Tom Thibodeau wins coach of the year
 
ESPN reports:

Tom Thibodeau was presented with the NBA coach of the year award Sunday afternoon.

The first-year head coach led the Bulls to a 62-20 regular season and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Thibodeau, 53, replaced the fired Vinny Del Negro in June, and with a rebuilt roster, the Bulls breezed to a mark that matched their best record since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen completed their second championship three-peat at the end of the 1997-98 season.

Highly deserved. Nice to see someone who for so long has operated in the shadows get his chance to shine.

I love him and Lionel Hollins. Totally deserved.

Nice. Well deserved. I was rooting for Poppovich for the majority of the season, but in a way I'm a glad he didn't win it (he's won 1 already). The Bulls played/are playing outstanding, and their roster isn't really filled with all-stars.

I wish they would give out awards after the playoffs. By the time the playoffs are done Hollins might deserve it more than Thib. Thib did a great job though.

Why would they give a regular season award out after the playoffs.

Two different seasons.

Voting on these awards are done before the playoffs.

It's a regular season award.

Voting ended on April 14th.

Congrats to Thibby, he deserved it with the season he had.

Make it so it counts for the whole 10-11 season. Much better.

Congrats to TT :cheers:

I think their front office :pimp: also deserves some credit for having one of the best FA summers ever that seemed to fly under the radar given all the attention heaped on South Beach at the time.

Yup, those Bulls were killing other teams after that 9-8 start. Miami, coincidentally, also had the same 9-8 start and the 3 games between the Bulls and the Heat gave the Bulls the upper hand.

I'm saying that the post-season should be included in the award. I know it's a regular season award.

That shouldn't be included since it's solely a regular season award.

It is as it should be.
