(The Sports Xchange) - Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob apologized to Mark Jackson after criticizing his former coach's management skills last week.

In an interview last week, Lacob said Jackson was disliked by many in the organization and that contributed to his firing.

"Part of it was, he couldn't get along with anybody else in the organization," Lacob told InsideBayArea.com. "And, look, he did a great job -- and I'll always compliment him in many respects -- but you can't have 200 other people in the organization not like you."
