Popovich is NBA’s top coach according to website’s rankings

In a result that won’t surprise many Spurs fans, Gregg Popovich has been rated the NBA’s best coach by the pro basketball website

In naming the NBA’s longest tenured coach the Association’s best, HoopsHype cites Popovich’s willingness to adapt to the aging of his roster.

Here is the website’s Popovich summation: Great motivator and disciplinarian. Refreshingly honest at all times. Doing a wonderful job integrating new players (like Kawhi Leonard) into the mix. As core players begin to show their age, managing to keep the Spurs competitive while rebuilding.

The rest of the HoopsHype Top 10: 2. Tom Thibodeau (Bulls), 3. Doc Rivers (Celtics), 4. Rick Carlisle (Mavs), 5. George Karl (Nuggets), 6. Rick Adelman (T-Wolves), 7. Doug Collins (76ers), 8. Erik Spoelstra (Heat), 9. Scott Skiles (Bucks), 10. Avery Johnson (nets).

At the bottom of the list was Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap

The rankings were made by Charley Rosen, onetime assistant to Phil Jackson with the old Continental Basketball Association’s Albany Patroons. Rosen appears to show some bias in his stinging assessment of Mike Brown, Jackson’s successor and a former assistant under Popovich. Rosen had Brown No. 22 on his list despite Brown’s record of 313-163 (65.8 percent) over six seasons with the Cavs and Lakers. Rosen says he is “known around the NBA as the most overrated coach in the league.”
