NWSB Editor Bryant Knox takes us on another trip down memory lane, recapping the Portland Trail Blazers’ top 5 head coaches of all time. Terry Stotts is currently leading the way, but he’s far from making the list. The top 5 currently comprises Nate McMillan, Jack Ramsay, Rick Adelman, Mike Schuler and Mike Dunleavy. In Bryant’s opinion arguably the most fun time to be a fan was in the early 90s. Those fans were lucky.
NWSB insider Jason Green brings us a Northwest Coaching Profile on ex-Portland TrailBlazers head coach Rick Adelman. After getting his start with the Blazers in the late 1980’s, Adelman has gone onto become one of the best NBA journeymen coaches of our time. Adelman took the vast majority of teams he coached to the playoffs, making the conference championship several times with multiple teams. He is now in Minnesota where he turned them into contenders from the doormats they used to be.
