    Does anyone know which team has the most front office guys now?

    If Bill Laimbeer gets to coach in the NBA, you could have 3 89-90 bad boys in the NBA head office.
    You also have Ainge, Bird and Mchale from the Celtics. Any other team have a good number of players turned execs?

    You don't hear too much about former Lakers or even portland.

    It should also be noted that Mark Aguirre is an assistant coach with the Knicks, and Adrian Dantley with the Nuggets.

    Magic Johnson was the coach of the Lakers, Byron Scott is the HC of the Hornets, Michael Cooper was briefly coach of the Nuggets.

    Otis Smith & Chris Mullin - Golden State Warriors (GMs).

    No one can touch the classic Celtics though.

    KC Jones - Coach & Vice President
    Tommy Heinsohn - Coach
    Bill Russell - Coach & GM
    Bob Cousy - Coach, President of the Hoophall
    Bill Sharman - Coach & GM
    Sam Jones - Assistant Coach
    Don Nelson - Coach & GM
    Wayne Embry - GM, President of Basketball Ops

    Kurt "Clark Kent" Rambis also had a short stint as the head coach with the Lakers in 1999 and is an assistant with them right now. He was on the laker team the defeated the Pistons in the 88 Finals before moving on to Charlotte
