Over the history of the NBA, there have been plenty of great head coaches and one of them has to be current San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.
Recently, Dallas Mavericks head man Rick Carlisle decided to say that Gregg was arguably “the best coach ever” according to the Dallas Morning-News:
“The league is one challenge after another after another. Pop has become a good friend of mine over the years. It’s obvious what he’s accomplished. […] But he’s the best of the best in my opinion. I think he’s the greatest coach ever, mostly because he’s been able to do it with a system. He’s got great players, but he’s done with a system, and he’s adapted their personnel to his system, and he’s done it with so many different moving parts over the years. It’s just been a phenomenal accomplishment.”
Pretty high praise there, huh?
