Brad Stevens Wouldn't Vote for Himself for COY

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens

That result was not controversial, as Casey had an excellent year in leading the Raptors to the best record in the Eastern Conference.

The National Basketball Coaches Association - made up of all 30 NBA coaches - cast their ballots, and Toronto's Dwane Casey was named Coach of the Year.

Other coaches who got votes for the NBCA award were Mike D'Antoni of the Houston Rockets, Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs, Brett Brown of the 76ers, Nate McMillan of the Indiana Pacers, Quin Snyder of the Utah Jazz, Terry Stotts of the Portland Trailblazers and Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers. "Obviously, you know what I've said about Brad Stevens before and his ability to get the most out of his guys".

Stevens can console himself with the fact that his Boston Celtics are improbably back in the Eastern Conference Finals. Yet, he isn't being recognised for his achievements, and this has annoyed one of his former players in Isaiah Thomas.

Boston lost its major free agency addition of last offseason for the year when Gordon Hayward got injured in the first quarter of the season and the team also had to go without Kyrie Irving for 22 games and without Marcus Morris and Marcus Smart for 28 games each. "And I'm telling you, I looked at the sheet and there's no way that I would have voted for me over any of the other 29 people".

What caught everyone's attention was who didn't get a vote: Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics.

The pool of candidates for the mantel of Coach of the Year mantel is as deep as it's ever been.

Ironically, there's a strong chance that Casey will be fired by the Raptors after getting swept by the Cavaliers in the second round, according to TSN.
