Outside of Red Auerbach, there might not be a better head coach than Phil Jackson and during time in the league, Phil coached some legendary players.
Jackson (who is currently the Knicks president) is best known for time spent with the Chicago Bulls where he coached the legendary duo of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.
While some might debate the legendary status of Scottie Pippen, it appears that Phil believes that Scottie is one of the greatest players of all-time as noted in this tweet by ESPN’s Ian Begley:
