But it candidate. Now I have nothing but love and appreciation. And in and I'm I'm grateful for it. David evidence so I'm grateful for the opportunity and removal. Are willing and about -- we will present itself does not totally at peace in a husband followed a past and and well. Not living here full time how big of an issue was that with the owner in the front office. Well I will say that -- When they hired me in I was in the wasn't -- job description to what the demand and Julie groups or even actually had to go back. He probably would say that great debt which in Qatar we can't go back years ago in May -- -- job of that on the description. But Doc Rivers coached and bolt from the remote Randall.

And if you want me to -- Obama ultimately. In in in -- Altria. -- -- -- A clay Klay Thompson became. One of the best if not to in and knowing in your estimation the best. Wing players in the league is Seth Curry becomes an all star. David Lee became an all star the -- had a lot of accomplishments that they hadn't had. In decades when you look at all of the things that that transpired over the last three years. What are you proud of stuff. On proud of the -- of these guns and -- I'm I'm I'm probably technically Thompson went from Newton and number eleven. Who arguably and in my opinion the best shooting in the world or -- soccer and basketball. And the future is incredibly bright and it is a -- bull low amount of money. I'm proud of the fact that -- -- green. Instructed construct ground and had also it's a question marks had an impact Connecticut on the content players in the world com. In in seven games series. And and making a statement I'll probably look at. You know Paris and bonds in the -- he conducted himself. In spite of not starting coming off of last year. -- from the fact that when you look at God's warriors Jersey. You don't look at the same way that you did three years and years ago how they conducted themselves and then as examples as winners. Our home page statement. Made a statement about. Each and every one I think it in the debate that's what. That's winning and an aunt and uncle are exemplary. Small. Obviously -- -- is management it's it's it's it's it's just to play it. And it's it's it's some would be problem. Cilic of said -- he feels as everybody could have learned or should have learned something from this experience that they can do better. What do you walk away having learned from this experience. Well and he. Obviously. You continue to learn as a coach. Thank -- to get better. As important. That you select the right people wanting that are talked about making mistakes. In my sister -- situation are probably it would address definite -- well. Six weeks are much early. In the -- what was becoming an issue. Permanently there. Even know would handle it could have been checked a little bit -- That that that's not -- warmup. -- -- unfortunately the second issue well documented now. Disappointing. But when you. Create an environment that. You know. Seeks something like Iraq creates something like that unfortunate but it and doable again. I would continue to get better coach continue to get better coach and I can't. As far what has been document. Relations original because like -- can't figure out. You change your own. I have no problem and I'd like -- to identify. Who it is I have a problem. In friction. Kamal sound well more policy actually regional countries Japan and again -- -- and my whole mind. And I believe -- -- probable to speak to end my -- bought -- and anybody else could talk. Go to my ball and ultimately go dancing around. Attempting on the market have relationships. It wouldn't be traffic that's where it was great and unfortunately you do that create an environment where -- assistant coach and one in. -- Mark Jackson former head coach of the bill say orders this year B TH on 9570 game if you look it's a lot these different stories out there today marks -- dealers say he's not an x.s and o.s guy. When you -- that how do you respond to that when they question your axes and those on the floor with a game. You respond about 23 games and national struggle for change. An analyst and went to Q1. You respond to it by taking the number three -- would have contemplated in the world. Sixth man of the year award nominated senator kind of future hall of fame coach. To the point games seven one with two minutes changed global. Consumption. And then do and I tried as best case. Everyone an old guy should be -- If that's the case. Some moving forward I look at the options that you have ESPN for all I know they've already contacted you and you're gonna be working. And working the playoffs. In the used analysts did well what you could do as a head coach. The the options seem to be. Many for you moving forward. What it what's the next step for for Mark Jackson. I'm most current problem firmly and this thing will play itself so the good news is that unfortunately that's not to have options. And and we'll see what the next move is now certainly. Enjoyed coaching. And look for opportunities. What I'm finding that piece. It was -- years ago that never happens again. It -- gradual book. But again I'm grateful forest. Opportunity. And I truly do not. Take a -- shall I say thank you to the incredible fans. Organizations these players as management group. What we've done well yeah and I wish him nothing but the best. When you look at the situation you're talking about unnamed sources I and I totally agree with you and there's a lot of question about your relationship would Jolie -- currently -- what was your relationship like with -- the sun. So are no problem current you know current government. Lauren. -- He's -- says it will assistant GM. And I had no problem occurred so. But here's my question if that's true. In nature available on the current talk about it because as far -- -- There was no issues that -- -- called awful last night. In the midst of enabled phone calls like couldn't get back but in the -- message. And win against. What has been has been reported talk about the -- has not been true. So commuted it's it's made of stop and I'm not sure there. Continue to chop down one by one you pretty much all of it has been not -- pretty much at all. Well mark I don't know who I'm speaking for others and myself but. As the sideline reporter for the for the team for the last two years. You and I have a -- knew each other previously worked and it at ESPN -- and Mike covering the league but. It was it was a joy to to be around and watch you change the culture this team. And I appreciate all the opportunity gave you gave me just to. To watch this team develop and grow. And the insight provided is so as you went went went about coaching Newton and developing these guys and I thought I'd sure I speak for for everybody here at 95 point seven in that we wish the best they're going forward and we know that you have continued success. -- say thank you very much. Obviously talked about -- we are in another month level of appreciation and respect for the job you do. And I appreciate you tracking it. In a way which would make old school reporters. And the great ones propped on the bottom and is is on couples sometimes on the true. And you attempted to do that whether it was. Against uniformly. And that's to be commended -- -- to the fantastic thank you so much it's been a great great rock and nothing but the best award is an organization. Well mark we will love hopefully we'll see you soon somewhere. From what you -- thanks coach.
