The Warriors eliminated the Blazers from the playoffs on Wednesday night.
On Thursday, LeBron James weighed in on Portland's season.
"I think Terry Stotts should have been or could have been Coach of the Year," LeBron told reporters after practice. "I can't remember the last time that I've seen a team lose four starters and still be in the same position as far as the postseason success they had.
"I mean they lost Batum, they lost Matthews, they lost Robin and they lost LaMarcus in the offseason and the only returning starter was Dame (Damian Lillard)."
Stotts came in second place after receiving 37 first-place votes, 38 second-place votes and 36 third-place votes.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr won the award with 64 first-place votes, 18 second-place votes and seven third-place votes.
LeBron also showered some praise on Damian Lillard.
"Dame is an All-Star," James said. "Even though he wasn't on the team, he's an All-Star. C.J. obviously is a stud being from here, the Canton area. Of course he's a stud. I thought Terry Stotts did a great job. They had a great season."
The Cavaliers are awaiting their Eastern Conference Finals opponent -- either the Raptors or Heat.
The Warriors are awaiting their Western Conference Finals opponent -- either the Thunder or Spurs.
