New Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson can learn from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh when it comes to preparing for a season in short order because of a lockout.
Jackson brought his staff to San Francisco's practice Wednesday and met with Harbaugh before the NFC West-leading Niners took the field gearing up for Sunday's game against St. Louis. Jackson plans to hit Raiders headquarters Thursday to observe another successful first-year Bay Area coach: Oakland's Hue Jackson.
In a charcoal gray Warriors pullover, Jackson expressed how eager he is to get started at last. He referenced the ''obstacles'' he has in common with Harbaugh and Jackson - without using the word lockout. The NBA has restrictions on how much team officials can say even with a tentative deal in place.
