enver Nuggets coach George Karl won his first NBA Coach of the Year Award after 25 years in the league! Knicks coach Mike Woodson placed a respectable third place in the voting, and Heat coach Eric Spoelstra came in second! Karl got 62 first-place votes from a panel of sports writers and broadcasters! He led the Nuggets to a franchise best 57 wins this season including winning 15 straight down the stretch, and 24-4 after the All-Star break! Karl led the Nuggets to the first round of the NBA Playoffs, where they went down in Game 6 (last Thursday) to the Golden State Warriors! Karl is somewhat of an inspiration surviving throat and neck cancer to return to the game to coach again!
