like I said, he teaches good fundamental basketball but is overall relatively uninnovative. when he has the talent he can probably beat u, and of course he's a nice person
So I guess Phil Jackson isnt that good of a coach because he had Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Shaq, Kobe and now Kobe again.
Great players make great coaches, but its also due to the coaching they receive.
