With the 2019-2020 NBA season officially underway, I decided to rank the league’s best coaches. Find out where Houston Rockets’ Mike D’Antoni lands!

The 2019-2020 NBA season has kicked off, as the Houston Rockets have already played in two of the first games of the pre-season. With the season finally here, we’ve been putting together our league rankings to see where the Rockets land in each category. We started with a piece on the top backcourts in the NBA and where the star duo of Russell Westbrook and James Harden land, followed by a list of the top owners in the NBA to see where Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta lands. In addition, we put together a list of the top General Managers and where Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey ranks amongst the league’s best.

One of the key determining factors of a team winning a championship comes down to coaching, and how well the head coach is able to adjust to what’s being thrown at them. Coaching is also very significant considering the current landscape of the league as star players are changing teams at the drop of a dime. The new coach who inherits those players is forced to quickly assimilate them into the game plan. Many times, these schemes and game plans involve changing the strategy entirely to play to the strengths of the star players on the team.

Here’s a list of the ten best coaches in the NBA and where current Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni lands. Let’s get started!
