Tom Thibodeau and I will explain later when I have the time. A friend and I were discussing on how big an impact he has had on the Bulls (more than the addition of Boozer and the seemingly improved Rose).

Either between Thibs, Pops or my dark horse... Mr. Doug Collins. What he's done with the Sixers is very, very impressive. Hell, they might pass the Knicks and catch the Hawks.

I like what Nates done but I think Tom will get it.

Thibs hands down! The only one that could get it beside him is Pops but we all know its Thibs!

Mr. Baller
03-18-2011, 11:22 PM
Thibs deserves this. Collins and Pops should come in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Tom Thibodeau, he has 65% of the credit for what have done the Bulls this season. The other 35% is Rose.

I really don't care about this award anymore after last year and possibly even the year before in McMillan not getting it. How in any world does it make sense that Brooks got it over McMillan with all the injuries they had and still had a better recored than the Thunder is beyond me. As far as I'm concerned its just a popularity contest and the coach with the biggest star wins, i.e. durant>roy

Tie between Thibs and Pop IMO.....I'll wait until the end of the season.

If the Nuggets go on a tear against the competition they have left (Heat, Lakers, Spurs, & Thunder 2x I believe)......then Karl could get a fair amount of votes.

^ it's because of the amazing turnaround OKC had while the Blazers were still a good team the year before, even though it was amazing how Nate held that team together even with all those missing key guys.

As for this, I'm going to be a homer and say Doug Collins, but it really should go to Thibs. At the beginning of this season, I thought this team would be one of the worst in the East if not THE worst. Every analyst chose the Sixers to be basement dwellers this year. I thought Elton and Iggy would be goners for sure and we'd just run and gun with the young guys this whole season...... boy was I wrong.

It started out slow, we were 3-13 to start the season, but 33-20 later and we're suddenly a "good" team.

Since January 25th, the 76ers have the 2nd best record in the East, only behind the Bulls (which is why Thibs should get it)

Collins is seriously a father figure to this team, it's unlike any relationship I've seen between players and a coach in the NBA before to be honest. It seems like he actually cares about each and everyone of the players and he just has so much wisdom and knowledge of the game (he was already my favorite announcer prior to signing with us) he was the perfect man for the job.



The sixers basically have the same personnel as last year but they play 1000X harder because of Doug and it really shoes in games like tonight (against the kings) where we play teams with the same amount of talent, but just blow them out because we play harder than anyone else.

Why Thibodeau?

This Bulls team wasn't too bad under VDN, and this year, they have the consensus league MVP and got a big money free agent in the summer. Did anyone expect the Bulls to do bad? :confused:

03-19-2011, 12:28 AM
1. Thibodeau
2. Collins
3. McMillan

But it's really Tom and noone else. I can't see it really being that close.

IMO its Pop or Thibs. I voted Pop, because the Bulls excellent season will be represented by Roses MVP.

are you serious?

the bulls were a .500 team with VDN

boozer? if he would stay on the court maybe

as far as them expected to be bad? well nobody had them contending for 1st before the season started in the east, so yeah they were not expected to be 1st, 2nd, or even 3rd in the east.

I gotta go with Gregg Popovich, Doug Collins, and Tom Thibideaux.

First, you gotta admire Pop; he's built a top tier team through low first round and second round draft pick talent and molded them into the top team in the west. That's damn good coaching. Also, he changed the philosophy of his offense this year to put the offense on the shoulders of the guards rather than on Duncan. COTY!

Doug Collins has done a great job with the Sixers and has a solid lineup now game in and game out. He's been the biggest difference in the improvement, in my opinion.

Thibs has done a great job, but the Bulls also greatly improved in the offseason and have tremendous depth. I can't say that Vinnie Del Negro wouldn't have 50+ wins with this squad as well.

Therefore, I think Pop has done the best job.

not bad ,but most(not all) thought us to be pretty mediocre when ranking us before the season started.say 35-40% didnt even pick us to win the div,and if we did than would be clearly behind magic,heat,c's in the standings by a wide margin(i disagreed with that personally but what it was)

Thibideau... Easily.

Byron Scott just because he's awesome. Not sarcastic. I do think he's awesome and next year he'll turn the Cavs around.
Thibedeou in Chicago.

Arch Stanton
03-19-2011, 01:31 AM
John Keuster as a close second.

if the sixers can pass ATL for the 5th seed collins should get it. 27-55 last year with the same squad (even worse squad since we traded dalembert for hawes, and willie green for craig brakins who doesn't even play)

GREATNESS ONE
03-19-2011, 01:52 AM
I think Thibs but Pop is going to win.

I'll go with Thibs, but Popovic has a strong case for himself. Thibs' defensive schemes are amazing.

None of the above.
If I were voting, I'd vote for Sloan, just out of respect, but if I were voting for who has helped their team play to their max potential, I'd have to pick Adleman.

Adleman has a team that, if coached by almost anybody, would be an NBA cellar dweller and looking to get the highest pick in the draft. Lets face, Kevin Martin is good, but he's not a franchise player by any stretch of the imagination, and is a border line all-star at best. I love the guy, and I think he is very talented, and has the Cavs had him last year the likely would have won it all, but that is Houston best chip. And Louis Scola is their second option? The guy would be coming off the bench and begging to crack the rotation with any of the contenders. Shane Battier, who I also love, is a defensive specialist with a great shot behind the arc, but he is a role player (a great role player).

And who else is on that team? Kevin Lowery and Aarron Brooks have suited up for Houston this season, but seriously look at their roster. I would have guessed the Cavs would have done better with Jamison, Anderson, Hickson and Mo-Will.

But Adleman, whose Rockets is playing in the TOUGHEST division (EVERY TEAM IS OVER .500!) and in the Western conference (who has several teams over .500 who arent even in playoff contention while the east has teams well under .500 looking to lock up a playoff spot).

Bottom line: Adleman has done more with less than any coach in the league! Not a Houston fan at all, just a fan of the game, and it seems clear to me that Adleman is the most deserving of the award in my eyes.

The Bulls, coaching staff is great, but I really see these guys being lead by Rose. The Spurs: They have several all-stars. Boston as well. Collins is doing great. And everybody you have listed is doing a solid job this year (though Jackson's Lakers should have a better record than they do), but there is no question in my mind that Adleman is the coach of the year.
