Marreese Speights sounds off on Mark Jackson firing

Golden State Warriors’ power forward Marreese Speights is probably best known for, at least recently, being an instigator in the post-game tussle after the Warriors’ Game 7 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. He was even referred to as a “punk” by Clippers’ head coach Doc Rivers’ son, Jeremiah Rivers.

On Tuesday, Speights’ Warriors fired head coach Mark Jackson. Speights was not happy about it and took to twitter to share those feelings.





Those are powerful words from Speights. Although he played in 79 games during the season and all seven playoff games, he played just 12.4 minutes per game and still feels that strongly about Jackson.

    If he played as hard as he tweets maybe the Warriors would still be in the Playoffs!
