NBA head coaches as players ...

I was thinking of the number of NBA coaches -- past and present -- that also played in the league, some more obscure as others. Just thought this could be a fun thread to have for basketball junkies out there ...

At first I didn't realize you were listing the timelines of their coaching careers...regardless, I somehow never knew before this post that Magic Johnson had been a head coach at any point in time. So, thank you for that tidbit of knowledge.

I'm glad to see Lue survived being curb-stomped by Iverson and went on to a successful coaching career.

Why do I feel like we just had this topic. I'm starting to feel old.

It does kind of feel like a 'players in the wrong uniform' thread.
