D'Tigers Coach Wins NBA Best Manager Award For 22/23 Season

Mike Brown, the head coach of Nigeria's men's basketball team known as D’Tigers, has been named 2022/23 NBA (National Basketball Association) coach of the year. 

The 53-year-old clinched the prize via a unanimous decision and became the first coach in the history of the NBA to be a unanimous winner.

He won the award ahead of Joe Mazzulla of the Boston Celtics and Mark Daigneault of the Oklahoma City Thunder following his feats with Sacramento Kings during the season.

An NBA statement reads: “Mike Brown is the first unanimous winner of the NBA Coach of the Year Award, which has been presented annually since the 1962-63 season.”

The Nigeria Basketball Federation (NBBF) appointed Brown while he was an assistant coach with the Warriors.

He lead the D’Tigers of Nigeria to the Tokyo Olympics but was missing from the dugout throughout D’Tigers’ failed quest to qualify for the 2023 FIBA Men’s World Cup.

The NBBF remained mute on its relationship with the American but eventually broke their silence on Monday, saying that Brown “remains the indefatigable coach of the Nigerian National team.”
