Former NBA coach Phil Jackson left a legacy throughout the league. He won 11 NBA championships as a head coach and is widely considered the greatest coach in history.He was fortunate enough to work with some of the greatest players in basketball history, but he managed to find a way to pull the right strings. The former Lakers coach helped Los Angeles win five titles during his tenure with the team. Jackson was able to push Bryant in ways others might not have thanks to his work with legend Michael Jordan. Bryant and Jordan were similar players in terms of mentality towards the game, so Jackson knew how to get the most out of them. Bryant had some stubbornness in the way he approached basketball, but that allowed him to succeed. He was only guided by those he thought were at his level in basketball, and Jackson was one of those people. The two cared about each other and became champions along the way. This can never be taken away, and their legacy within the Lakers communities will never be forgotten with time.
