Grading Rick Carlisle's Season for the Dallas Mavericks So Far
Jason DeCrow/Associated Press

Rick Carlisle does not have the most talented roster in the NBA, but he may get more out of his team than any other coach.

The Dallas Mavericks are battling for a playoff spot, and if their coach has anything to do with it, they will be able to secure a spot in the postseason. For years Carlisle has been one of the best coaches in basketball.

While sometimes his coaching may go unnoticed, there is no way to look past the facts. Carlisle has a career winning percentage of better than 58 percent, a Coach of the Year award and an NBA championship.

With Carlisle in line to avoid a season below .500 for the 11th time in 12 years as a head coach, his work so far in the 2013-14 season has been about as impressive as ever.

Now, we’ll grade just how remarkable Carlisle’s year has been thus far.
