The Celtics head coach is a proven leader, an NBA alum who can relate to his players, and he's one heck of a dresser — have you seen a sharper-dressed coach in the league?

"That's one thing about Doc," Glen Davis said after practice on Thursday afternoon. "He's accountable for his mistakes. He came to us, and he was just like, 'My fault.' He took ownership."
Humility in the NBA? You better believe it.
Rivers is clearly one of the league's top coaches, but is he the best?
