NBA Coach of the Year battle: Rivers, Scott, Adelman, Phil

Doc Rivers, the NBA's coach of the year in 2000 in ORL, has a terrific shot at winning again this season.  Yes, his roster has three superstars, but he's done a great job of blending that talent.  Plus, it's hard to overlook the turnaround in wins.  Boston only won a couple of dozen games last season.  Doc took heat for last year's mark.  He should receive some credit for his club's success, too.

Byron Scott, Rick Adelman, and Phil Jackson have also done super jobs with their teams this season.  Not sure if they'll get the votes to win COY, but they deserve serious consideration.
