Phil Jackson

Series: Championship Coaches

By John Fredric Evans

How did a boy who grew up in remote areas of Montana and North Dakota go on to become the National Basketball Association's all-time winningest coach? Phil Jackson's life story that took him from small town U.S.A. to the pinnacle of NBA coaching success is anything but conventional. Known as the Zen Master for imbuing his coaching style with the tenets of Eastern philosophy, Jackson's always employed a unique approach to basketball both on and off the court. Popularizing a system of play called the triangle offense, Jackson won multiple championships including an unprecedented three "three-peats" while coaching Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls and Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers, resulting in 11 championships over 20 seasons. That's more than any coach in any of North America's major professional sports. This biography explores Jackson's one-of-a-kind keys to Hall of Fame success that enabled him achieve uncommon triumph in an unparalleled two-decade coaching career.
