Golden State’s Bob Myers, architect of the league’s best team, has won the Executive of the Year award. He probably should get it just for not listening to the masses last summer who said “OF COURSE YOU TRADE KLAY THOMPSON FOR KEVIN LOVE!!!”
Who knows how that would have worked out, but they clearly did OK.
Meanwhile, Danny Ainge finished 4th in the voting, taking one first-place vote. Here’s how the voting broke down.
Executive, Team 1st 2nd 3rd Total
Bob Myers, Golden State 13 5 2 82
David Griffin, Cleveland 8 7 8 69
Mike Budenholzer, Atlanta 4 5 1 36
Danny Ainge, Boston 1 3 2 16
As of right now, I don’t know who gave Ainge a first place vote, but they’ll eventually be posted here. I’ll update this post as soon as I find out who it was (it was probably Tommy Heinsohn).
Actually… GM’s vote on this award. So it’d be interesting to find out who that vote is.
