It's not because he finished first, it's because of how he did it. Spurs started off 13-10 and finished 50-16. Amazing turn around, and he did it while giving his star players rest and limited minutes throughout the season. He pretty much got the 1st seed using Tony Parker and a bunch a bench players.
Bench players? Thought ur bench players were starters. and side only 5 can be on the court they have to come off the bench by default. Swore some of you spurs fans talke up the bench. Oh well
Well deserved. Could of given it to Pop or Thibs in my opinion, both were definitely deserving. You could say the same for last season as well. Last year it was given to Thibs, so it's fitting that Pop gets it this year.
