1. Gregg Popovich, Spurs
Last year: #23

Total compensation (salary, benefits, equity): $13.5 million
Popovich spent most of the year being compared to another San Antonio coach: “One more year of being named best coach in the NBA,” as ESPN.com’ Kevin Arnovitz recently put it. And while Popovich might just out-live his competitor in the near future, the San Antonio Spurs won’t be around forever. And Pop may not last long as the Spurs’ leader. But when the question is asked, “who is the highest paid NBA coach?” he’s the answer.
The first time I heard of the “L” word, I thought it might be an abbreviation for “legitimate,” since “legitimate” is what the word “lifer” is derived from. But to what extent is it appropriate? Can someone look like they are lying through their teeth, or not be in full agreement with the whole truth and yet be considered to be sincere? This term has a long and colorful history in literature, where it was applied to certain persons or causes who had not been able to achieve their goals and thus became dishonest. I thought I would start the exploration by going back to the book of Ruth. The L-word as a concept is not new. In Chapter 6 of Ruth, the first volume of the Bible, I referred to the false prophet Zechariah who was falsely declared faithful to the Lord. In chapter 15, we read of the Messiah, and in chapter 18, of the “L”s, who “sought their life, because of the evil things which they had done.” Is it possible, I ask you, that when the L-word is applied to persons without any real understanding of what they really say, we can consider them to be liars? Is it possible for an untruthful man to be sincerely involved in the salvation of the Church? Would it be logical for an honest man who is working closely for the Lord to say nothing whatever to the Church, just as a man who was not in agreement with his bishop might say nothing to the bishop? This would be the first time that people would be considered liars because of their actions. But to what extent do liars get rewarded for lying themselves, or their words, or their deeds, in the sight of God? I would like to present the following, taken from
