Somehow, none of Brad Stevens' peers voted him as NBA's best coach

  • Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens

It's not worth getting angry if Stevens doesn't win Coach of the Year.

Other coaches who received votes were Philadelphia's Brett Brown, Houston's Mike D'Antoni, Indiana's Nate McMillan, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, the Los Angeles Clippers' Doc Rivers, Utah's Quin Snyder and Portland's Terry Stotts.
He is the Coach of the Year.

Casey is also regarded as a top contender for the N.B.A.'s Coach of the Year award and, according to the people with knowledge of the voting for the N.B.C.A. award, was one of just eight coaches to receive votes in the balloting. Kyrie Irving, who was acquired in a deal that sent Thomas to Cleveland in August, missed 22 games in the regular season and hasn't played since March 11 because of a knee injury that required surgery.

Huddersfield sealed a huge point against Manchester City at the weekend and you'd expect that to be just about enough for them. Laudrup's agent Bayram Tutumlu said: "Huw Jenkins [the chairman] asked me about Michael but Michael could not leave his club".

Stevens was asked about receiving support from two former players. They both agree that it's embarrassing.

He certainly is not a self-promoting attention seeking coach that should make him unpopular with his fellow coaches. "If you vote Brad Stevens in and he's a boy-genius, all the owners might be like, 'Get me the next boy-genius.'" . Numerous guys who got votes are indeed credible candidates, but it's hard to argue that Rivers, whose Clippers went 42-40 and missed the playoffs, had a better season than Stevens, whose injury-plagued Celtics went 55-27 and finished second in the Eastern Conference. Most of the NBA coaches today come directly from the pro ranks as assistant coaches/former NBA players to become head NBA coaches.

"The way that thing works is you get one vote", said Stevens.

Aston Martin DB11 gets more power with the AMR flagship
Power from the DB11's 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 is up by 30hp to 640hp while torque remains unchanged at 516lb ft. On sale now, the standard DB11 AMR is priced from £174,995, a jump of £17,095 over the outgoing DB11 V12.

And though he may never say it, so has their coach.

Not that this is anything new in the NBA, however, since George Karl got fired as the Denver Nuggets head coach just 29 days after winning the more prestigious NBA Coach of the Year trophy back in 2013.

He has taken this college philosophy right into the National Basketball Association according to injured Celtic Kyrie Irving. "I'm telling you, if it gets to be a comparison contest, I'm screwed". So while they may believe multiple coaches are worthy, there's only one option.

Michael Owen states his prediction for West Ham v Man United
A cup run may have been great for West Ham , but it appears just as likely that it could have hurt them in the league. Had one other opportunity that he should have made more of but, as it often does, his crossing let him down.

This Coach of the Year Award is separate from the Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by the media.
