Phil has more seasons with titles than without. He only twice has failed to make it out of the first round, and those were some crappy teams. Highest win percent regular season and playoff. Sorry I don't care who you have, you're a great coach.

New York continues to believe that $$$ is the answer.

P_Jack has nothing to gain (he doesnt need their $50 mil) and everything to lose (his health).

Wont happen.

they also added two hall of famers, adding to their three year run, which even in the fourth year, they lost to an excellently coached pistons team with no hall of famers. I'm sorry, I just don't see Jackson as that great of a coach, considering the players he's had to work with.

You're looking at this too narrowily. The Lakers (when they won) were never built with the best of the best of the best. Teams stacked themselves (see: Trail Blazers, Portland) to try and beat them.

Jackson is a great coach because he gets guys on the same page and that's a key thing you're neglecting in your argument. Look how difficult Spoelstra has had it? They win, but you can tell, that team is fragile at points. I guarantee you, if you put Jackson there, he gets that team a championship. Guys respect him.

Re: that loss. That wasn't so much as the Pistons being excellently coached to win as it was that the Lakers imploded on the court and off the court. Payton/Malone were finished as well.

For those of you saying that Phil only won because he had the best talent on his team are incorrect. Phil is the guy who helped develop talents like Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan. He's the guy who helped put their ego's away so that they could get to the main prize.

Phil Jackson says he wouldn't have wanted to coach the New York Knicks -- even if the team asked.

"I wasn't gonna take that job; that's for sure," Jackson -- who won 11 championships as coach of the Bulls and Lakers -- told HBO's "Real Sports" in an interview scheduled to air Tuesday night.

He said Knicks owner James Dolan never called him about the job.

Jackson, 66, was a member of two Knicks championship teams and said he has thought about coaching in New York, but wouldn't want to lead the current team because it's "clumsy."

"They don't fit together well. (Amare) Stoudemire doesn't fit well with Carmelo (Anthony)," said Jackson, when asked to expand on "clumsy." "Stoudemire's a really good player. But he's gotta play in a certain system and a way.

"Carmelo has to be a better passer. And the ball can't stop every time it hits his hands. They need to have someone come in that can kinda blend that group together."

I think Jackson is a great coach . but .

Dude has been in high probability of success situations. First he has Mike. And then after Mike he has his pick of the litter of watching coaching job he wants to take. Of course he takes the one which had a very high chance of success.

The quote in this article alone gives Pzabby some credibility. Even Melo & Amare aren't good enough for Jackson. He probably has two jobs he would take - Miami, and OKC.

I think he's a great coach, but made sure to not put himself in anything but the best position, so the number of titles don't necessarily place him above a handful of others.

Am I the only one who thought that PJax became more arrogant with each championship.

I found him unlikeable by the time he retired.

Didn't he retire because of health reasons? I doubt he will come back to coach any team, his legacy will be better that way too

If Jackson even gets this team to the Finals he will cement him self in NBA history as the greatest coach of all time IMO
