VIDEO: Celebrate Phil Jackson’s 68th birthday with this short documentary on his career


Today is Phil Jackson‘s 68th birthday, so it’s a good time to look back at the kind of impact The Zen Master had on the game of basketball. Of course, we all know what he did with the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls, but there was much more to Phil than meets the eye.

The video below is a short documentary by NBA TV that looks at Jackson’s career as a player and coach. Legendary announcer Marv Albert narrates the interesting film.

Happy birthday, Phil!
