    No. Pinto is a great college coach, but a disaster in the pros by every possible assessment.

    Doc is mediocre.  

    Is there a thrid option?

    Doc Rivers is will above mediocre.  Scott Skiles is medicore.  Mike D'Antoni is mediocre.........Doc Rivers is in the top 5 with Pop, Karl, Spoelstra and Brooks.

    Pitino was terrible at the NBA level.  Even with his recent success someone still would be taking a chance at giving him another opportunity at the professional level.

    Doc Rivers is a great coach. Those who want him gone will be crying when he leaves.

    Heya Hedley - Spoelstra is not a top five coach by any means. He is just coaching the best player. 

    He's a better coach than I thought I'll give you that. 

    As for Pitino he's a bad pro coach and a great college coach, as much as I hate to admit the latter. 

    My biggest beef with him, aside from being a sanctimonious wife cheating prima donna hypocrite, is the fact that he continues to downplay his utter failure in Boston by claiming it was all about not getting Tim Duncan. 

    If he simply had the guts to say "I failed in Boston" I would respect him a heck of a lot more.

    Rivers is a top five coach in the NBA, but I'd put him on the outer ring of the top five.

    power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

     

    jan volk was GM of the pitino celtics, but it was pitino who called the shots and made the personnel decisions. it just so happens that he was a hideous evaluator of nba talent. pitino's ability to coach in the nba would have manifested itself in boston as it did earlier in new york if he had had a decent roster. by his own doing, he did not have a decent roster.

    Pitino drafted Mr big shot and Ron Mercer. Chauncey was gone after half a year and Mercer was gone in 2 years. He was awful.

    an SI panel ranked Doc #2 in the league a few weeks ago....

    Pitino arrived in New York in 1987.....the year before the team won 24 games...two years later they won their first division title in 20 years....he must've done something right...

    There's a segment of a fan base that thinks a team should when a title every year. If they don't the coach is an idiot and their best player is overrated. 

    Never mind, if that coach has had five division titles a ECF appearance a Finals appearance and championship. He is an idiot and should have won five titles.

    I think Spoelstra has earned his stripes by now.  He has adapted, and made adjustments.  Perhaps Carlisle or Adelman should be in the top 5, but Spoelstra is, as you said, a better coach than I thought he would be.

    If I may adjust -

    Pop, Doc, Karl, Adelman, Carlisle and Thibs...............any of those.

    Guys -

     

    Maybe I am naive, but is there really even the concept of a "great NBA coach" these days? Or is it more like a handful of adequate coaches and a bunch of inexperienced or inadequate ones? Thats how I feel about Spol. He is now an adequate coach. Is he "great"? No. Is Doc "Great"? He is a good player coach, draws good plays, sometimes makes good use of the pieces Danny gives him. But, when's the last time someone said, "wow, what a brilliant move!"? 

     

    My point is: What makes a Great coach? Is it just a ranking where someone has to be #1? I postulate that there are no great nba coaches. Just bad ones.
