    Voting due before the playoffs start. Bulls, 2011, Suns 2005, Grizzlies 2004, were 3 of the more recent dual winners.

    Thanks, now that I think about it, makes sense if a team is winning that the GM and coach might win it in the same year. Woody and Grunny were very close to winning both for the Knicks this year.

    ESPN just ran an article about Karl being one of the most disappointing coaches in the playoffs because he has only gotten out of the 1st round once though he has made the playoffs for 10 consecutive seasons.

    Lame Lame Lame

    Look no one involved in The Dwight Howard trade should be eligible...true of the 3 other teams looks like Denver got the most value, yet that was not crafty GM skills but rather an idiot calling the shots in Orlando...that deal frankly should not have gone down!

    Dumping Al Harrington and getting Iggy was brilliant in any other case, but this was like beating a blind kid in mini Golf! Orlando's GM in one season has put himself on Isiah's level! I mean JJ Reddick for Tobias Harris when Playoff bound teams were offering 1st and 2nd rounders in whatever draft you wanted!

    I mean not for nothin Uri is a bright young GM in the league but the success of his team has been from moves in years past, what did he do this particular season that really elevated his team? Iggy helped but Ty Lawson was their MVP. And on a team with Gallo,Wilson,Corey Brewer, was there really a need for another SF...again the brilliance is in dumping Harrington but again that was more foolishness by your trading partner.

    Not to mention there is a chance (albeit a small one) that they lose Iggy in off season which means Arron Affalo and a 1st rounder were lost for 1 season

    now to Glenny

    you can not emphasize enough the importance of landing a starting PG and not matching Lin's contract. Now consider Felton's value and what we gave up for him then much respect is due to Glen

    Camby's contract and Novak could be the killers here

    but Pablo and Copeland are huge saving graces. These are guys any NBA team had the right to pursue this off season but did not and are two of the best diamond in the rough finds this season.

    KMart's signing was awesome

    How about not caving and hiring a big name coach but going with the coach that took over and got it done on an interim basis (there is this corny team in black that should take a page out of this book). Not Phil, nor Jerry Sloan got a call, this illustrated confidence in Woody and Woody showed he deserved it this season!

    We did not bite on that Jared Dudley for Shump deal during the season.



    But no use crying over spilled milk, congrats to Uri! Glen Knicks fans are proud of you and that's no easy feat!

    ^ Good post. Grunny was tied for 3rd in the voting with Daryl Morey of Houston and Gary Sacks of LA was second in the voting.
