San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich wins NBA Coach of the Year


In yet another acknowledgement that he’s the best coach n the NBA today, San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has again been voted the Coach of the Year for the 2013-14 season. It’s the third time in his career that he’s won the award and it will hardly be the last.

Even when a coach truly has an amazing season, Popovich is out west doing it so much better. Case in point being both Steve Clifford and Jeff Hornaceck putting together improbable seasons with otherwise terrible teams and still finishing behind Popovich for the Coach of the Year award.

Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau finished third in voting with Hornacek finishing second.

The Spurs have consistently been one of the best teams in the NBA over the past decade and that has everything to do with Popovich. We see aged teams fall apart and youth struggle to fit in but with Popovich it all blends together to form one of the best teams in the Western Conference.
