James “I’m coaching her daughter not her mother” Wade.

Or maybe said poster should quit being a nuisance when people don’t agree?

But Wade went winless against the Lynx this year while Amber Stocks went 3-3 in her career against the Lynx when the Lynx had Maya Moore. Very Happy

While I truly salute Wade's job in Chicago, I have to give the award to Thibault. He not only had the league's best record by three games, not only improved his team's record by four games over last season, not only had the highest scoring offense by almost 5 PPG, but got his team to produce this with a gigantic Net Rating (offense - defense) of 14.8 compared to the second place Aces at 4.1 -- and all this with no rookie contributions.

When’s the last time a new coach has improved their team’s record and not won COY?

Yeah, it's definitely one of the years where just giving it to the person in charge of the best team would be reasonable. The Mystics have been statistically the best offense this league has ever seen, and in a year where we were talking about scoring being down league-wide for most of the season. They've been solid defensively despite having several players who aren't exactly famed for their defense. Their teamwork is really impressive at both ends of the floor, despite several players who've been thoroughly me-first scorers at earlier points in their careers. They've been healthier than many other teams, but they've had absences and injuries and just kept blowing teams out anyway. Thibault would be a perfectly reasonable choice.

But it does usually go to a coach who exceeded expectations, and they'd been lowered so far in Chicago during Stocks's reign that Wade might well get it. As in most years, there are several solid candidates.
