I dont want to come off as being anti Phil Jackson. He is the man, but I still think Pops gets more out of his players top to bottom than any other coach in my lifetime. Si I cant really commment on Aurbach and thos old dudes. But part of me thinks that Celtics dynasty had to do witht he leadership and defensive abilty of one Bill Russell than any specifi skill that Aurbach possesed. But All great coaches have had great players as well.
I guess its like a catch 22
all are great coaches and all had help from two hall of famers or more on each roster but can't knock them still.
