Jackson leaving on low note as Lakers swept away (9:42 a.m.)

Full story: Las Cruces Sun-News

The fun is over for Phil Jackson and his five kids. They've spent the last 20-plus years treating the NBA playoffs like a private party, according to their dad.

Phil Jackson could only win with teams loaded with superstars...look what happened when he coached Bulls without Jordan...most overrated coach of all time... to his credit he was smart enought to pick the right teams to coach...However, his teams always had poor sportsmanship and whined about everything. How fitting that he was fined for more whining at the end...and 2 of his stars acted like little poor loser babies and got ejected...real classy team..

That whole "only won with superstars" bit is a little weak. Every team to win a championship has had superstars, it's pretty much a requirement. That being said, 11 rings speak for themselves.

Actually, it's a very good argument. His 11 rings come from having the greatest player of all time (Jordan), and possibly the greatest player of his generation (Kobe). He couldn't win in Chicago without Jordan. In LA, he had to have Kobe and Shaq in his prime. The last couple were with Kobe and Gasol (who is very underrated). Anyone could've won championships with those teams.

The Pistons had no superstars in 2004. That's rare, admittedly, but it's not a requirement. It just makes it easier.

Jackson is extremely overrated. He may still be a good coach, but he's nowhere near the best.

Overrated whining sore loser who is as smug as he is lucky...the behavior of his players in his last game along with his fine for whining once again about the officiating sum up his career and his character perfectly. Of course, being tremendously overpaid and living with the boss's daugher doesn't hurt either.

What coach in the NBA has won multiple championships without superstars? Pretty stupid statement, but I guess when you dislike a guy you will say anything to make him look small.

wrong. you have no idea what you're talking about. how coach phil jackson was able coach, mentor & earn the respect of all-time legends with unbelievably massive egos (mj, shaq and kobe) is a 100% miracle. & 3peating not once, not twice but three times, plus a back2back in this modern bball era is astounding no matter who is on your roster.
in other words, respect the greatest or shut the fvck up.
