Mark Jackson Defeats Steph Curry In Shootout

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — NBA practices frequently devolve into shooting contests — from halfcourt, from full court, between teammates, whatever. And when your team’s coach is a former NBA point guard, it just gives the players one more competitor to go up against in any shooting contest. That’s what happened yesterday in Indianapolis, where the Golden State Warriors had practice on an off day, and where Steph Curry and coach Mark Jackson got into a post-practice shootout.

Even though Curry is arguably the best shooters in the game today, Coach Jackson gave him all he could handle. Hand down, man down.

      Hey Mark how about tried to make a shootout with our king “LeBron” so you know what you’re dealing with if you loose we will trade pure shooter Rashard Lewis and Udonis Haslem shooter from the mid range for Stephen Curry.

      PG: Curry
      SG: Allen
      SF: Wade
      PF: James
      C: Bosh

      6th man: Battier
      Strong Reserve: Oden,Chalmers,Cole,Beasley and Birdman Birdman!!

      3 peat for the Heat!

    I think you meant, “Even though Curry is arguably ONE OF the best shooter in the game today…”

  3. zeebear says:

    Waiting for lbj to write out his go to lines
    You will not win a ring being the coach of the warriors, marc jackson must join the king as the 6th man

    Lists roster positions…

    lol.

  4. freal says:

    Mark Jackson just had a good day + Steph Curry is more of an in-game shooter like reggie miller and ray allen, that’s why he doesn’t win 3 point contests either

    • Javier says:

      Yeah, you kinda have to get in a groove when you’re shooting to make em like curry does in games. He can’t really get that groove in practice.

  5. Matinho says:

    Mark Jackson could easily start for the Bucks. just standing at the 3-point line and let it fly. they don’t get any stops , so it wouldn’t change anything playing defense with 4 players…

  6. BLAKEMVP says:

    It seems steph runs on adrenaline thats why he can’t win 3-point contests. I know cause i play the same way.

  7. BLAKEMVP says:

    Its hard to get adrenaline from shooting

  8. wtf says:

    lmao mark jackson shoots like every other fat guy at the gym. he was hittin it tho.

  9. Rafael says:

    They did not shoot from the same spot the first two spots

  10. euro says:

    mark jackson what an ugly shot
    in game blocked every time
    but he’s nba coach

    • edge says:

      maybe you haven’t watched Mark Jackson played during his NBA playing career to mention especially during his stint with the Pacers back then in the mid 90′s… he is one of the pure PG who can play the post really well..and had a decent percentage beyond the arc…

  11. ism says:

    I wonder how long it will take for Steph to attain the nick name LUCKY LUKE – isn’t he the only the guy who can pull up and nail 3s faster than his own shadow?

    Other than that, fun video, nothing more.

  12. Brogzter says:

    As long as Ray Allen is in the game, no such honors should be rashly distributed.

  13. eckounltd says:

    steph curry is best shooting the ball right from dribble. and coach MJ is more of a spot up shooter

  14. Ikey says:

    Amazing coach!

  15. dustydreamnz says:

    Jackson was a great 3 pt shooter in his day, he’s got a strange technique.

    • Oh snap son...Mama there goes that man says:

      uugghhhh i watched his entire era…..no he wasnt…….

  16. Michael says:

    Mark Jackson hit 9 in a row. Respect! How many of you young fellas have ever nailed that many on the trot?

  17. kidoboy says:

    easy for fat person to shoot on a spot , if they shoot while running, curry wll win anyone for sure lights out

  18. kidoboy says:

  19. Billy says:
