Complete NBA Coach of the Year Voting

On Tuesday, the NBA named San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich the 2013-2014 Coach of the Year.

Popovich led the Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record and was able to successfully navigate the schedule while continuing to find time to rest his aging superstars, power forward Tim Duncan, swingman Manu Ginobili and point guard Tony Parker, so it was a well-deserved award.

Phoenix Suns’ head coach Jeff Hornacek finished second after turning the Suns around and Chicago Bulls’ coach Tom Thibodeau finished third after leading the Bulls to home court advantage despite losing point guard Derrick Rose (again).

Steve Clifford, who took the Charlotte Bobcats from 21 wins last season to a playoff berth this season, came in fourth.

Below, you can see how all of the voting turned out.
