Break out the sugar! Lose by a point or 100 losing 4 times in 5 tries is NOT competitive!

If the 76'ers keep thier record up as their schedule turns tougher and with a lot of road games....then yes, he will be a strong contender.

However, early indications are that won't be the case. They need to finish February strong.

Ah, good discussion. However, the COYA hasn't had a repeat winner (and I mean repeat EVER, not back-to-back) in 15 years. Phil Jackson, Pops etc etc. have only ever won it once. Back in the 80's/90's Riley and Nelson won a couple but since then.....it's truly become a traveling award.

If I were a betting man I'd consider taking a look a Vinny Del Negro with the Clippers or George Karl with Denver.

I think Karl has to be a strong candidate.

karl maybe but clippers no way. there is no way you hand one of the top 5-6 players in the game to go along with the reigning ROY and then hand him the COY too.

Yeah, that's why I would bet on Karl.

No Melo....No problem. Completely retooled roster and making noise in the west. Now THATS coaching.

Not to mention that long-time veteran respected coaches like Karl that have never won it before......that goes a long way.

Mavs are going to finish strong. There is no team in the west that scares them. OKC can out run them, but if they make it to the 4th quarter within striking distance they are great.

I just don't know what to make of the Mavs. Normally I would give them the 100% benefit of the doubt as reigning champs but with all the MAJOR personnell changes I just don't know.

I don't think anyone fears the mavs. The changes hurt them. Kidds health isn't good, dirk is still not 100% and he might not get there. Odom lost his heart when LA tried to ditch him. Haywood isn't chandler and their bench is weeeaaak. They miss JJ to top it off
