Gregg Popovich has been named the 2011-12 NBA Coach of the Year.

Popovich was also Coach of the Year in 2003.

San Antonio had a 50-16 record this season and were tied with the Bulls for the best record in the NBA.

Some other worthy candidates, but I can't argue with this. His first one right? That's crazy.

My mistake obviously. Perhaps it was Sloan I was thinking of. He didn't get one right? Or am I completely off my rocker?

lol

No, i don't believe Sloan has ever won a COY award. You're not losing it. ;)

the "COY" award should be renamed to the Jerry Sloan award

LX 05-01-2012 07:14 PM

I thought he was like Sloan and had not won it. I guess because he's had so many years where he should have won it.

Nites 05-01-2012 07:37 PM

Well deserved. If you think about it he should have had at least 5-6 of these COY awards by now. They usually only give it out to the most improved coach.

Well Pippen never got a DPOY so, cry him a river Sloan.

dfunkie1 05-01-2012 10:24 PM

i like sloan as much as the next person, but a tough mentality shouldn't win you coach of the year. i don't wanna look back 20 years, but i don't think i've ever really disagreed too much with who won the award. yes, there's always an argument for someone else (pop only winning his second, jackson only winning one) but sloan not winning the award isn't a crime.

Nites 05-02-2012 02:43 AM

Duncan should have at least won 1-2 DPOY awards himself.

Grizz 05-02-2012 07:27 PM

Spurs shot more efficiently on their first possession out of a time out (47%) than any other team in the NBA this season.

Seems relevant.

Well deserved... always like a coach who can adapt to the players he's given rather than being hard-headed and sticking to a certain system which doesn't fit the players he's given.

Beans 05-03-2012 01:45 AM

The way he accepted the trophy made me laugh. He couldn't wait to get rid of it.
