Phil Jackson Surpasses Pat Riley

Jackson’s old nemesis is now in his rearview mirror: “Here’s some of what Phil Jackson said tonight after passing Pat Riley and becoming the Lakers all-time leader with 534 coaching victories: ‘It’s been a really good run. Having this opportunity, to coach this team, is always special. So the fact that we’ve had some great teams, great players, is always a credit to them (the players). My staff, the guys who help me prepare this team for games. All those things are ingredients going into this. It’s not really an individual record in my mind. It’s a team, a club significant thing.”‘

    pleeeeaaaaaase Phil, IF you retire after this season, please write another book about the last couple of years. I really enjoy reading his books.

    I still like Pat Riley, though. He never won a chip with the Knicks but he was a kick@ss coach who could adapt to pretty much any system.

    Riley, Popovich, Tomjonovich, Sloan, and probably a few others are better coaches than Fil – records be damned.
