Skott Skiles ahead of Avery Johnson?
basically any coach who yells and whines over every little detail. Players like freedom and thats one reason college coaches are rarely succesful in the nba becasue they try to micromanage too much. Phil and pop are also probably getting votes from players because they are maybe the 2 coaches who sometimes get more credit then players for team success and im sure the players dont like that.
Phils is probably on it because of how he calls out other players in the media. The Zen master lol
