Rockets Mike D'Antoni Named NBA Coach Of The Year

D'Antoni was announced as the victor of NBA's Coach of the Year award Monday during the league's award show on TNT.

Antetokounmpo, known as the "Greek Freak", became the fifth player to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals for a season since blocks and steals became official stats in 1973-74. Prior to that, he won more than 500 games over a 30-year period as the head coach at Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach, S.C. This previous season was the most successful in his tenure as the head coach, as the Herd reached 20 wins for the first time since the 2011-12 season. Gordon is the first member of the Rockets to claim the Sixth Man award.

During a night that featured Drake and was capped by Russell Westbrook winning MVP, it was the Houston Rockets and Milwaukee Bucks that made their presence felt during the first ever National Basketball Association awards show.

"This is a testament to guy's who are overlooked, guys who are second-round picks", Brogdon said. Meanwhile, the Spurs' Kawhi Leonard quietly continued to emerge as one of the league's top two-way players showing both defensive and offensive skills.

Bill Russell has received the first Lifetime Achievement award, responding with some trash talk and then praise for the big men who honored him.

Names of jurors in Bill Cosby case are released
On those two charges, the juror alleged, the two holdouts who believed Cosby was not guilty were "not moving, no matter what". In a statement read aloud after mistrial was announced, Cosby's wife of several decades, Camille Cosby, thanked the jurors.

Leave it to Mike D'Antoni to show a sense of humor upon winning NBA's Coach of the Year award. He is the first ACC Player of the Year and NBA Rookie of the Year since Elton Brand.

Most Valuable Player: Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City. Leonard won the award the last two seasons.

Brogdon beat out Philadelphia's Joel Embiid and Dario Saric.

The second team was Denver's Jamal Murray, Boston's Jaylen Brown, the Suns' Marquese Chriss, Lakers guard Brandon Ingram and Dallas guard Yogi Ferrell.
