Mike Brown is a worthy recipient of the NBA's Coach of the Year Award as he led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the best record in the league and one of the best home court records in history. Just a couple of years ago, you couldn't fend off the rumors that he should be fired because he wasn't using LeBron correctly or getting enough out of his team or he was too focused on defense or...the list goes on. So congrats to MB!
Where I do have a problem, is Nate McMillan not even cracking the top 3 in the voting...
The guy coaching the youngest team in the NBA who just led his team to an extra 13 wins this year deserves some serious recognition. Let me say those two things again, a 13 WIN DIFFERENCE and YOUNGEST TEAM in the NBA. (Yes technically not the youngest, but that's because of Raef Lafrentz still hanging onto the roster. Without him, it's easily the youngest.)
Rick Adelman finished 2nd while leading his team to a worse record this year with one of the most veteran squads. Stan Van Gundy finished 3rd while adding 7 extra wins and probably deserved to be in the top 3. In fact, you could argue he deserved to win the damn thing.
But seriously, Nate McMillian doesn't find his way anywhere in there? Time for sports writers to open their eyes...
