When most people think of the NBA, they tend to think of marquee teams and superstars.

Teams such as the Knicks, Celtics, Lakers and Bulls often come to mind as well as superstars like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, and Derrick Rose.

Yet, much of the success teams and players experience in the league is a result of superior coaching. The league has provided several incredible coaching examples in the past for current ones to follow, such as Lenny Wilkens, Red Auerbach, Pat Riley and Phil Jackson.

The NBA today consists of several of the best basketball coaches in the world. This article ranks the top 10 greatest NBA coaches currently in the league.

The rankings are based on overall winning records both in the regular season and the playoffs. In addition, considerations are given based on doing more with less talent and winning Coach of the Year awards and championships.
