Philip Douglas "Phil" Jackson (born September 17, 1945) is a former American professional basketball player and the current coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Jackson is widely considered one of the greatest coaches in the history of the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1][2] His reputation was established as head coach of the Chicago Bulls from 1989 through 1998; during his tenure, Chicago won six NBA titles. His next team, the Los Angeles Lakers, won five NBA titles from 2000 to 2010. In total, Jackson has won 11 NBA titles as a coach, surpassing a record set by Red Auerbach. He is the winner of the most championships in NBA history as a player and a head coach, breaking the tie between him and Bill Russell after the Los Angeles Lakers won the 2009 NBA Finals over the Orlando Magic four games to one.
