Phil Jackson: I'd Take Bill Russell over Michael Jordan

If Phil Jackson could start a dream team, he would take legendary Boston Celtics and University of San Francisco center Bill Russell over Michael Jordan, whom he coached in Chicago. 

“In my estimation, the guy that has to be there would be Bill Russell. He has won 11 championships as a player,” Jackson told Time. “That’s really the idea of what excellence is, when you win championships.”

Russell won 11 championship rings with the Boston Celtics during their incredible run in the 1950s and 1960s, frustrating the Lakers and Wilt Chamberlain, while Jordan won six with the Chicago Bulls.
