Coach of the Year 



Corpuel: Nate McMillan

McMillan sold me last year when he completely turned around a Hawks squad that constantly blew games late and couldn’t seem to win consistently. The entire team is back together, and I believe McMillan will play a significant role in leading the Hawks to a top four seed in the Eastern Conference.

Kotelanski: Steve Kerr

Pulling Klay Thompson and Steph Curry into the legendary duo they used to be would be an incredible feat for Kerr, and I think it’s possible. He’s done it before, and for a solid few years, he led one of the strongest dynasties in NBA history. A comeback and the putting together of old pieces — Green, Curry and Thompson-— could give Kerr the nod for COTY.

Weinstein: Nate McMillan

Nobody expected the Hawks to be as decent as they were in the playoffs last year. Sure, Trae Young is incredibly talented and on his way to elite point guard status, but when the whole team suddenly started clicking and finding underdog success when McMillan took over, McMillan became the one who deserved a ton of credit. The Hawks will play equally as well this season as they did during last year’s playoffs, and McMillan will deserve recognition for that.

Rice: Erik Spoelstra

The Heat are a team I’m eyeing this year, and Spoelstra is a wonderful coach who, shockingly, has never won a Coach of the Year before. He’ll be the Heat’s glue.
