Re: phil jackson
You don't win as many rings as he has by simply being in the right place at the right time. Granted, part of his success is b/c of where he's been, but noone--besides Shaq, has won before/after Phil. He is not the type of coach to take a poor team and make them good. He takes great teams and makes them champions. People kinda shrug that off, but I think that's equally as impressive as taking a dormat and making them into something respectable. Through the implentation of the triangle offense and his motivational techniques, he gave the confidence and necessary skill to players who were almost--but not quite yet, at the pinnacle of excellence.......
