Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Today the NBA announced that Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl won the 2013 Coach of the Year award, finishing with 62 out of 121 possible first place votes, beating out Erik Spoelstra, Mike Woodson and Gregg Popovich for the honor.

Brooklyn Nets interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo finished tied for 10th in the voting, picking up a first place vote and a second place vote. Carlesimo finished with a 35-19 record as the interim coach -- an impressive .648 winning percentage -- and led the team to home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Finishing just behind Carlesimo were Doc Rivers and Scott Brooks. Rivers, who is coveted by some to replace Carlesimo as the Nets head coach and Brooks, who coached the Oklahoma City Thunder to the best record in the Western Conference.
