George Karl has won the COTY award which I think is fair enough. The Nuggets had a great season. But I don't understand how Erik Spoelstra polled 24 first round votes and Greg Popovich polled 11 first round votes. Now I'm a massive fan of Popovich. I think he's a great coach but I could probably coach the Spurs or Heat to the playoffs with the rosters that they have. I know people are critical of Mark Jackson's coaching but the guy got this team to play defence and he got this team to the playoffs, exceeding most analysts expectations.

I like the Karl finally got the COY, but if it had been Spoelstra, Thibadeau or MJackson, it would have been rightful as well.

This was well-deserved. I'm sure part of it was a lifetime achievement award because Karl DESERVES to have a coach-of-the-year on his resume, but a strong argument can be made for him as the best coach this year, especially considering he got 57 wins out of a team without a bona fide #1 option.
