The following should come as no surprise: Doc Rivers [1] is very media friendly.

On Monday, the Professional Basketball Writers Association recognized this formally by announcing the Celtics [2] head coach was voted the winner of the annual “Rudy Tomjanovich Award” – given to the head coach considered the most accessible to the media.

Rivers received 33 votes, topping a group that included Denver’€™s George Karl [3] (13), Orlando’€™s Stan Van Gundy [4] (9) and Dallas coach Rick Carlisle [5] (2).

The PBWA also handed out two other awards. Phoenix Suns [6] star point guard Steve Nash [7] was announced as the winner of “The Magic Johnson [8] Award” – the equivalent of Rivers’ award on the players’ side. The Milwaukee Bucks [9] media relations staff was given the “Brian McIntyre Award” as the league’€™s most enterprising and helpful public relations staff.
