NBA COACH RANKINGS

InsideHoops.com ranks the best NBA coaches in the league who currently have a head coaching job. We're factoring both past and fairly recent history as well as last season's results into the mix. Updated June 28, 2008.

1) Gregg Popovich, San Antonio Spurs: Pop gets the absolute best production from every player on his team, and is a master of developing team chemistry.

2) Phil Jackson, Los Angeles Lakers: The triangle offense and Jackson's coaching gets the most out of his roster almost every season.

3) Jerry Sloan, Utah Jazz: Sloan's teams are always a walking textbook on playing basketball the right way.

4) Rick Adelman, Houston Rockets: The Adelman effect took a little while to kick in with the Rockets but once it did he got the most out of that roster.

5) Doc Rivers, Boston Celtics: Didn't do it on his own, though. He has to split this award with Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau.
