    NBA ALL-STAR GAME COACHES

    • 61 coaches have participated in the All-Star Game, including the two 2018 edition coaches.
    • Dwane Casey – Toronto (Team Lebron) and Mike D’Antoni – Houston (Team Stephen) were the last additions to the coaches list. The coaches for both teams were determined by best record through games played on Feb. 4, two weeks before the game. Each All-Star Game coach led the team that included the captain from the same conference.
    • Brad Stevens (Boston) and Steve Kerr (Warriors) coached the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, so they were ineligible for the honor in 2018.
    • Red Auerbach coached in 11 editions with 7 wins. Pat Riley lost in the NBA All-Star Game 6 times out of 9 games. George Karl lost 4 out of 4 NBA All-Star Games as coach of the Western Conference Team.

    7 Coaches have at least coached one Eastern and Western NBA All-Star Team:
