This season was undoubtedly a tough one to watch because of all the injuries.
So, coaches needed to figure out how to get past the obstacles thrown at them.
Putting your team in the best possible position to win, along with managing team players' personalities is a huge task.
But here are some coaches who did a stellar job during these unforeseen circumstances.
McMillan became the Hawks interim coach on March 1 and they haven't looked back since. After he took charge, the Hawks landed a shocking fifth spot in the Eastern Conference and have come as far as the ECF against the Milwaukee Bucks this season, something nobody expected.

When all is said and done, Thibs was labeled the Knicks saviour this season. He helped the Knicks gain back some relevance for the first time since 2013 as they made their way to the playoffs as the fourth-seeded team. Under his wing, their defence became incredible. The only question is whether the Knicks plan on making Tom as their permanent coach or not for next season.

After their epic collapse in the playoffs last season, Quin helped the Jazz obtain the best record in the NBA this year. Syner helped them become dominant on both ends of the court, becoming the biggest threats for the title for their rivals. They were one of the title favourites this year but got unlucky against the LA Clippers. Better luck next season!
Coaching issues were something Philly was facing for a long time. Despite having the best players like Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Ben Simmons, the 76ers got nowhere. However, when Rivers became their head coach after last season, Philly landed at the top in the East and looked very dangerous. Although they were eliminated before expected, they sure looked like title contenders.

If there is any underdog team that has outshined the most, it's the Suns. They have just advanced to the NBA Finals for the first time since 1993 after being a irrelevant team for so long. Coach Williams has this team playing the best basketball they have played in decades and was also one of the frontrunners for the Coach of the Year award.
