I would say a tie between Eric Mussleman and Anthony Johnson(of the Pheonix Suns)

I suspect it will be a guy on a team that wins something. The two you mention are both doing an excellent job. The coach I favor, because he is doing more, with less, is Denver's coach. I'm not going to try and spell his name. Getting that bunch to play hard and winning as many games as they have, is phenomenal, in my view.

Anthony Johnson is the dead-beat back-up to the back-up PG of Nets. Frank Johnson is Suns' coach. Jeff Bzdelik is the coach of Nuggets.
Valid choices... I'd go with Carlisle. Definitely overachievers 2 seasons in a row.
I think it's safe to remove Alvin Gentry from the list. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif

I had a feeling his first name was Frank

Thomas of the Pacers should get some consideration, also.
I think you have to at least think of Nelson. He took a team that finished fourth and this season is set to take the conference. With a 41-12 record winning what 77% of their games. Getting something out of Bradley the guy was a total stiff last year, to part of the solution.

As much as I hate to say it, we must be objective here, Jerry Sloan. He has never won COY honors and he may receive the sympathy vote the way Malone/Stock did during the All-Star game in Utah. Mark my word.

I go with Bzdelik.

Rick Carlisle should win it again.
Greg P. what they aren't supposed to contend this year yet they win 8 straight road games including wins over LA and Sacramento. Wow. If they win the midwest which could happen he has to be the favorite. No one had the Spurs as the favorite but they just might be that. What a way to end Robinson's career with a title, hey it could happen.

Riley...for the simple fact that he's willing to go to war over the pitiful officiating in this league...especially Javie.
