But some think he did get robbed of one final championship season. Getting swept by the Dallas Mavericks is probably not the way Jackson wanted to go out.<br> <br> <em>Eight Forty-Eight</em> decided to take a page from Phil and get zen – by reflecting on the different styles of coaching in Chicago and around the NBA. After all, it is thanks to Coach Tom Thibodeau that the Bulls are going strong.<br> <br> <a href="http://lakernoise.com/" target="_blank">Roland Lazenby</a> knows all about coaching, zen style or otherwise. He profiled Jackson in his book <em>Mindgames: Phil Jackson’s Long Strange Journey</em>.
