phil jackson, gregg popp, and then byron scott and avery johnson IMO.
cant vote for sloan because he's never won. cant vote doc because he got lucky to have a team but against teams he didnt have matchups againt he looked shocked and changed nothing but he got lucky to win and then matched up well against the lakers. hating??? a little but true? yes also. mcmillian had the roster in place to have been makin the playoffs for the last 2 years but hasnt. larry brown has a bad track record except in philly. and i forget wo adelman is, so i def cant vote for him. lol, but if im thinking of the right guy, he isnt very good currently and shouldnt have had his position anyway

either Jackson or Popovich...Pops seems strict as a mofo though...and thats prob a good thing...you never hear about a Spur smoking marijuana or speeding or anythin lol...maybe because they make up the 35 and over Club

Even though they aren't listed I would pick Rick Carlisle or Lawrence Frank. I think they are vastly underrated as a coaches. From the list though I would pick Pop or Byron Scott.

Popps, best coach in the world. Phil is great at managing premadonnas, but not the best X and O guy out there.

Pop hands down. Nobody messes with Pop. Cause if you do... well, there's a reason why he has that nickname. After him, I'd say Sloan, even though he hasn't won a championship yet. He'd still woop any team into shape.

for an already good team: Phil Jackson, he doesnt lose if you give him the right players

for a team with average talent: rick adelman, his system can work with whoever he has in it, he coaches to players strengths as shown by this season from the rockets

Pop: wouldnt be bad either, another great overall coach

Jeff Van Gundy deserves to be on that list.

I'd take Zen Master first, JVG second, Greg P third & Doc Rivers 4th.

Pat Riley is not coaching in the NBA anymore. He may come back though.

As Red Auerbach once said... Phil Jackson picks his spots. Jackson's 9 titles has more to do with Michal Jordan/Scottie Pippen and Shaq/Kobe rather than his coaching. A good example of this is Doc Rivers. Would you consider him a good coach even though he has three future hall of famers on his team?

Team with veteran core - Phil Jackson
Team with inexperienced core - Byron Scott

even still...you have to be able to coach talent and bring the most out of the rest of teh roster. phil picks his spots incredibly well but he is also an excellent coach. you could have given doc rivers that group for 10 years and they wouldnt have 9 titles. they wouldnt even be able to get 3 str8 IMO. and they didnt even win because of him. they won because of teh assistant coach. he was the one that ran and designed their defense

it's not impressive when your money play is give the ball to (Jordan/Shaq/Kobe) and if you want to make the argument about maximizing talent look no further to the 04-05 season when he had GP and Malone along with Kobe and Shaq and they still couldn't get it done.

As far as Boston is concerned im glad you agree with me on Doc Rivers, but Tom Thibadeau should be happy that he had KG who made them commit to defense. You speak like he came up with some clever defenses when in truth it was simply the team executing basic defensive principles well. Doing things like limiting teams to one shot per ball posession, excellent help defense, defensive rotation, chasing shooters from the 3pt line, and getting physical with everyone consistently is what made them the best team in the league.
