I am sure the past couple years have been taken into account (drafting Paul George, trading for Hibbert), but my point is that it shouldn't. Executive of the year should have nothing to do with past seasons and that's why I think the Clippers' GM should have won this award. If Coach of the year is based on a single year, then why not this award? NBA needs to keep it consistent.
