Over the years, I have been one of Phil's harshest critics. I mean he was handed the Bull's all star team and then was handed the Laker's (Shaq and Kobe) a few years later. I mean who couldn't win with that, right? Well, I must confess that I think Phil Jackson has proven to be a very good coach this year. He is doing a great job with the Laker's in my opinion. I think it would be extremely difficult to get any more out of that team then Phil has this year. Phil Jackson, my apologies for criticizing your coaching abilities. My criticism was proven to be inaccurate.
