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.

You're an idiot. Do you think players would play that hard for a guy like VDN or Spol?
