The following should come as no surprise: Doc Rivers  is very media friendly.
On Monday, the Professional Basketball Writers Association recognized this formally by announcing the Celtics  head coach was voted the winner of the annual “Rudy Tomjanovich Award” – given to the head coach considered the most accessible to the media.
The PBWA also handed out two other awards. Phoenix Suns  star point guard Steve Nash  was announced as the winner of “The Magic Johnson  Award” – the equivalent of Rivers’ award on the players’ side. The Milwaukee Bucks  media relations staff was given the “Brian McIntyre Award” as the league’s most enterprising and helpful public relations staff.
