Spurs’ Gregg Popovich Named NBA Coach of the Year

As we progress further into the playoffs, more and more of the regular season awards will begin to be announced. The first of these awards came out Tuesday morning when it was announced that San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was named the NBA’s Coach of the Year.

Popovich led the Spurs to a surprising 50-16 record in the shortened regular season, which was good enough to earn the top slot in the Western Conference for the second consecutive season.

This will only be the second time that Popovich has won Coach of the Year, which may be surprising considering he has led the Spurs to four NBA championships during his career.

Popovich did face a bit of controversy this season as he sat out some of his key players (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, etc.) in certain games to preserve them for the post-season.

The Spurs and Popovich are currently leading 1-0 in their best-of-seven series with the Utah Jazz.
