Spurs earn best regular season record of the decade

New, comments

It comes as no shock that Pop is the winningest coach of the last ten years.

Considering how the second half of the decade appeared to belong to the Golden State Warriors, it may come as a surprise to most basketball fans that the most wins for the last decade came from San Antonio.

Obviously, that would make Pop the head coach with the most wins of the decade.

But that of course is only because Gregg Popovich has been here the entire time. For the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Golden State Warriors, they have had changes in leadership which means the next most winning coaches of the decade are also two of the most consistently employed.

Rick Carlisle, Erik Spoelstra and Pop are the only coaches to be with one team from 2010 until today. Doc was with two teams, the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers over the last decade.

Which team will top the win column in nine years and three-hundred and sixty-two days? Considering Pop may not stick around another nine seasons, who do you think will be the coach to lead their team (or teams) in wins over the next ten years?

Can the Spurs wow another generation as we head through the 20s?
