Knicks Tom Thibodeau wins second Coach of the Year award

Published

Steering the New York Knicks for their first playoff appearance since 2013 while they were expected not to be was a huge factor on why Tom Thibodeau won the NBA Coach of the Year award.

In his first year in The Mecca, the defense-minded tactician led the Knicks to an insane second half regular season run were they finished at the fourth spot.

Although they exited in the first round after a gentleman sweep from Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks, New Yok has a lot to be proud of. They have defied numerous expectations this season.

While obviously Thibodeau will be back as their head coach, they are now carrying a bigger expectation coming in to the 2021-22 NBA season with the emergence of Julius Randle and the much better version of Derrick Rose.

Thibodeau first won the award back in 2011 wherein he led the Chicago Bulls, in which Rose became the youngest MVP, to an Eastern Conference Finals finish.

Here’s what he said after becoming the winner of the award:

“What you think goes into winning and that’s the hard work, the discipline, the sacrifice, playing for each other, and that was the best thing about our team.”

“Every day you look forward to seeing them. Sometimes we fell short, but the next day they came back with great determination and their willingness to play for each other was special.”

faces the unified welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr.

knockdowns. It was the old Manny Pacquiao from 10 years ago,” said Roach in an open

opponent via unanimous decision in the men’s flyweight while Manny Pacquiao’s
protégé Eumir Marcial suffered a close defeat over his Ukrainian foe via split decision to
settle for an Olympic bronze medal.
Despite not owning two wins in a day, Pacquiao made sure to commend both boxers on
their job well done.
“Fight for Gold, Carlo Paalam! We are rooting for you. Thank you, Eumir Marcial for
giving your best! Your Olympic effort was solid gold.”
“The two of you make us very proud!” He wrote on his official Twitter account.
Marcial was heartbroken after the fight but he vows to come back stronger and will take
the lessons from his defeat. Meanwhile, Paalam is one to be proud for himself as he at
only 23-year old is on the finals fighting for a gold medal for the Philippines.
Whether or not he will get the second gold, one thing is for sure, both Paalam and

Pacquiao: “Boxing is my passion, I want to fight the best”

For those who are still questioning whether Manny Pacquiao should continue fighting
with his age already beyond 40, he answered it plain and simple.
Boxing is his passion and that passion remains alive that’s why he is fighting. It’s not
about the money, it’s about him enjoying himself while at the same time bringing glory to
his home country, the Philippines.
“Hard work is the most difficult thing in boxing,” the eight-division world champion said
on his Instagram video.
“I’m so honoured and thankful for the Filipino people for always being there and
cheering and supporting me. This is where I get inspiration from your support and
prayers.”
He is only weeks away from his ring return to challenge the belts of the undefeated
unified welterweight champion Errol Spence.
“God is good all the time. Always protecting me, giving me strength and keeping me
safe.”
