THE COACH OF THE YEAR

Avery Johnson was awarded the NBA Coach of the Year Award with 63 first place votes, and more importantly a 60-22 record this season as head coach of my beloved Dallas Mavericks.

Other African Americans to win the award are:
Glenn 'Doc' Rivers 1999-00 - Orlando Magic
Lenny Wilkens - 1993-94 - Atlanta Hawks
Don Chaney - 1990-91 - Houston Rockets (Antoy, you were right)

I'm Joe and that's how I see it.

Wow, I had no idea. Good stuff Avery!

BTW, how Lenny Wilkens EVER received Coach of the Year is beyond me...he sucked as a Hawks coach, in ATL, I don't think he'll ever be forgiven for trading Dominique. Yuck to him!
