The Los Angeles Lakers were finally put out of their misery today by the Dallas Mavericks, as Dallas absolutely destroyed them to complete the sweep.

Unfortunately for one of the greatest coaches in NBA history, Phil Jackson's team was embarrassed in his final game as head coach for the Lakers.

Jackson will retire with 11 NBA Championships and over 1,000 wins, while boasting a win percentage of just over 70 percent.

To be completely frank, Jackson is irreplaceable.  One could argue that he is the best coach of all-time, and has had without a doubt a Hall of Fame career.  However, the Lakers will spend this offseason looking for someone to replace Jackson.
