12. Magic Johnson's Coaching Stint

Date: 1994

It's been said many times before but we'll say it again: Great players do not make great (or in this case good, or even mediocre) coaches. Magic Johnson is the greatest point guard in NBA history but his stint as a coach was quite dismal. Magic took over for Randy Pfund who had coached the Lakers to a record of 66-80 during his tenure. Outperforming someone who had a .452 winning percentage shouldn't be too difficult, right? Think again. Magic went 5-11 before calling it quits and deciding to take some ownership in the team instead. Smart move.
