Labor Day is over, and while fall doesn't officially start for a few weeks, the trappings of the season are evident every where you look.
Kids are back in school, NCAA Football is on the television, NFL Football starts on Wednesday Night, and October baseball is on the horizon.
You know what else in on the horizon?
NBA Training Camps, that's what.
Yep, in a little more than a month sneakers will squeak on gymnasium floors, coaches will yell at players young and old and everyone will start to get back into game shape.
The real games aren't far behind. Time to take stock, and assess the NBA's strengths and weaknesses. This is about the head coaches. Who's good, who's bad, and who is in-between? Some guys have very impressive career resumes, and some are just starting their head coaching careers.
All of them will start the 2012-13 season with a similar goal. To play-in, and win the 2013 NBA Finals. Sometimes a great coach doesn't have the best team and sometimes it's the reverse.
Which coaches are at the top of the coaching pyramid as the NBA heads towards it's first normally scheduled tip-off in nearly two years?
Only one way to find out.
