Phil Jackson on Rodman
Who is the greatest athelete Phil Jackson's ever coached? Its not Jordan. Not Kobe. Not Shaq....
From Yahoo: Phil Jackson sure had plenty to say during a speech to the University of North Dakota as part of the convocation in which he received an honorary degree. Of the course of an hour, P-Jax criticized his school's nickname, told funny stories about Shaq swimming, and picked Dennis Rodman as the greatest athlete he ever coached. From the OC Register: "[Rodman] could probably play a 48-minute game and play the 48th minute stronger than the first minute of the game," Jackson told the crowd at UND. "He was that terrific an athlete."
....and that is why Rodman is my favorite basketball player. -Jim
