Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

Regardless of what crappy looking starting lineup the Bulls put up, they are capable of winning any game. Last night they were missing both Boozer and Noah and still almost won that game against the Nets.

This is a team that is battling for a top 3 seed without its superstar and despite multiple injuries and a revamped bench! This is a team that should be a lottery team, yet hes got these guys balling. Amazing job by Thibs, the only knock on the guy is that he plays his guys way too many minutes.

So my question to you guys, is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

I'm not sure how I feel about Rose's injury last year. While I can't blame it on Thibs, freak accidents do happen, as you said Thibs plays his people way too many minutes. I have to admit though, he can get buy in to his system and his players play hard for him. So, if he's not the best, he's definitely in the conversation.

He's certainly no pop, but I'd put him on the top five probably.

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

Top 5 no doubt. He's in my top 2 with Popovich. Incredible coach.

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

I wont call him the best coach till he wins a chamampionship, but he has really impressed me the way he has kept this team going without rose... the bulls got themselves one hell of a coach

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

Pop is great, arguably the best in the game. I think his willingness to sacrifice regular season wins in order to rest his guys, is what puts him above Thibs. Thibs as great as he is, still coaches every single game like its game 7 of the NBA finals, over the course of a long 82 game season its going to take its toll on the guys.

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

He is either the best coach in the NBA or second best coach in the NBA.

We lost Rose and we are the 3 seed in the East. Thibs seems to maximize the potential out of the players he is given.

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

Can you imagine him on the Lakers, and guys buying into his system. Good thing we locked him up, probably the best move the Garpax era has ever done.

I give thibodeau alot of credit for winning without rose, but he has 3 former or current all stars in his starting lineup, lets not act like he is rolling out there with the bobcats roster

I didn't compare the Bulls to the Bobcats, but playing like this without your MVP is impressive I do attribute it to our coaching staff. Everyone was writing them off this year, especially after the bench mob was disbanded. The expectations were for the Bulls to be about a .500 team and sneak into the playoffs. At this point they could end up being 1-4 seed.

Its not like the rest of our starting line-up has been injury free either. Rip and Kirk has missed significant time, and our all-stars have all missed several games as well.

They beat the Hawks last night without Rose, Boozer, Noah, and Hinrich.

All things considered, that win was just incredible.

Re: Is Tom Thibodeau the best coach in the NBA?

I can't quite put him over Rick Carlisle or Coach Pop, but I'd say he's right in that next tier with Doc, Rick Adelman, and Mike Woodson.

First of all, lets not act like the 3 former all stars you talk about are anything more than reserve all stars, especially in a league that isn't very deep in All Star talent.

The point is, hes winning with those guys out. Hes winning with his superstar out, hes got guys like Marco Bellineli and Nate Robinson playing better than they have in a long time.
