Starting Christmas Day, Mark Jackson will get a regular national gig, joining Mike Breen as the lead analyst on ABC's coverage of the NBA. He'll also join the network's pregame show with Dan Patrick and Michael Wilbon. Jackson's meteoric rise from Nets analyst couldn't have happened, he admits, without the help he got from Marv Albert, Ian Eagle and Tim Capstraw. Jackson will continue to call Nets games. He also has some interesting perspectives on the Knicks-Nugget brawl.
