Jackson Notches 900th Win In Impressive Fashion

Fresh

Aw, Here It Goes!

In the LOS ANGELES TIMES, J.A. Adande writes “the game ball from win No. 900, which came Sunday courtesy of the Lakers' impressive, improbable, come-from-behind victory against the hottest team in the NBA, should be bronzed, encased and lighted like a museum showpiece because the Lakers' 23 victories this season represent as fine a coaching job as Phil Jackson has done. Things are going so well right now, with a 16-4 home record and a perfectly acceptable 7-7 record on the road, that his next task might be to temper the expectations of this young team and increasingly giddy fan base.“

He's arguably the best coach of all time in the NBA him or Red Auerbach. The things he has done as a coach is remarkable. Yes he had good players play for him, but you still need to control to players, and make them play together to win championships and that's what he has done. The thing he's doing with the Lakers this season is remarkable as well. I didn't expect that when the season started.

Red is the best coach, and he always will be but Jackson will always remain the best Laker coach and second in the NBA. His winning streak is awsome, he is a brilliant and a bright coach. I can't read the article because I am not signed up. After Jackson retires, there will never be a coach that can replace him. Jackson is the best coach Lakers can have.

Congrads to Jackson.

P.S It would have taken him less games to get there if he would have coached that one season..!

You can never say never Alex, but I have to agree with you. I doubt there will ever be another coahc like Phil Jackson, or coach at the same level he's coached for so many years. Plus your right Kobe, he's be closer to a 1000 wins right now if he hadn't sat out that time. The way he's coaching right now he'll definitly reach it.
