      ...as a player. They're not ranked by coaching ability.

                What’s it even matter? Talk zag hoops instead of trying to be “funny”

                  Wow. Tough crowd.

                  Interesting to note over the years that the best players frequently aren't very good coaches. I posit it's because elite athletes just can't understand why their less talented players can't do the things that came natural during their playing days. That's why the best coaches are ones that are able to relate to the work required to compete at a high level.

                  As an addendum. Most were excited when Stoudamire and Porter were announced as coaches in the WCC. Not me. Sure, it brought name recognition and a certain amount of credibility, but I've seen way too many instances where it didn't translate to a successful program. I'm not saying those two won't turn their programs around, but I would be pleasantly surprised. It takes a commitment like Few and company display and I'm not sure those two are willing to invest that deeply.

                    I've seen Few hit more three pointers than most of the Coaches on that list have hit in their entire lifetime.

                      Not #1. Arguably best shooter EVER.

                        I get the feeling from the write-ups on each player, the criterion they use is if we froze that coach at the year at which they were the best player in their life. Not if we put them on the court right now.
                        A fun article.
