Monty Williams was rewarded for his superb season by the NBCA, the association of NBA coaches. The League coaches voted for the best regular coach, and the Suns squad leader was elected.
Several coaches are coming out of a very good regular season and Monty Williams is one of them, he is even at the top of the bill. His peers put him in the spotlight before maybe the NBA did it directly. The Phoenix locker room leader led his team to the best record in the League with 64 wins for 18 small losses, even signing the best regular season in the history of his franchise. The huge highlight of this exercise is the 18 games won in a row at the start of the season, a series finally stopped by the Warriors. Monty Williams has a very talented group, it’s a fact, but you don’t win as many games just because you have good players (Isn’t it the Lakers?). The Phoenix coach has created a quality collective, a coherent, well-built game and each of his players knows his role. Chris Paul is the playmaker of this team with 14.7 points and almost 11 assists per game while Devin Booker planted more than 26 pawns on average with huge hot shots. Around the two stars, the Suns tactician was able to count on Mikal Bridges as defensive leader and Deandre Ayton as racket boss, with huge contributions from Jae Crowder, Cameron Johnson, Cameron Payne and JaVale McGee, to name a few. . Everything is fine in Phoenix, thanks to the masterful hand of Monty Williams who, since 2019, has been advancing his team to such an extent that it is currently the best in the League.
Doing such a regular season is great, but we’re not going to hide it, Monty Williams’ Suns are above all waiting to find the Playoffs, just to finish what couldn’t be done a year ago. After last season’s Finals loss to the Bucks, Phoenix’s goal is more than ever to go all the way and get a ring. It would be the greatest reward for Monty Williams and for Chris Paul, who is still waiting to decorate one of his fingers for the first time after a long NBA career. The troop of MW will face in the first round the winner of Game 3 of the Western play-in between the Clippers and the Pelicans. The Suns are the undisputed favorites in this Conference, even if fate brings them to face the Grizzlies in the final in the West. And when you think about it, the poster makes you really want to. Meanwhile, Monty Williams may land a double with the other Coach Of the Year award, this time awarded by journalists. Tom Thibodeau took the trophy away from him last year, the Erik Spoelstra-Taylor Jenkins duo would be happy to imitate him in 2022. The ballot promises to be tight.
Monty Williams was voted Coach of the Year by his peers, and it’s a well-deserved accolade for the Suns guru. Second statuette in two years for Chris Paul’s best friend, before going to win the COY and the title over the next few weeks?
