This Week's Sports Illustrated Players Poll: The Most Annoying NBA Head Coach During Games. "In this week's Sports Illustrated Players Poll, 138 NBA players were asked, "Which coach is most annoying during games?" Almost two-thirds of players selected the Orlando Magic's coach Stan Van Gundy (65%), followed by the Los Angeles Lakers' coach Phil Jackson (7%), the Milwaukee Bucks' coach Scott Skiles (7%), the New Jersey Nets' coach Avery Johnson (4%) and the San Antonio Spurs' coach Greg Popovich." How is Popovich even ON this list?! I'm guessing that his 3% is 100% current Spurs.
