Phil JacksonAs a substantial added bonus to L.A.’s 92-83 victory over the Boston Celtics on Christmas Day, Lakers head coach Phil Jackson earned his 1,000th career win, becoming the fastest NBA coach to do so.

After the contest, Jackson simply said that he was happy to have the win come on Christmas, and went back to talking about the game.

Jackson has nine NBA Championship rings as a head coach, tying Celtics legend Red Auerbach for the most in league history.
