Default Re: George Karl (?) Named Coach of the Year

Wow. Surprising.

I thought it was going to Mark Jackson or Vogel.

There are a lot of guys right now who aren't great coaches, but who are good coaches, and whose teams surprised everyone. Karl is one of them, and is probably the best coach of the bunch, but Jackson, Vogel, Thibs, Hollins, and Woodson all could have won it.

I guess the voting took place before Denver's utter collapse in the playoffs.

For those saying Thibs without any regard for how good a coach he actually is, simply because that chicago group overachieved without their star: All Thibs did is get his guys injured by playing them too much. That team was led by its spirited players like Noah and Boozer outworking the opposition. They would have done that with anyone at the helm.
