Chat with Phil Jackson
Jackson is just one of six coaches with over 1,000 wins.
Welcome to SportsNation! On Tuesday, we'll be celebrating this week's launch of ESPNLosAngeles.com with style befitting the City of Angels when Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson stops by to chat.
Jackson, one of the most successful coaches in NBA history, joins the chat just hours before his Lakers tip off Tuesday night against Oklahoma City. He won his 10th league title last season, breaking his tie with Red Auerbach for the most ever by a coach. Entering Tuesday's game, he has 1,063 wins, placing him fifth all-time. Jackson has also won over 70 percent of the games he's coached, the highest percentage in NBA history.
Jackson began his NBA coaching career in 1989 when he took control of the Chicago Bulls. He led the Michael Jordan-led team to two separate three-peats in an eight-year span. He left the Bulls following the 1997-98 season and joined the Lakers for the 1999-2000 season. He did not coach the Lakers in 2004-05, but returned to the team for '05-'06 and has been in L.A. ever since.
Send your questions now and join Jackson Tuesday as soon as the Lakers' shoot around finishes between noon-12:30 p.m. PT!
