I would have voted for Brad but I don't think anyone is vindictive toward him.  Coaches only get one vote (they aren't picking their top 3) and there was a deep pool this year.

Can coaches vote for themselves? I am wondering who would have voted for Doc? He had a good year based on his situation but coach of the year?


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

I definitely think there is an element of vindictiveness. Coaches are a pretty petty and egotistical bunch

I don't think all of it is petty jealousy towards Brad (some of it is I'm sure)...I think most of them realize what Boston has built and how it's going to hit the NBA and that they're going to have to endure a decade plus of Celtics accolades and praise for Boston and Brad Stevens and aren't eager to get there yet.  So they rationalize it with: he's young and has plenty of time and opportunities to get plenty of awards.

Bill Belichick has only won COY three times...Bruce Arians has won it twice.  Sure

lol

It's weird. I feel both that he was good enough to deserve a coach of the year award and also I think they need someone new leading that team if they ever want to get out from under the specter of Lebron. Either the players have to change or bring in someone who can drill a little mental toughness into these guys.

Apparently, the Coaches vote is the kiss of death...so glad that Brad didn't get a single vote now! :)

I just heard the conspiracy theory that a lot of coaches voted for Casey because they thought he was at risk of getting fired and thought that giving him this award would make it more difficult for Toronto to give him the ax (in addition to him being a very good coach who was deserving of consideration, of course).

This makes a lot of sense to me and could explain a couple of coaches who might have been torn between Casey and Stevens and would have gone with Stevens otherwise.

Zach Lowe/Howard Beck talked about that and it makes some sense. Though also Casey was a fine candidate for it, its a regular season award after all.

The timing of the award being announced was definitely trying to help Casey imo.

I honestly never thought Casey was a good candidate for the award, at least not this year.  Not with the job McMillan did, or Stotts did, or Snyder, or even Bret Brown.  Not to mention Stevens, Pop, D'Antoni, and their usual great jobs.  Casey is a good coach, but the Raptors were the healthiest team in the league.  They have been a 50 win team for years and had Ibaka all season long.  I think just about any decent coach would have had them in the upper 50's in wins.
