I just wanted to give a shout out of Nate and his coaching job this year with the Pacers!!  He should definitely finish in the top 5 in Coach of the Year voting this year!!  He led them to a tremendous regular season and MAY lead them to the upset of the playoffs this year!!  (Time will tell!!)

And he is a former NC State player who hails from Raleigh, NC!!  Go Pack!!!

One of the more underrated coaches in the league. He's done a great job this season.

Why would that be an upset.. Cavs aren't that good.

Nate has done great. I feared he was done in today's 3 point obsessed league but he has come back superbly this year. Delighted for him.

Always loved Nate. Fantastic glue guy type player. Top notch defender. Big physical PG. Lovely passer and floor general. A leader. A consummate team player. Intelligent. Then he became a head coach. Did a good job in Seattle. Did a great job in Portland where he established as one of the best coaches in the league. Could have won multiple CoY honours in Portland for all his work with that young team and fighting through all those injuries. Incredible stuff.

So happy to see him doing well again with Indiana. Long may it continue. One of my favourite guys in the league.

Because the Cavs were -600 favorites to win the series. Very simple lol. Do you know what an upset is?
CB Mock Deadline - Minnesota Timberwolves
Kemba Walker / Tyus Jones / Aaron Brooks
Jimmy Butler / Jamal Crawford / Treveon Graham
Rodney Hood / Nic Batum / Marcus Georges Hunt
Taj Gibson / Nemanja Bjelica / Jonas Jerebko
KAT / Derrick Favors / Cole Aldrich
