Watching and hearing Rick Adelman coach in the Houston-Utah game tonight reminded me of his younger days and how much I liked him back then. This brings up the question for the weekend.
Here is a list of Portland coaches courtesy of SportsEncyclopedia.com:

Here's what we want to know:
1. Who is the best Blazer coach ever?
2. Who is your favorite Blazer coach ever (which may or may not be the same thing).
3. Which of these coaches do you think is the most underrated and/or got the rawest deal from ownership, the media, or the fans?
As always feel free to explain your rationale. Enjoy!
