Phil is the zen master that uses spiritual methods
Riley is the cool dude who is a master motivator
Pop is the military general who gets his players playing on order

Riley wasn't cool, he was really, really intense.

His slick back hair & the way he talked made him cool, but I agree he was very intense.

Offensive schemes: Phil Jackson
Defensive schemes: Tie between Gregg Popovich and Pat Riley
In game adjustments: Gregg Popovich
Rotations: Gregg Popovich
Developing young talent: Gregg Popovich
Managing egos: Pat Riley
Adjusting to aging rosters: Gregg Popovich

I wrote down Gregg Popovich so many times but it doesn't make him a better or greater coach than Riley or P-Jax.

I believe Pat Riley is the most versatile of these 3. He was the coach of arguably the goat offensive team and I can imagine him coaching a team like the mid '00s Spurs leading to the title.

And people whom saying P-Jax always had a loaded team should hand it to him. In his 20 year coaching career, he coached a contender team 16 times, got to the NBA Finals 13 times and won it all 11 times. The guy had the best winning formula.


In my goat coaches list, top 3 is like this;
1. Phil Jackson
2. Pat Riley
3. Gregg Popovich

Offensive schemes: Phil (though Pop has to be up there)
Defensive schemes: Riley (though Pop has to be up there again too, and Phil was very good)
In game adjustments: Phil
Rotations: Pop
Developing young talent: Pop
Managing egos: Phil
Adjusting to aging rosters: Pop

I have them ranked like this overall.

1.Phil
2.Pop
3.Riley

All great, though, and I believe they've all shown how important coaching is. People who diminish coaching diminish one of the great things about the game, and sports in general.

I pretty much agree with this, although I would put PJ in a tie for managing egos. The guy had to deal with some of the most head strong, frustrating, diva like players that have ever played the game and he thrived.
