Warriors’ Kerr wins Rudy Tomjanovich Award from media

Golden State’s Steve Kerr has won the Rudy Tomjanovich Award, given by the Professional Basketball Writers Association to a coach who best combines excellence on the court with cooperation with fans and media. Kerr led the Warriors to an NBA-best 67-15 record in his first season. Kerr beat out Doc Rivers of the Clippers, Stan Van Gundy of Detroit, Brad Stevens of Boston and Dwane Casey of Toronto. The PBWA announced the result on Monday. The award is named for Rudy Tomjanovich, who led Houston to consecutive NBA titles in 1994-95 and was known for being respectful to the media. – Associated Press
