Where does Doc Rivers rank?

How do you rank the six coaches to win championships with the Celtics?

If reports in the Boston Herald are correct, the Doc Rivers era may be nearing an end in Boston, with the coach set to step away after this season's playoffs. Under fire at times during his tenure with the Celtics, Rivers quieted some of the criticism with a championship run two seasons ago. But if this really is the end of the line, how does he stack up against the other men who led the Celtics to at least one NBA title?
