Latest Sports Results: NBA

A few awards went out this week, and the results were, for sports 24 7 fans, quite unsurprising.  The 2011 Coach of the Year is Tom Thibodeau of of the Chicago Bulls.  He is the fourth Bulls coach to receive this award, the most recent being Phil Jackson in 96, and the seventh coach ever to win the award as a rookie.  Meanwhile, the MVP Award went to Derrik Rose, who at 22 is the youngest to ever receive the award.  The last Bulls player to receive this award was Michael Jordan in 1998, who won five times total.

Lebron James, previous winner (two years in a row) of the MVP award has been presenting a united front with fellow Heat player Dywane Wade, even sitting down with the media together to discuss how their working relationship has helped lead to the Heat winning their first round against the Celtics.  While admitting that things are exactly “a bed of roses” the two were friends before they started playing together and having won 20 out of their last 24 games, whatever they are doing seems to be working.

Meanwhile, the Mavericks were able to swing their first game with the Lakers in their direction, winning 96-94.  Lakers player Kobe Bryant admitted that he was concerned after the game, saying “This team can beat us. It’s clear. We just have to come in ready to play Game 2.”
