Phil Jackson guided the Lakers to championships in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and back to the NBA Finals in 2003.
An old interview of Shaquille O’Neal praising Jackson recently made the rounds. In it, Shaq said:
If a coach takes a team to the Finals four out of five years, I’ll kiss his feet on Fear Factor with cheese on it. I will. It’ll never be done again.
Well, Erik Spoelstra coached the Heat to four straight NBA Finals (2011-2014). Steve Kerr just coached the Warriors five to five out of NBA Finals.
