2009: Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson breaks Red Auerbach's record by winning his 10th NBA title. Jackson had twice coached the Chicago Bulls to three straight NBA titles in 1991-93 and 1996-98 and won three more in a row with the Lakers from 2000-02. He would coach the Lakers to another title in 2010, raising his career total to 11th NBA titles as a coach to go along with two he earned as a player for the New York Knicks in the early 1970s.
