Phil Jackson Relives the Day Kobe Bryant Met Michael Jordan

NBA365 Productions@@BR_NBASenior Writer IIMay 24, 2013

Phil Jackson is considered to be one of the greatest coaches in NBA history. He created countless memories during his basketball career, but several events stick out above the rest—like the day he introduced Michael Jordan to Kobe Bryant

Three NBA legends with 24 total NBA championship rings to this date meeting together for the first time. 

Imagine that.

There sat a trio of basketball icons in one room, with zero distractions and more success between them than almost anyone to come through the Association. 

The meeting Jackson set up for Bryant was meant to teach him what it takes to be a winner. It was also arranged to let Bryant know that he, like Jordan, would hold a special place in basketball history if he continued to push himself toward greatness. 

Clearly, Jackson was just as great of a coach off the court as he was on it.

Let us know in the comments below what you think of the meeting that Jackson set up for Jordan and Bryant.
