The players love it. Especially a team as devout as the Warriors (Curry, Thompson, Lee, Green, and O'Neal are all uber-Christian, as are probably a good chunk of the rest of the roster). He's a supreme motivator, and the players buy when he's selling, so I'll take it.

I was watching the local feed of the game, so I don't know what he said exactly. But it's probably the same thing I've seen/heard him do lots.

Here's my thing: who would we replace him for? Watch candidate out there is going to take this team to the next level? All the coaches available are retired or also-rans. Jeebs help us if we fire Jackson and hire D'Antoni.

That's the one way the Warriors get around losing Jackson without looking like assholes: he takes another job.
