Tom Thibodeau is the 2020-21 NBA Coach of the Year, the league announced on Monday. Thibodeau received 43 first-place votes and a total of 351 points, narrowly edging out Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams who received 340 total points. This is Thibodeau's second Coach of the Year award, and it was won under eerily similar circumstances to his first. In 2011, Thibodeau took over an underperforming big-market team in the Chicago Bulls and led them into the playoffs based on an elite defense. A decade later, he's done the same thing with the New York Knicks. Some of the players are even the same, as Derrick Rose and Taj Gibson were on both rosters.
