Lakers' Jackson reportedly headed to Hall of Fame

Phil Jackson's resume includes nine NBA titles and more than 900 victories. Soon, he'll be able to add Hall of Famer to that list.


The Lakers' head coach, who's probably most famous for guiding Michael Jordan and the Bulls to two separate three-peats, will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame this September, the Los Angeles Times reported.


While Jackson hasn't been a head coach for the necessary 25 years, his time as an assistant with the Bulls and the Nets counts toward his overall service, the newspaper reported.


Jackson will be the Lakers' 18th inductee into the Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.


The Hall of Fame's 2007 class will be announced Monday, April 2.

Jackson's overall NBA record is 915-387 (.703). After leading the Bulls to six titles in nine years between 1989-1998, he directed the Lakers to three championships from 1999-2004.
