June 15, 2010 - Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES - epa02204288 Los Angeles Lakers' head coach Phil Jackson reacts after a play against the Boston Celtics during the second half of game six of the NBA Finals at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, USA, 15 June 2010. The Lakers defeated the Celtics 89-67.

Today, September 17th, is a significant day in many ways.  On this day 223 years ago, the United State Constitution was signed by 39 brave men.  On this day 65 years ago, Philip Douglas “Phil” Jackson was born in Montana.  Young Philip quickly turned his basketball smarts into a head coaching job, after winning two titles as a player,  and is considered one of the best coaches in NBA history.  He has set many records along the way, while winning a total of 11 championships as a coach.  So I want like to congratulate Phil Jackson on his 65th birthday and I hope there will be many more ones in the future, both birthdays and championship rings.
