These NBA playoffs have been nothing short of spectacular, especially early on. The playoffs are all about adjustments from quarter-to-quarter and game-to-game.
Yet, Coaches always seem to be underappreciated or over critiqued. That’s why It was nice to see Sports Illustrated publish a story about the coaches that have done the best jobs this postseason.
Of course you have the regulars: Gregg Popovich and Doc Rivers. But other coaches get credit too. Although Frank Vogel is not exactly out of the hot seat yet, he’s even mentioned for his ability to get his team to bounce back.
Sometimes sports coverage can be too much about what a team or coach is doing wrong instead of what a team or coach is doing right.
My vote goes to Rivers for being able to keep his team together throughout the playoffs despite the Donald Sterling controversy.
