Monty Williams Becomes NBA Coach Of The Year Favorite

  • Monty Williams has +350 odds to win the NBA Coach of the Year.
  • Monty Williams finished in second place to win the award in 2021.

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Suns are arguably the hottest team in the NBA right now as they sit a half-game back of the best record in the NBA with a 21-5 record so far. This comes as the team recently went on an 18-game winning streak after starting the season 1-3 in their first four games.

Everything is clicking for the Suns from their play from leaders such as Devin Booker and Chris Paul, their defense has held their own in the top-10 in points allowed, and their coaching has been off the charts.

With that, online betting sites have odds on who is going to win the Coach of the Year and Monty Williams has pleaded his case.

This should come as no surprise as he is highly respected amongst coaches around the NBA after winning the 2021 Michael H. Goldberg NBCA Coach of the Year award. Williams also finished in second place in overall Coach of the Year voting just behind Tom Thibodeau of the New York Knicks.

Voting last season also came down to the wire as Williams actually finished with more first-place votes than Thibodeau did. However, Thibs came away with plenty more second-place votes leaving the finals score of the voting 351 to 340 in favor of Thibodeau.

It is also worth noting that the committee that selects the winner likes to pass it around. Considering that Steve Kerr, the second-favorite, recently won the award in 2016 while Williams is still chasing his first award, Williams odds could be the ones to cash... especially if the Suns can continue to dominate as they have been.
