Vogel a Candidate for Coach of the Year?
I am telling Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel he should get serious consideration for NBA Coach of the Year.
“(The Bulls’) Tom Thibodeau,” he says quickly before the Pacers’ memorable 112-104 comeback victory over the New York Knicks. “With team success comes all the individual stuff. Without Derrick Rose (who has missed time with injuries)?”
He shakes his head.
Yes, Tom Thibodeau. He’s got to be the front-runner. And San Antonio’s eternally excellent coach, Gregg Popovich, deserves a mention with the way he has massaged an aging and sometimes injured roster. Doug Collins in Philly has done a nice job, although his team is flailing.
