ESPN's NBA Pre-Season Predictions.....

Post by DaTruRochin on Thu Oct 16, 2008 10:28 am

So check out the list for coach of the year.... I mean #1 is pretty cool, but scroll down to #4, gotta love that too Smile OH yeah and some guy named Oden is up for ROY this year...

Coach Watch: Nate's To Lose
1. Nate McMillan, Blazers: Although the West is loaded, Portland will find a way to squeeze into the playoffs. McMillan has a problem most coaches would love to have -- finding enough minutes for his roster stacked with young, talented players.

2. Maurice Cheeks, Sixers: After finishing below .500 last season, Philadelphia will be one of the best teams in the East, although I don't see Cheeks guiding them to anywhere near the Celtics in the Atlantic.

3. Rick Adelman, Rockets: The headache that is Ron Artest loved playing for Adelman in Sacramento. If the handle-with-care duo of Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming doesn't miss extended amounts of time (although it probably will), Houston can challenge for the top spot in the West.

4. Erik Spoelstra, Heat: Miami won 15 games last season, but with a healthy D-Wade and rookie Beasley teaming with Marion, the Heat will more than double their win total. A playoff berth is a strong possibility.

5. Jerry Sloan, Jazz: Everybody knows he has been one of the best coaches in the NBA for more than 20 years, so please explain how he has never won the award. Is this the season he finally gets his due?
