The best current NBA coaches are the talented men leading one of the 30 teams in the National Basketball Association in the 2018-2019 season. Like other professional coaches, some come and go with a firing after a poor season many times guaranteed, but the truly great coaches stick around in search of greatness. These current NBA head coaches are definitely the best in the league right now but many will also be remembered among the best NBA coaches of all time. Be sure to vote for your pick for the 2019 NBA Coach of the Year!

So whether you're a fan of the coaches who have been around for awhile, like Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers, or someone fairly new, like Luke Walton of the Sacramento Kings, or just the coach of your local team, come vote for your favorites below!
