#NBA Coach Rivals of the Year: t

Budenholzer, Coach of the Year award winner 2014, won the bucks with the best record in the series this season. Calling the shots, Milwaukee made the quick work of the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics in the first two rounds of the playoffs. It is unlikely that his team will have the same fate as the Atlanta Hawks squad he put back in 2014 (They were scoured by Cleveland Cavaliers in the semi-finals of the conference despite winning 60 matches that season). The Bucks look to the legitimacy of a championship competitor. They have three victories away from proceeding to NBA finals for the first time since 1971.
Malone helped the nuggets get the second best record in the Western Congress this season. Unfortunately, the Portland Trail Blazers finished their championship desires in a series of seven game contests finals. However, one of the youngest teams in the series and Malone is at the forefront, the sky is at the sky for the future of these lumps.
Like Budenholzer, Rivers have already achieved the Coach of the Year award, which was back in 2001 when he was working on the lines for the Orlando Magic. This season, he helped the clippers perform the shows while they did not have All-Star in the squad. They also had a significant victory against the Golden State heroes in the first round, including Game 2 when they came back from a 31 point deficit. Although they failed to win the series, Clippers and the Rivers showed that they had the best team in LA again.
Among the three people, Budenholzer has the chance to take part in Red Auerbach, Red Holzman, Bill Sharman, Phil Jackson, and Gregg Popovich as the only winner of the Coach of the Year who led their teams to the NBA in the same season.
