Does anyone remember who Shaq's coach was when the Magic beat the Bulls and went to the NBA Finals?

I don't know the answer. lol

That is why I am asking. i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

I was just curious. I wonder if that coach knew any secrets when going against Phil Jackson(other than to have Shaq on your team).

EDIT:

I think youa re right...

Was he a good coach or did he just get lucky?

Jordan only played about 30 games that year (it was his comeback year). He looked pretty bad against Orlando. The enduring image from that series was his getting ripped at mid-court by Nick Anderson. Hill was an ok coach I guess. Basically he was coaching a expansion team that got lucky in the lottery a couple of years and picked 2 great young players.
