Richard Leonard Adelman (born June 16, 1946 in Lynwood, California, United States) is the incoming head coach of the Houston Rockets. Adelman is a former basketball player and assistant coach in the National Basketball Association. Prior to his current stint with the Rockets, Adelman coached the Sacramento Kings; previously in his career he has served as head coach of the Golden State Warriors and the Portland Trail Blazers.

Adelman began his basketball career as a collegiate star at Loyola Marymount University. In the 1968 NBA Draft, he was selected by the San Diego Rockets (now the Houston Rockets) in the 7th round. He played two seasons in San Diego before being taken by the expansion Trail Blazers in the 1970 expansion draft; he then played three seasons in Portland. He also played for the Chicago Bulls, New Orleans (now Utah) Jazz, and the Kansas City/Omaha (now Sacramento) Kings. He retired from playing basketball in 1975.

From 1977 through to 1983, Adelman coached at Chemeketa Community College in Salem, Oregon, after which he was hired by the Portland Trail Blazers (then coached by Jack Ramsay) as an assistant. When Ramsay was fired and replaced with Mike Schuler in 1986, Adelman was retained; when Schuler was in turn fired during the 1989 season (when poor team chemistry resulted in the team having a losing record), Adelman was promoted to interim coach. After leading the team into the playoffs that year (despite a 39–43 record), Adelman was given the coaching position on a full-time basis in the 1989 off-season.

Adelman spent two more years with the team, but was dismissed after the 1993–1994 season.

In 1995, Adelman was hired as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors. He was unable to duplicate his success in Portland, and was fired after only two years with the team. The Golden State Warriors are a professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. ...


After a year's absence from the sidelines, Adelman was hired by the Sacramento Kings in 1998. Under Adelman's guidance, the Kings were one of the most successful Western Conference teams, qualifying for the playoffs every year since Adelman joined the franchise. However, the Kings never advanced to the NBA finals during Adelman's tenure. The Sacramento Kings are a professional basketball team which is based in Sacramento, California. ...


During the Kings' 2000 playoff run, they met Phil Jackson's Lakers. Adelman questioned Jackson's motivational techniques when it was learned that Jackson compared Adelman to Hitler. [1] Adelman, at various times in his career, has sported a short moustache and hairstyle which bears a superficial resemblence to that of the Nazi dictator. Philip Douglas Phil Jackson (born September 17, 1945 in Deer Lodge, Montana) is the current coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, an American professional basketball team. ... Hitler redirects here. ...

In 2005, Adelman's name was mentioned as a possibility to replace Maurice Cheeks in Portland (where he still has family connections and still maintains a home). However, management of the Kings reportedly turned down a request from the Trail Blazers to interview Adelman. Maurice Edward Cheeks (born September 8, 1956 in Chicago, Illinois) is the current head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association, having been hired on May 23, 2005. ...


In 2006, Adelman (in the final year of his contract) led the Kings to the 2006 NBA Playoffs. Despite the team struggling early, the Kings rebounded and qualified for the playoffs as the #8 seed. Although competitive, they were defeated 4-2 by the defending champion San Antonio Spurs. Adelman's contract with the Kings expired at the end of the 2005–2006 season. On May 9, it was reported by the Sacramento Bee that his contract would not be renewed. The 2006 NBA Playoffs was the postseason of the National Basketball Associations 2005-06 season. ...

Adelman is widely regarded around the league as a "player's coach", and is considered one of the more capable coaches in the NBA. However, he is sometimes criticized for being too hands-off; some NBA observers have suggested that Adelman's teams are not as fundamentally sound as their opponents. Adelman's defenders counter that his teams have often over-achieved: advancing deep into the playoffs without the benefit of a superstar such as a Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neal. For other persons named Michael Jordan, see Michael Jordan (disambiguation). ... Shaquille Rashaun ONeal (born March 6, 1972 in Newark, New Jersey), frequently referred to simply as Shaq (pronounced shack), is one of the most famous professional basketball players, generally regarded as one of the most dominant in the National Basketball Association. ...


Adelman has a long association with Kings' general manager (and fellow ex-Trail Blazer) Geoff Petrie. Geoff Petrie (born April 17, 1948 in Darby, Pennsylvania) is the Sacramento Kings President of Basketball Operations (as of 2005) and a former NBA basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers. ...


In the wake of Jeff Van Gundy's firing on May 18, 2007, Adelman was mentioned as the leading candidate to take over as the head coach for the Houston Rockets. On May 21, 2007, the Houston Chronicle reported that Adelman agreed to terms on a contract to coach the Rockets.[2] Jeff Van Gundy (born January 19, 1962 in Hemet, California) is an American basketball head coach, currently for the National Basketball Associations Houston Rockets. ...

ESPN.com: NBA - Adelman deserves Coach of the Year award (1104 words)
Rick Adelman could well be overlooked in the Coach of the Year race and that would be a shame.
Adelman has come close before, which indicates that there is some recognition for his work.
So maybe Adelman should be honored not just for this year but also for his body of work with the Kings which culminated in the franchise's first division title since 1979, when they were still in Kansas City.
