This is Williams' first Coach of the Year award, and after an incredible season, it is well-deserved. From the tragedy of losing his wife, Ingrid Williams, from a car crash in 2016, up to this point, Williams has persevered and fought through any obstacle. And now, he is getting the recognition he deserves.

 Let’s all admit that trading for Russell Westbrook was a terrible idea, he didn’t work out in Houston, it worked out ok in Washington. But he wasn’t a part of the long term plan, and it’s not working at all in Los Angeles.  He makes a ton of money, which makes him tough to trade, but teams still find a way to do it, he turns the ball over often and he’s not a great mid-range or 3- point shooter.  Rob Pelinka, clean up a mess you made and trade Russell Westbrook.

I expect a shootout, the Packers just lost a shootout to the Vikings last week, and with Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey on the Rams I expect them to have just enough to beat the MVP. (Expect to see OBJ get involved for LA)

With that said, let's take a look at Eastern Conference teams that are exceeding expectations. 
The Defensive Player of the Year award isn't the most popular award of the league, but it takes a special player to win it.
