Michael,

Many, including myself, had doubts about Phil Jackson's actual basketball acumen - often convinced that it was Michael Jordan who should've gotten the credit for those 6 titles in Chicago. Then Jackson went to L.A. where several coaches were thrown at Kobe Bryant and Shaq - to no avail. Both players continued to underachieve. 5 titles later (in L.A.), Jackson's "basketball acumen" and managerial skills are no longer in dispute. 11 total titles is pretty sick in this day and age.

Bottom line - he's the greatest NBA coach of all time.-And I'm not sure he's done just yet? Something tells me New York is on the phone right now.
