I like Quin, but Stevens beat him really bad in March with pretty much only bench players. Stevens is bar far a better coach, IMO. The Celtics wouldn't be in the ECF without him.

I could see coaches being petty or butt hurt that they got embarrassed by him or that they are supporting Casey and his tenuous job situation. But I can't take this COY award seriously if Stevens wasn't one of top vote recipients.

Mmmh...

Fixed.

At least, SociopathEyes is in the top-3. I'll take Dwane's stuff the same way I took Fultz as #1 draft.
Ainge and Lindsay are still laughing.

Stevens also has a team that consists of almost all lottery talent level players even after Kyrie and Hayward are out. To pretend Stevens isn’t lucky (Ainge deserves all the credit in the world) would be short sighted.

Edit- I meant to write a starting five of lottery talent. Obviously not the whole team.

Stevens deserves it IMO, I think Pops is second, then Snyder.

I think it's Brad or Quin.. Second half the year in the west no one was better than the Jazz. Fans were screaming tank tank tank. Jazz was 1/2 game away from the third seed with all there injuries. I love Brad but i'm giving it to Q. buy like .01. That's who close it is.

Usually the flash-in-the-pan COY's get fired the year AFTER they win the award, not the year they are nominated. (This award may be the most overrated award in the NBA, BTW.) How uncomfortable for the the Raptors & Casey. I don't think he'll win, but if he does, I bet it's the first time ever a COY is fired the year he wins.

No it's not, George Karl got fired after winning COY in 2013. Also I highly doubt he wins over Stevens, even Snyder has a much stronger case. I'm very surprised that Casey is up for consideration honestly, I thought the following were better:

Stevens
Pops
Snyder
MDA
McMilan

I'd probably put Terry Scotts up there with Casey, what he did in the regular season surprised me.

Well I think Houston was, right? Regardless, yeah what Quin did was amazing this year. To me Stevens, Pops, and Snyder might be the best two way coaches. MDA was great this year too, and I was impressed with how well the team has played defense, does he have an assistant helping him out with this area, because MDA is infamous for bad defense.

It's never too early to ask for it again.

Last night against Boston, Snyder had a great moment with Crowder after the game. He cares about his players and if a coach supports the player, the player is going to support the coach and do what the coach wants and not tune them out.
QED

Read on Twitter


Agree... it's an underrated skill.
Players are more than games, fame and money. They are human beings often young and spending long periods far from family and friends.
The affective factor should be taken more into account to cathegorize coaches.

Pops likes hugs, too... Brad I feel like he's less tendant to that.

Pretty easy no. The coach he is going against in this series is far more worthy with the injury hell the rockets went through this year while we were actually extremely healthy for the most part besides Exum and Neto.

I just wanted to state this:

SociopathEyes still my favourite NBA coach so far. My opinion of him hasn't changed.

If any, has been reinforced: that troll (and yet effective) rear-defense over the Beard earned him my provisional vote for next season.
