Default Phil Jackson - " Kobe or Michael....flip a coin"..."

Quote:
NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson is something of an authority on what it takes to win championships, but he typically hasn't weighed in on the more contentious basketball topics about which players are best or give their teams the best chance to win. In promoting his new book "Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success," Jackson has switched up his approach and made some stronger statements on these debates. For instance, he's directly compared Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant for the first time ever, adding to an argument that probably won't stop even after science allows us to pit their clones against each other in hand-to-hand combat.

Quote:
Jackson dodged when asked to select between Jordan and Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, whom he coached to five titles between 2000 and 2010.

“I would flip a coin,” he said. “Whichever one came up heads or tails, I’d take that person. They were that good.”


Quote:
Bill Russell “In my estimation, the guy that has to be there would be Bill Russell. He has won 11 championships as a player,” Jackson said in an interview with Time. “That’s really the idea of what excellence is, when you win championships

Gotta backtrack, Phil knows he ruffled Kobe's feathers. Everyone deep down knows he was telling it the way it was the first time.

Phil may get a management job with the Lakers. PC.

Kobe fans will run this quote into the ground though, its a nice quote.

Another PR line. We know who Phil would really take with a gun to his head and it ain't Russell.

Kobe stans are so relieved phil finally says something nice about kobe after destroying his stans' delusion. But I hate to break it to you stans, phil only backtracks because doesn't wanna break yall's and kobe's heart.

Bottom line is, he said jordan was the way better leader, way better defender, does everything to win whereas kobe only shoot shoot shoot, jordan also has a better feel for the game and etc etc

accept it, kobe ain't even in the same league as jordan, he ain't even in lebron's league

A real flip a coin scenario would be if you want Bird or MJ taking the last shot for your team.
To stay on topic, when you are comparing somebody to the greatest player of all time then there is by default going to have to be something negative said about the guy because he is not the greatest of all time, the original quote wasn't that harsh on Kobe actually 'not a born leader' and 'gambles defensively'.
Any other guard when comparing individual games comes out worse out of the comparison than Kobe, let's be honest here.
