In this Top 15, we find without surprise Phil Jackson (11 titles) and Red Auerbach (9 titles), the most successful of all, considered by many to be two of the three best coaches of all time. In the company of Gregg Popovich (5 titles), also honored and who could reinforce his candidacy of “GOAT” of coaching with the record of victories of a technician, in the regular season.

A record that the brain of the Spurs (1,330 victories) should steal soon from Don Nelson (1,335 victories), certainly without a ring but still present in this honorary list. This is also the case of jerry sloan.

As for the coaches still in activity, in addition to Gregg Popovich, they are Steve Kerr (3 titles), Erik Spoelstra (2 titles) and Doc Rivers (1 title) who were also honoured. The current Miami strongman also accompanies his president, Pat Riley (5 titles).
