I can't believe Phil Jackson being a great coach is even in debate. You may not like him but this guy has done things only Red Auerbach has surpassed. I guess you can say Red was crap if he didn't have the greatest centre of all time at his disposal.
You may not lke him but he did it and you need great players to do it. Great players make Great Coaches and if Phil isn't a great coach I guess I'm watching a different game. Have a little respect for history.
Saying all that I hope he doesn't take the Knicks job I think he is too old to coach again. He should be a GM or advisor or something.
