07:02 AM ET 05.16 | Thanks to one of the great careers in NBA history, Phil Jackson has quite the collection of bling, and he's not afraid to tweet it. A Knicks fan tweeted at [Jackson] asking to see the championship rings he earned during his playing days in New York and the legendary coach was quick to respond by showing off his entire collection of NBA jewelry. Jackson won two titles with the Knicks in the '70s before moving onto becoming a coach and claiming six rings in Chicago and five in Los Angeles with the Lakers. Jackson may have had the photo readily available since he has a book hitting the shelves next week entitled: "Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success."

Bring him back to NY. Offer him big time money and he'll say yes.

He was offered the job once and he turned it down. We need to forget about that and approach him again.

Do you ever see Bill Russel tweet a picture of all his rings? (Granted, he probably doesn't even know what twitter is)

May 16, 2013  11:14 AM ET

I did find some pictures with Russell holding all his rings in his hand. So i guess it's just something that guys with lots of rings do.

Red Auerbach may have something to say on that matter.
