NBA Coaching Trees

A quick graphic I put together, showing the paths Monty Williams and Tom Thibodeau followed, en route to their first head coaching jobs. Pat Riley and Dean Smith head two of the most extensive coaching trees in NBA history. I classified coaches into the two trees based on comments they've made in the past about their primary influences. If people are interested in seeing further trees, I'd be down to make some more.
