14. Gregg Popovich is tied with Pat Riley for the second-most NBA championships (5) since the merger, behind only Phil Jackson (11). “Pop” also sports the second-best winning percentage (.685) among coaches with 10 or more seasons in the league and is one of nine coaches to top 1000 wins in NBA history.
13. Pat Riley established himself as a winner in his first year as an NBA coach, leading the Los Angeles Lakers to an NBA title. Riley and the Lakers claimed the Western Conference crown five times in the next six years and added two more titles to the historic franchise’s collection. Riley won his fifth title as head coach of the 2005-06 Miami Heat. In his 24 seasons as an NBA head coach, Riley failed to lead his team to the playoffs just three times.
1. With a career record of 1155-485, Phil Jackson boasts the highest winning percentage (.704) among NBA coaches with at least 300 games. Jackson’s detractors argue that Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant are responsible for his success, but his NBA-record 11 championship rings are loud enough to silence most of the doubters.
