There are many coaches in the NBA, some you may know and others you may not. There are a few outstanding candidates for this years Coach of the Year honors. In this article you can cast your vote for who you think the Coach of the Year should be. Here are the leading candidates for the prestigious award.
Jerry Sloan: The Jazz front man. He has coached for 25 years and has never won the award. His team shook off the dictracting trade rumors surrounding Carlos Boozer and are playing as the team to beat going into the playoffs.
Scott Skiles: He has done a great job of coaching but an even better on of understanding and allowing his rookie Brandon Jennings develop, which has in turn allowed the once thought bust lottery pick Andrew Bogut (now injured) to finally start to shine. He has the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoff and looking dangerous.
Scott Brooks: He has the young Oklahoma Thunder running and gunning. This team has taken on the top teams in the league and they have held their own without a big man in the middle. He has this team beliving. This is the team is where no one thought they would be, except for yours truly of course.
Nate McMillian: The Portland Trailblaziers have made the playoffs after having the most injuries than any other coach candidate. With injuries to Centers, Guards and wingmen it would have been easy for this team to write off this season, but they haven’t quit yet.
Stan Van Gundy: After a trade to add Vince Carter the Orlando Magic team make up is completely different from last year’s Easter Conference Championship squad, but amid the injuries and upheaval Stan has them threatening to repeat as champions.
