No head coach helped develop an efficient winning true team, with no star players, better than coach Jeff Hornacek. Unfortunately, most voters go by the coach who gets his team to the playoffs. Coach Hornacek had great teachers who understood fundamentals must be taught strictly and there is no “I” in TEAM. Coach Cotton Fitzsimmons and coach Jerry Sloan were Hornacek’s coaches and teachers. Hornacek was a terrific instinctual player once he learned his coaches’ teachings automatically. You could see his teachings were embraced by all of the 2013-14 Phoenix Suns. Truth is performance and no coach turned his team around faster than Hornacek. It was fun to watch and the young Suns players look like they were having fun.
