- BroadcastingJackson worked along side Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen on ABC.Kerr worked along side Marv Albert on TNT and has provided his voice for the in-game commentary of EA Sports video games.

Steve Kerr ultimately wins this one. He had the better NBA Career, he's been more fun to watch as an analyst and has the better broadcasting career overall. Kerr doesn't win in the coaching category for one reason and one reason only....this will be his first coaching job in the NBA. No one can sit here and say he is going to do better than Jackson until he does better than Jackson.
