Happy Birthday, Coach

Phil JacksonHall of Fame coach Phil Jackson turned 64 today, on September 17 of the year he won his 10th championship to become the NBA’s greatest coach of all time.

While the 10 championships represent Jackson’s trump card, his career record (1,041-435, 70.5 percent) and playoff record (209-91, 69.7 percent) aren’t too bad either.

To the Lakers he’s delivered four championships (2000-2002 and 2009) in nine seasons as head coach, while the Chicago Bulls were privy to six titles in as many seasons.

All in all, Jackson has won titles at the ages of 45, 46, 47, 50, 51, 52, 54, 55, 56 and 63.

How about 64?
