Thunder's Brooks to coach Western Conference All-Stars
Oklahoma City tops West with 36-10 record
Brooks is in his sixth season with Oklahoma City and owns a 270-157 (.632) career mark as the team's coach. The Thunder entered Wednesday with a 36-10 record on the season, the best in the Western Conference and behind only the 35-9 Indiana Pacers overall.
Brooks coached one previous All-Star Game, leading the West to a 152-149 victory over the East in 2012.
He was also the 2009-10 NBA Coach of the Year.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel will lead the Eastern Conference All-Stars.
Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich were ineligible to coach the All-Star game this season after having coached last year's game.
