With nearly four decades of coaching under his belt, Larry Brown has definitely put in the work to deserve a spot on this list. He started coaching in college then spent the vast majority of his career in the NBA with a slew of teams, eight to be exact. Though he's bounced around to several squads, Brown has a rep for being able to turn franchises around. In his two seasons with the Clippers, LB took the team to the playoffs for the first time in team history in 1992 then again in 1993. Later on in his career, Brown became most well-known for his handling of Allen Iverson. Despite public clashes between the two, the Sixers were able to make it to the NBA Finals in 2001 where they would lose to the Lakers. Brown got a bit of redemption years later when he led the Pistons to a Finals victory over Shaq, Kobe & Co. Despite his differences with A.I., the guard referred to Brown as the "best coach in the world" in 2005.
