Coaching is a key element to every elite teams and I want you to make a top 10 of current Nba coaches.Even if personally I didn't make one because I'm more interested in your opinions than mine,I'd put Popovich at 1#...let's the discussion begin!

1. Pop
2. Thibs
3. Doc
4. Carlisle
5. Adelman
6. Vogel
7. Spoelstra
8. Jackson
9. Woodson
10. Brown


No other coach in the NBA is really worth noting. The rest of coaches are the equivalent of NBA scrubs pretty much.

Pop is number one and its not even close. I would move up Frank Vogel though the way he has Indy playing defense is remarkable.

Pop's for sure than probably Thibs. My one issue with Thibs is his propensity to over play his starters and wearing them down. That #1 seed is so important to him that he coaches with reckless abandon to get it. Maybe if he coached his whole team with bench included the starters would have more rest and be able to beat Miami.

5. Spoelstra
6. Vogel
7.Jackson
8.Brooks
9.Brown
10.Woodson

Im going to assume guys like Jason Kidd, Brad Stevens, and Brian Shaw will all have a chance to be on this list pretty quick.

Spolestra probably should get some more consideration, but lets face it, 90% of NCAA coaches could coach the Heat to a title right now. 90% of NCAA coaches could not do what Thibs and POPS do.

Brooks is dropping down the list rapidly for me. When he had a LOADED *** team in 2012 I think it was... he looked real good but the guy still continues to start Perkins ahead of a better player in Collison and has some of the worst in game adjustments in basketball. He's now what the 5th highest paid coach? Yet he's about the 20th best probably.

I don't buy it. Spo is a true coach... I've watched him consistently making the right adjustments in game, calling great timeouts, playing chess with other coaches. Sure any coach could win with that team but not any coach could be as consistently great in the playoffs with that team. It takes a big time coach to reign in all that talent/ego.

Spoelstra is a great coach, I just don't see him outcoaching 1-6 given equal talent and oppruntunity .. with the exception of maybe Frank Vogel. His team without a doubt makes him look a lot better than he really is. 8-10 is a toss up

10. Monty Williams I suppose. Options are kind of limited here. McHale could work his way onto the list depending on how this season goes.

The notion that Thibs plays his players too much is ****ing ridiculous and incorrect. The leading players in minutes played over the past 20 seasons... minutes played + minutes per game
2013 - 3,167 38.7 (Lillard, Deng)
2012 - 2,546 39.4 (Durant, Deng) * lockout
2011 - 3,227 40.3 (Ellis x2)
2010 - 3,239 41.4 (Durant, Ellis)
2009 - 3,269 39.9 (Iguodala x2)
2008 - 3,424 41.8 (Iverson x2)
2007 - 3,190 42.5 (Lebron, Iverson)
2006 - 3,384 43.1 (Arenas, Iverson)
2005 - 3,388 42.4 (Lebron, Lebron)
2004 - 3,331 42.5 (Joe Johnson, Iverson)
2003 - 3,485 42.5 (Iverson x2)
2002 - 3,406 43.7 (Antoine Walker, Iverson)
2001 - 3,443 42.0 (Michael Finley x2)
2000 - 3,464 42.2 (Michael Finley x2)
1999 - 2,060 41.5 (Kidd, Iverson) * lockout
1998 - 3,394 41.4 (Michael Finley x2)
1997 - 3,362 43.1 (Glen Rice, Anthony Mason)
1996 - 3,457 42.2 (Anthony Mason x2)
1995 - 3,361 41.0 (Vin Baker)
1994 - 3,533 43.1 (Latrell Sprewell)

Thibs played Deng "so much" right? ****ing wrong. Deng over the past 20 seasons has played the 19th and 20th least minutes per game as a league leader. And neither time did he lead the league in total minutes played. It's an albatross how long this misconception has played out for with no journalist, former coach, analyst, whatever exposing it for what it is - utter ****.

After reading this post, this may be the dumbest statement ever posted here. It doesn't take a lot of "talent" to coach a team that has three of the top players. Thibs has over achieved with the talent he has been given. You can't believe what you said.

Not mad. Just speaking the truth. I could coach the Heat to the same record... so could you. Their talent is through the roof.

Again not trolling, just speaking the truth. Now trolling would be me saying the Philly is going to win the championship after beating Chicago and Miami right?

I responded back to both of you because I didn't want to get involved in a 2 year old pissing contest. I wasn't trolling and I don't need help or responses from someone with an idiotic opinion about coaching when anyone with any decent basketball knowledge knows Thibs trumps him by so far that it's not even funny. Reading comprehension.... get it?

he definetly gets more flack than he deserves, I just don't like that he's like a robot with his rotations at time, regardless of how well someones playing on the court.
