Because Kevin Durant-led Oklahoma City owns the best record in the conference, Scott Brooks will coach the West in the annual All-Star Game.
Corbin and Brooks are former teammates. They remain friends.
"I’m excited for him," Corbin said. "Not just for that, but for the success he’s had with his team ... and for having a super player like Durant being able to step up. Their team is rallying around what he’s doing and they are responding to Scotty."
Corbin called Brooks "... a hard-working guy — he was a hard-working player — and I’m excited for the success he’s having."
