I think your last point is the main one...


The great players from the NBA, MLB and NFL from recent decades made way too much money to want to deal with coaching, for the most part. What you end up with are mostly guys who played at the middle levels of the sports who want to progress to coaching. Just looking at the NBA, you only have Steve Nash that was a transcendent player from recent decades. Then you have a bunch of solid guys like Lue, McMillan, Walton and Snyder. And Nash was never a career coach - he just walked right into it.
