The author is interested in a variety of topics in the sector of sports, especially coaching. Growing up in a household with a father who was a high school basketball coach for 21 years, the author has always seen sports in a different light, especially basketball. As a result, the author has been intrigued for quite some time by possible indicators and/or predictors for successful basketball coaches. Principles taken from Dr. Dean Kashiwagi's Infomation Measurement Theory and Kashiwagi Solution Model were utilized in the evaluation of current and former coaches in the National Basketball Association. 4 NBA coaches were researched in a manner that evaluated their overall success based on: longevity, wins/losses, and championships. While many of the key principles highlighted in IMT/KSM are applicable in this study, much of the emphasis was placed on evaluating Type A and Type C characteristics present in both successful and unsuccessful coaches.
