The NBA announced that the Spurs’ Gregg Popovich has been named the league’s “Coach of the Year” on Tuesday.
Popovich led San Antonio to an NBA-best 50-16 record, in a season that most deemed would be a down year because of the compressed schedule and Tim Duncan’s compressed knees.
No coach has ever won back to back coach of the year awards. The streak continues. RT @Monroe_SA Popovich to be named Coach of Year at 2 pm

Popovich names coach of the year? Is this some kind of joke?

Not at all trying to diminish what Popovich has accomplished, just think Thibodeau's been tested more for COY material

Congrats to Gregg Popovich for winning coach of the year. I love his approach to the game and giving reporters hard times.
