OK, so the voting’s closed. You’re the favorite for Coach of the Year. If you were to win that, what would it mean to you? Mike D’Antoni: That it means that I’ve got a really good team. Every coach in the league does an unbelievable job, and they’re prepared and think you’re going to outcoach people, or you think that you’re going to surprise, but you don’t. Now, if you’re in the right situation, and people underestimate you, because usually for the Coach of the Year the team has been underestimated, and that’s how you get it. Otherwise, Golden State and what they’re doing, or what San Antonio’s doing, but as people said, we’re not going to make the playoffs, or barely make it, and then we have 55 wins. So, that’s how you win Coach of the Year, and that’s why most Coach of the Years get fired the next year. You overperform, then you come back to normal and they fire you.
