Now that Phil has his 10th NBA championship, some are calling him the best coach in the league and the greatest NBA coach of all time. Ive seen others praise Coach Brown who's won on all levels as the best NBA coach of all time. Who would you rather have as your guy?

Don't know how you could really make a case for Brown. Just the fact alone that you can't trust him to finish what he starts. Already blown through 9 organizations in his career.

Stats?

Brown .552 winning percentage regular season all time. .529 in the playoffs.

Jackson .705 winning percentage regular season. .697 in the playoffs.

1 NBA title vs 10.

Brown's a helluva coach, just flakey.

Jackson has more playoff series wins than 25 other franchises combined...to go with the 10 titles...has my vote without question.

You guys make good points. Phil Jackson has also had the fortune of coaching 2 franchises, both of which were playoff teams prior to his arrival and are loaded with a plethora of HOFers. Coach Brown has coached 9 franchises (an NBA record), and has transformed the culture in all of them excluding his NY stint. Here's a coach who will truly build a team from the ground up and take them into the dance. This guy took the Clippers to the playoffs!!! THE CLIPPERS!!! Can we get some head to head stats?

good point too KT...I still stick with Jackson...yes, he had the talent, but he also got the most out of that talent all the time! He kept the egos in check for the most part! His stats are amazing

If I coached MJ and Kobe, I would probably have about 10 championships also.

Then what has happened over the last 5 seasons, Phil?

If you're building a franchise from the ground up with no superstars in sight, who do you pick?
