Phil Jackson

I really enjoyed Bill Simmons' article on the recently-retired Phil Jackson. Jackson is the best (or second best depending on where you rank Red Auerbach) coach in NBA history, yet his coaching ability is often discounted because he coached Jordan, Shaq, and Kobe. Simmons gives a thorough explanation of why Jackson's greatness can't be measured simply by the talented players he was privileged to coach.
