Re: Which coach would win this "chess match"? Red Auerbach VS Phil Jackson
Red's team may have the best individual talents, but it lacks outside shooting. In addition, scoring can be distributed more evenly in Phil's team - one team has five great to elite scorers as starters, while the other has three players that specialize in either defense or passing and the two greatest scorers of all-time (one of which is focusing more on defense in this incarnation), forcing Jordan to take on more responsibilities than LeBron and Kobe combined. Dirk also gives Phil's team an advantage on the bench. Finally, Phil has two players that already know the triangle.
