Brad Stevens considering change in Celtics' starting lineup vs. Sixers

12 May, 2018, 14:25 | Author: Greg Wolfe
  • Brad Stevens seems beloved by his players at least

Kyrie Irving, who was acquired in a deal that sent Thomas to Cleveland in August, missed 22 games in the regular season and hasn't played since March 11 because of a knee injury that required surgery. Yet, although they've had some major setbacks, Stevens hasn't been acknowledged for his great achievement.

Brad Stevens didn't receive a single vote for NBA Coach of the Year, but his impact on the Celtics is understood by LeBron.

Toronto Raptors coach Dwyane Casey won the award.

Other coaches who got votes for the NBCA award were Mike D'Antoni of the Houston Rockets, Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs, Brett Brown of the 76ers, Nate McMillan of the Indiana Pacers, Quin Snyder of the Utah Jazz, Terry Stotts of the Portland Trailblazers and Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The most recognition Stevens, 41, has gotten for his coaching efforts throughout his National Basketball Association coaching career are the three Coach of the Month Awards he has won for April 2015, February 2016 and November 2017.

Stevens has always downplayed the attention placed on coaching awards.

"The one thing he wouldn't do going forward was try to lose a game, or you know, 'tank, '" Pagliuca said via Yang. "If you vote Brad Stevens in and he's a boy-genius, all the owners might be like, 'Get me the next boy-genius.'" . The guy that should have won got it.

"The way this guy [Stevens] plugs guys in [the team] and gives them total confidence..."

"I think it's been a little overblown this year because of the names that's been out, obviously, with Kyrie and Gordon and the injuries with those two big guys", James said.

"It's so incredible to have an opportunity to be one of 30", Stevens adds.

"So first of all, I think you know me well enough to know that all that stuff just doesn't ... so anyways, it means a lot more to me when I get a text message from or you hear something nice said from a former player", Stevens said, referring to the support from Isaiah Thomas and Evan Turner.
