Who is the better coach? Who would you rather have coaching your team?

I'd be perfectly fine with either tbh. I consider them 1A and 1B. Phil always had much more talented players, but IMO Pop always did a better job getting the most out of every player. He's been turning NBA rejects into good role players for as long as i can remember.

Both are GOATS, but Pop can turn a d-leaguer into a beast
so Pop > PJ

Jackson is better. People forget that Popovich has always had good teams too. Jackson's success with good talent >>>>>>>>>>>> Popovich's.

Jackson has 11 rings
Pop has 4 rings

Jackson's teams have 3-peated 3 times
Pop's have NEVER even made the Finals 2 years in a row.

For all the 50 win talk, Pop's teams fall short all the time in the playoffs.

I think if you want the better overall coach/gm you take pop. If you want to take 1 superstar/diva to a championship you take Phil.

Coach Pop is a better execution and X's and O's coach. Phil Jackson is the master at containing egos and bringing a group together to achieve one common goal. He's the best at getting everyone on the same page.

Can't go wrong with either head coach.

I'll take Pop.


either one is is terrific.


Jackson was put in better circumstances IMO.


they're 1 and 2 all time so it's splitting hairs. It's like saying would you rather drive a Ferrari or a Lambo... sure you might have a preference but can you really complain either way?

How is choosing a guy that is without a doubt top 2 coaches of all time at all hipster. Saying Tom Thibodeau is better than both might get you into ultimate hipster territory.

But Pop had Duncan, Manu, Parker all at the same time. The Spurs have lost endless times to teams they shouldn't have in the playoffs. Hell, just look at last year's Finals that they should have won and blew.

You win Pop is an inferior coach. He coaches down players that should be all-stars. Pop forces people like Tim Duncan and Tony Parker to play less than 30 minutes a game. It is pretty obvious that Pop wanted Ray to hit that 3. Pop knows that MJ is the greatest player to ever play and would do nothing to tarnish that reputation.

Spurs lost by luck last year

Lakers 2004 finals was far worse

Jackson is better. 11> 4. People forget MJ could never do anything till PJ got there. Same thing with Kobe and Shaq.

This. ****ing ridiculous statement.

I personally believe PJ is, but pop is right next to him.
