Basketball can bring you into quite the lucrative career. That’s why we decided to calculate the Phil Jackson Net Worth. The former player and coach is now serving as the president of the New York Knicks and it’s proven to be rocky but lucrative.
Jackson started his career in the NBA by being drafted by the New York Knicks in the second round of the 1967 NBA draft. As a player he didn’t win any championships but he sure made up for that as a coach.
The player would turn coach for one of the greatest teams in NBA history. The Chicago Bulls most winning period was with Jackson. Together, he, Michael Jordan and a number of stars earned themselves a whopping six championships.
If that wasn’t enough. Jackson was also able to coach another incredible player in Kobe Bryant. He took the lakers to numerous NBA finals and managed to help them capture five championships.
If anyone in the NBA knows what it takes to win, it’s Jackson. He has one of the most winning records as a coach and has been raking in the money as well.
We traced his net worth back to his player years, his coaching years and then his time as the president for the New York Knicks. He makes a whopping $10 million a year as the Knicks president which is absolutely insane.
After adding the numbers up and calculating his expenses we estimate that the Phil Jackson net worth is approximately $65 million.
