Kerr Thinks Mike D’Antoni Will Win Coach of the Year


Steve Kerr wouldn’t pick Steve Kerr to win NBA Coach of the Year. In the Warriors head coach’s estimation, Houston’s Mike D’Antoni most deserves the award this season.

“I think the fit with the roster and Mike’s philosophy has been perfect,” said Kerr, who was D’Antoni’s general manager in Phoenix. “What he’s so good at is really giving his players confidence and belief. They’re obviously having an amazing year. My guess is that he’ll get the trophy. He’s earned it.”
