Mark Jackson responded to allegations from George Karl that Andre Iguodala was Jackson's "mole" during last season's playoff series between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets.
Karl said that there was "no question" Iguodala communicated with Jackson about alleged attempts to injure Stephen Curry.
"I heard him say I made bush league, high-schoolish (starting lineups)," Jackson said. "I just responded, and maybe we'll forget that I wasn't the first one, that when (Kenneth) Faried was hurt and we didn't know if he was playing or starting ... "
"It is what it is," Jackson said. "He's a great basketball coach, a great basketball mind, and I have nothing but respect for him. So I will take the high road, and hopefully it becomes contagious."

Andre Iguodala is making progress toward returning to the Golden State Warriors following a hamstring strain on Nov. 22.
Mark Jackson said Iguodala is getting "closer and closer" in his return timetable. Harrison Barnes has played well in Iguodala's place in the starting lineup.
"We'll stay true to the process as usual and look forward to having him back," Jackson said of Iguodala.
"We went and got him for a reason, and when we don't have him we're still a good basketball team, but we're not the same team."

George Karl believes Andre Iguodala was Mark Jackson's "mole" during last season's playoff series between the Denver Nuggets and Golden State Warriors.
"No question," said Karl when asked.
Jackson accused the Nuggets of playing dirty and intentionally attempting to cause an injury to Stephen Curry.
“I got inside information that some people don’t like that brand of basketball and they clearly didn’t co-sign it,” said Jackson to the media at the time.
"I thought Mark had a lot of tricks in that series that were bush- ..." said Karl. "I don’t know. I don’t know what they were. Almost high-schoolish. They were beneath the NBA level. And they might have worked. They might have motivated his young team in a good way. You know, he’d announce a starting lineup and start another guy. C’mon, man. You think we’re not ready for that?"
