Which former NBA player based STRICTLY his playing career (who has never been a head coach) do you guys think can be the next great head coach. I'd have to go with Magic Johnson. The Greatest PG to ever do it he just to ever. He would know just what to do to be successful with what he has (unless its the Nets lol i couldnt resist).

How do you guys think???

Magic Johnson already coached the Lakers and he was terrible.

some of the guys some of you named are already coaches, like patrick ewing, he isnt a head coach but he is pretty close, if its in the "close" category, im going to go with jazz assistant tyrone corbin, very level headed


but the first name that comes to mind is john stockton, possibly jeff hornacek, both fundamental coaches that i think would be great leaders, because they were on the court too
