Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens continues to be crowned the best coach in the NBA. It seems that the coach is still getting used to all of the attention.
Brad Stevens is the best coach in the NBA. His ability to make something out of nothing is inconceivable. This Boston Celtics team shouldn’t be in the Eastern Conference finals, but with Stevens, all things seem possible.
With all eyes on the Celtics and Stevens in game 1, the C’s didn’t disappoint. They shut down Lebron James and completely dominated the Cleveland Cavaliers. Stevens deserves the credit, but he is still getting used to it.
"“It’s silly,” said Stevens. “The praise is uncomfortable, and it’s just something that these guys should be getting it all. We all have a role to play, and we all need to play that role as well as we can.More from Chowder and Champions3 Midseason Chaim Bloom Decisions That Have Killed the 2023 Red Sox10 Patriots Who Will Be Cut by Tuesday’s Roster DeadlineMLB Screws Red Sox Fans With Broadcast for Mookie Betts Return3 Most Underpaid Celtics Heading Into the 2023 SeasonRed Sox Continue Rollercoaster Season With Massive Win"
Now that’s the correct answer, but Brad, buddy, you are one hell of a coach.
The Celtics are a team of misfits right now. They are missing their top two players and may make it to the NBA Finals.
Jayson Tatum is playing like an NBA veteran, not a 20-year-old rookie. Terry Rozier is playing the best basketball of his life. Marcus Smart is being Marcus Smart, and Marcus Morris is locking down “King James.”
Coaches are important
Brad Stevens proves how important coaching is in the NBA. There is no way the Celtics are in this position without Stevens. He seems to make up the perfect schemes to make every player excel. No matter what hand he is dealt, Stevens is the one coming out on top.
It may be early, but Brad Stevens will go down as one of the best coaches in NBA history. He may accelerate his path to greatness if he is somehow able to lead this Celtics team to the NBA finals.
