Phil Jackson says he wanted Kobe to play more like LeBron
 

 
It’s no secret that in his second stint with the Lakers, Phil Jackson pushed hard to keep Kobe Bryant playing within the triangle system. With mixed results, we might add.

Jackson will be featured an HBO Real Sports segment Tuesday night — the same one where he called the Knicks roster “clumsy” — and was asked in he would use LeBron differently than the Heat. Here is the transcription, via the Palm Beach Post.


“Oh, they’re– they’re using LeBron every possible way they can. He’s such a great player. I still think his game is gonna grow. I still think it’s gonna grow. But he was like Scottie Pippen was to the Bulls. He’s maybe a pass first and shoot second player. Whereas, you know, Michael or Kobe are like, “I’m gonna shoot this ball.” Every time they get the ball, they’re looking to score. LeBron’s not like that. And I love that about him. But he also, when he goes after scoring, he’s also terrific. You want a player that can do both. I tried to get Kobe to do both for numbers of years, and he could. But his first instinct is to beat the guy that’s in front of him.”

Mike Brown labored under illusion that he could change Kobe’s game. He just turned the mamba loose and stood back.

One criticism of the Heat was that LeBron and Dwyane Wade don’t play well together. Jackson doesn’t see it.


“ They’re doin’ great together. I mean, they really play off each other well. They are doing really well together.”

Jackson said he had not considered coach those two and the Heat, but added he thought he and Pat Riley and he could get along find. Sure, sure they can. It’d be a fun experiment to try out just for the laughs, but that’s moot. Not going to happen.

phil the GOAT saying what we already know

lebron plays the game the right way, getting teammates involved while still scoring at a high volume on excellent FG percentage

He said kobe and MJ are shooters first

Lebron will pass a shot up thats proven he chokes in the moment

OP is a f*ggot for misinterpreting the whole article

Phil even said Lebron is like Pippen was to the bulls

how can kobe play more like lebron if lebron plays like Pippen

so being compared to the greatest perimeter defender of all time and a 6-time champion and hall of famer is a bad thing now?

You're the one that tried to make it seem like Phil comparing Kobe to the GOAT was a bad thing
