As the NBA regular season has reached its midpoint, let’s take a look at the leading candidates thus far for Coach of the Year.

As a subjective list, it can be debated as to where each coach belongs. I felt like nine coaches can have a legitimate argument at the moment to be in the running, and I ranked them as to where I thought they should finish if the season ended today.

Eric Spoelstra, Miami Heat

Just look at the team’s starting lineup outside of Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler. Duncan Robinson. Kendrick Nunn. Meyers Leonard. Somehow, someway the Heat are second in the Eastern Conference with a 27-12 record. A recent article by Clutch Points mentions how legendary coach Gregg Popovich credits Spoelstra for Miami’s success.

Billy Donovan, Oklahoma City Thunder

After trading superstars Paul George and Russell Westbrook in the offseason, it was widely assumed other veterans would be dealt and Oklahoma City would be in the lottery. Instead, they are five games over .500 at 23-18 and are 12-4 in their last 16 outings. Former NBA player and current analyst, Kendrick Perkins, recently posted him as being the current Coach of the Year.
