Why Brad Stevens Will Win Coach of the Year

Advertisement

We all heard the excuses that came right off the heels of the Boston Celtics’ 0-2 start.

“It’s still early.”

“Gordon is injured.”

“They have six rookies, give them time to develop.”

Under the heroics of head coach Brad Stevens, the Celtic’s have now won eleven straight, including two 18-point comebacks.

Their most recent shocker happened on 11/10 when taking on the Charlotte Hornets at home, and even though the C’s top three players in Gordon Hayward, Kyrie Irving, and Al Horford were out with an injury, Brad was able to give the game a 180-spin and storm back to a 97-80 victory.

Take a minute to let that sink in. Would you have believed me if I told you during the offseason that a team based around Marcus Morris, Shane Larkin, Terry Rozier, and two players aged 20 or younger would have been able to win after being down 18 as late as the third quarter? If you answered yes, you are either: A) From the future, or B) A pathological liar.

Time after time, Stevens has not only kept his cool, but been able to make halftime adjustments to give his players the edge regardless of the type of adversity put in front of them.

Everything from the rotations, to the defensive schemes, to the development of individuals has continued to be one of the best in the league and that is why Brad has played a colossal role in leading whatever personnel available to victory.

Following six seasons as head coach of the Butler Bulldogs, the Indianapolis native is now in his fifth year with the Boston Celtics, and is off to the best start of his NBA career.

With Hayward sidelined for the remainder of the season, Irving listed as day-to-day, and Horford recently upgraded to probable, be sure to tune in on today as the Celtics look to continue their streak against the Toronto Raptors at 3:30 p.m.
