The Chicago Bulls had a big impact made on them by Phil Jackson. He did something that was pivotal in them getting over the hump.
Anybody can be a superstar in the regular season if they have the talent. That is what it looked like what happening with Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan in the 1980s. He was winning scoring titles and individual accolades but the success wasn’t really coming in the postseason. In order to mold himself into a guy who can get it done in the playoffs, he needed some help.
Of course, help came along the way down the road in the form of players like Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Steve Kerr, John Paxson, Horace Grant, etc, but it wasn’t until Phil Jackson showed up that Michael really clicked in the playoffs. Phil had philosophies that helped Jordan do what he needs to do in order to move along in the playoffs. Championships are how basketball players are remembered and the Jackson/Jordan duo combined to win six of them.
