackson, Green improved a bit. He went from averaging 2.9 points per game last season to 6.2 this season. His rebound numbers also took a rise, going from 3.3 per game to an even five.
