    Question: If the Raps win 55-59 games this year, does Nurse get consideration for COY?
    He should...assuming the other teams with 55+ win teams are the usual cast.

    Depends what every other teams does but I dont think so. That's where we're projected
    Agreed on the bold. But wondering if he gets bonus points for being a rookie head coach.

    I doubt it. Most of the credit if the season is successful will probably end up with Kawhi. When Casey won we put up those win totals with a top 25ish guy and a top 35ish guy according to ESPN and si etc. Kawhi is a top 5 guy so it's much easier to explain for them

    Coy candidates dont usually have a top 3 mvp candidate on their team..and I could see the latter

    I don't think the bolded is true though ... Mike D'antoni won it in 2017 (with Harden); and Steve Kerr won it in 2016 (with Curry). I'm sure we could go back further as well.

    Nurse has to win 65+ to even get in the conversation and even then the NBA will be loathe to give the COY to the Raptors 2 years in a row. It's either Brad Stevens or Quin Snyder's turn, if everything goes as (the NBA has) planned. Luke Walton and Brett Brown are dark horse COY contenders and they have MVP candidates, like you said. Bud also has a shot.

    Phil Jackson & Pops come to mind as well.

    If the Celtics beat out the Raps (horrors)... Stevens would get it... he's been on the cusp.

    Nah, there were big moves this summer. Coaches win when their teams don't make big moves (or dramatically overperform). If the Raps win a lot, I could see an EOTY for Masai/Bobby before a COY for Nurse.

    Theres really no point in speculating coy until at least a month in. Every year there's a couple suprise overachievers. Nobody saw the Pacers and Nate McMillan coming last year for example

    COY is like the MIP award but for coaches. It's usually given to the guy that exceeded expectations the most. Like Casey's team getting 59 wins when some places predicted as few as 43 last year.

    The expectations for the Raptors are generally 2nd in the East with 55+ wins. So that's the bar. He would have to really raise that bar to get into consideration in my opinion.

    If I bet on it right now I'd say Budenholzer takes the COTY award by making Milwaukee take the next step. They seem primed to improve quite a bit over last season.

    I don't think Nurse would want the COY ... Look what happened to the last one .

    The bar I'm setting for Nick Nurse is getting this team to the eastern conf. finals and to be competitive. Anything less than that and I would want him gone.

    Cool article! I'm liking Nick Nurse already, seems to be open minded and ready to adjust to anything that comes his way. I guess we have to wait to see his in game calls.

    I think it's them or the Globe that just dropped their free reads from 10 to 5 per month. You have to be very selective and read all the newspapers online lol. You also have to be a "subscriber" to comment on an article.....
    bluejays.com just dropped all comment sections whatsoever.
