View Full Version : What do you think of Phil Jackson's unique style of not calling timeouts?

Would you like your coach to do it?

In my case, I personally love it. When the game is on the line, I always see the Lakers composed, knowing what their roles are. Of course a big part of it is Kobe, but Pau, Fish and even Ron I believe are calm.

correct me if im wrong but i dont recall him doing this in the playoffs? seems like he only does it during the regular season cause he probably could give a **** less and wants to get back home as fast as possible to bang jeanie buss

I think He's Brilliant and he definitely knows what he's doing.

Of course he knows what hes doing... One of the best coaches of all time. His team is full of vets, he knows the players know what they should do; calling a TO isn't always necessary in that scenario.

i love this in the last seconds of games. if a team misses and there is less than 24 seconds just go is my attitude. because if you call a timeout your best player will have a hard time getting the ball. people seem to panic when no timeout is called, you get better shots.

Well, it teaches the players to get out of the **** hole that they got themselves into instead of the coach always looking out for them. Does it cost them a few games? Sure, but it works out in the long run.

you know now that i think about it, when some nba fans call Phil Jackson very lucky. There right, but not lucky as the coach, lucky as the PLAYER. And i don't mean an NBA player if you know what i mean. :cool:

It builds character. His teams know they have to dig themselves out of a tough situation. He usually only does this in the regular season. He is much quicker to call timeout in the playoffs.

Phil thinks big picture. If he can let his team learn a lesson or gain some mental toughness in the regular season even if it costs a game he is fine with that.

He knows how to coach champions. To him the regualr season is a marathon. He wants to teach and have his team peaking at the finish. He isn't worried about games early on.

It's awesome. Anyone who manages people should watch Phil Jackson and learn. He's a master.

1. Shows he has trust in his players and the fact he has coached them well.

2. Calling a timeout everytime someone messes up is negative reinforcement, too much of it is not good. I like how he sometimes lets his team score back or do something right so they can walk back to the bench without feeling like they're complete failures.

Mike D'Antoni did this all the time with the Suns. He wanted the team to fight out of opposing teams runs.
Sometimes it worked and a lot of the times it did not.

I think it can only work with a savvy group of veterans who have developed chemistry and really trust each others game out on the court.

He used to do this in Chicago all the time. It was kind of like "no, you figure it out."

You shouldn't need to call a timeout to tell a bunch of vets to give the ball to Kobe.

when you always have great players and the best teams, you dont need to do too much correcting. You implement your schemes on offense and defense and let them figure it out. Save time outs for end of game situations.

He trusts his team to get out of the situation, simple as that. He wants the team to fight through adversary.

Phil has said before that part of some practices is brainstorming. He teaches them how to break down a defense. So no need to call a timeout for something they already know.

Mike D does the same thing though it backfires at times but can be effective. By not calling a TO it doesnt give the other team a chance to set up on D or put in their best defensive players in
