let me aware you of the other respectable and great coaches in the NBA.



























http://greenobles.com/data_images/pat-riley/pat-riley-02.jpg

Pat Riley
-3 titles with Lakers, including the infamous promise of a repeat. Took real huge testicles to do that.
-Combined success with entertainment-showtime.
-Led Lakers to 4 straight NBA Finals.
-Led Knicks to 1994 NBA Finals.
-His success with Lakers and Knicks is achieved via vastly different styles, the Lakers with a fast-paced Showtime and the Knicks with a slow delibrate physical play.
-Involvement with Heat's success in 2012 and Finals appearance in 2011 a certainty.

Rudy Tomjanovich
-Transformed an average Houston Rockets (although they have GOAT C in Hakeem) to 2 championship rings.

Larry Brown
-Led a mediocre Sixers team to 2001 NBA Finals.
-Assembled one of the best defensive teams that won a title without any true superstar-2004 Pistons.

Feel free to add more.

you somehow included larry brown without including pop and doc rivers?

george karl is up there too in terms of managing players, although his teams defense often leaves a lot to be desired...
