Phil Jackson is I guess. His Los Angeles Lakers team, and his Chicago Bulls, have pushed Jackson into legendary status as well as record setting achievement. Phil Jackson has now coached over 1,300 games in the NBA. He’s also got the highest winning percentage of any coach with a comparable number of games.
Despite the disrespect of Boston Celtics legend Red Auerbach, you can’t argue with the numbers. The chances of Jackson surpassing old Red are very high. The stats tell the story in an unarguable fashion. Jackson is a heck of a coach.
All this comes to a head when the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics meet head to head on Christmas. The Lakers are currently well in front in the NBA Pacific Division, while Boston has a huge lead in the Atlantic Division. The game represents what could arguably be a head to head between the two best teams in the NBA. Merry Christmas.
