Coach of the Year?

The season is nearing its end and the coach of the year race is looking tight. Avery Johnson once again has the Dallas Mavericks playing like the leagues best. Jerry Sloan has helped the Utah Jazz turn things around with the help of Deron Williams. Mike D'Antoni has the Phoenix Suns right up there with the Mavericks. Jeff Van Gundy has succeeded in keeping the Houston Rockets in the playoff race with Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming taking turns getting injured. Sam Mitchell has magically turned the Toronto Raptors into the best team in the Atlantic Division. Flip Saunders has kept the Detroit Pistons as the best team in the Eastern Conference even without Ben Wallace.

I think Avery Johnson should get the COY award again. The Mavs have been doing really well. I think Deron Williams is the sole reason that the Jazz are playing so well. The Suns are only good because of Steve Nash. Jeff Van Gundy might have a chance with all he has gone through with that unhealthy rockets team. I think the Raptors turnaround should be credited to their GM. Flip Saunders does not deserve it more than Johnson or Gundy.
