Cleveland Cavaliers coach, Mike Brown, was named coach of the year.
I’m okay with that.
If you think the criteria for selecting an NBA MVP is vague, you should take a closer look at the Coach of the Year award.
Given there are no real guidelines for the award, there is no real reason why a handful of coaches shouldn’t get this recognition each year.
I wondered if Brown would last with the Cavs, but have been impressed at how he has adapted and led.
But that’s the good news.
The bad news is that out of the last 18 coach of the year winners, only 2 are still coaching with that team, Byron Scott, last year’s Coach of the Year, and Greg Popovich of the Spurs.
Maybe they should rename the award, “Flavor of the Month.”
By the way, if you are not convinced Mike Brown is as deserving of this award as other candidates, you really ought to check out this ESPN article on Brown. It’s very good.
