Phil Jackson with Sales Manager Allan Frank

Well today at work we had a visit from Phil Jackson, the current coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, and former coach of the Chicago Bulls. Jackson guided the Lakers to three titles in his first stint as their head coach from 1999-2004, and guided the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships in his nine years as head coach from 1989-1998.

His former player from the Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan wanted to purchase a brand new Harley-Davidson Road King motorcycle as a gift for Mr. Jackson for being inducted into the basketball hall of fame. Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time, and was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation, and was instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.

My first impression was that I couldn’t believe how tall he was. He made everyone seem small standing next to him. He impressed everyone with how friendly and down to earth he is. It was very exciting for us all to see him walk into the store, and was the highlight for everyone today.
