Congrats, Phil! Glad to know his ranked higher than Detroit’s badboy, Isiah Thomas.

NBA.com -

4. Phil Jackson -

The winningest coach this decade is on his second stint with the Lakers, which may end up being as satisfying as his first. He put Shaq and Kobe on the same page and won three championships, and when they were no longer compatible, Jackson won another with just Kobe. Jackson also passed Red Auerbach on the all-time bling list and perhaps, in the minds of many, settled all arguments regarding “best coach ever.”

Nothing else to be said, everything has been said…

1. Kobe Bryant -

Not quite Magic, not quite Bird and not quite Jordan, but for overall impact on the game, Kobe rules the decade. He began it as a teen idol who made basketball cool. His image took a hit after legal problems in Colorado. And then, in large part because his basketball skills are so supreme, he recovered it all: endorsements, box office and another title, his fourth this decade.

    Weird, on that link above they have changed the list so that Phil is now #5 behind LeBron at #4.

  • http://LakersNation Marwan

    That is the biggest load of bull…

    Come on, Lebron at 4? What has he achieved? Phil Jackson achieved 4 championships this decade (hopefully will be 5 at the end of this season) and what has Lebron achieved?

    He got an MVP, but so did Kobe, and also he walked out on Orlando, Im sure that has to set him back. Other than that, Lebron is empty handed.

    Seriously Phil is GOAT coach and putting Lebron ahead of him is the biggest insult to both Phil and the Laker Fans.

  • Bhoo

    Simply calling raping, sodimizing and paying off a girl “legal problems” is more than disingenuous.

      allegations . . .

    • BeerJuice

      Allegations that were tossed out by a Judge in court. The accuser was out for money and justice came through in the end when it was discovered that she was a liar. Text messages minutes after she left Kobe’s room to her friend said that she was going to “Buy a hotel” maybe before you run your mouth on a Lakers site you should get some facts, ignorance is not an excuse for stupidity. Kobe is the GOAT and he has done a lot for this city and to redeem himself in the eyes of the world, Adultery is not rape.

  • Short Dog

    That was a long time ago. Kobe did not rape that girl anyways. Be real.

  • FERN DOG

    Kobe didnt rape know one.The bitch just wanted some of kobes money.Kobe1 whats up shortdog.

  • gofeedtina

    wtf is Lebron even on the list for? He hasn’t done SH i t. Iverson and Nash should be ahead of him, and Wade should be on the list too.

    But at-least they got Kobe at number one, and gave respect to the greatest coach of all time..
