Phil Jackson has been so successful as a coach that many forget about his 13-year playing career. He spent 11 of those seasons with the New York Knicks and was a key role player on the club's 1973 championship winner. A second-round pick in 1967, Jackson averaged 6.7 points and 4.3 rebounds for his career and was regarded for his stout defense and all-out style (he once led the league in personal fouls).
