NBA Power Rankings: Top 10 All-Stars That Could Become Great Head Coaches

September 14th, 2010 by Bhemis Parks Leave a reply »
Over the past three decades, the NBA has become a very player-friendly league in regards to former players becoming head coaches. Last season over 60 percent of NBA clubs were led by former players.

This upcoming season the same pace is set to hold true. More than half the league will be led into battle by former NBA or ABA players turned coaches.

It got me to wondering how many of these players turned coaches were actually peak performers in their era of play. The majority of them were decent pros for the most part, but I was shocked to learn that only four of them were All-Star players (Paul Westphal, Doug Collins, Jerry Sloan, and Doc Rivers).

This sparked my interest: Which All-Star players playing in today’s era could one day become good to great head coaches.

I could have selected some role players, but I felt that readers would be more entertained by seeing which Star player could possibly attain greatness as a coach. So allow me to present 10 All-Star players that could become productive NBA coaches should they so choose.
