When He Coached: 1989-98
Winning Percentage: .738
His Main Man: Michael Jordan
Why Are They on Here
There should be no question over Phil Jackson being No. 1. Over nine years in Chicago, Jackson won six NBA Championships. Putting together two different three-peats centered around Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, Jackson saw nothing but success. Under Jackson, the Chicago Bulls went on to an NBA-record 72-10 season.
Even with Jordan's brief retirement, Jackson still found success with Pippen as his main man. Jackson saw his most success, though, with Jordan at his side, and when after things fell apart in Chicago following the sixth championship, Jackson, Jordan and Pippen all went their separate ways.
Where Did They Go
Jackson found his next job coaching Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers. Jackson has coached the Lakers to five NBA Championships with a .607 winning percentage over six seasons. He retired following the 2010-11 season.
