Leave a comment

Phil Jackson-1996For quite some time, there was an ongoing debate about whether Kobe Bryant deserves to be in the same conversation as Michael Jordan in terms of overall play and greatness. It’s still discussed by some to this day.

One person that would really have a concrete idea of the matter is Phil Jackson, who coached both players and saw the best and worst of the two in their respective prime. He, however, never wanted to get into great detail when comparing the players.

Here’s something you may not have expected to hear after the first 17 games of the NBA season: the Lakers are 8-9, two games back from the Golden State Warriors in the standings.

What does it mean for the Lakers, who many expected would dominate and even challenge the Bulls best regular season record of all time?

- Steve Nash remains out due to a broken leg.
