Boston Celtics: Brad Stevens 'uncomfortable' with recent praise

"Now granted - don't get me wrong - he's a solid coach".

While it's very rare for a coach to voluntarily leave the National Basketball Association to coach in the college ranks, Duke isn't any college job and the opportunity to continue that winning tradition could be enticing to Stevens.

Brad Stevens spoke to the media on Monday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the Boston Celtics took down the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But all of the praise is making the head coach a little uneasy. I'm just saying, the amount of praise he's getting, you'd think he won a championship or two.

Stevens said to Tim MacMahon of ESPN: "It's silly". "The praise is uncomfortable, and it's just something that these guys should be getting it all". We all have a role to play. His young Celtics just held the Cavs to 83 points in their Game 1 victory, limiting LeBron James to just 15 points on some pretty remarkable defense. "We have a role to play and we all need to play that role as well as we can".

That includes some larger trucks than the F-150, although the F-150 makes up the overwhelming majority of those sales. The company is working with Meridian and other suppliers to minimize the disruption.


Parish anointing Stevens as a "solid coach" right now while calling him out for zero rings when he's had the Celtics ahead of schedule at nearly every juncture of his five-year tenure is borderline absurd.

The Boston Celtics have been counted out of this season since the opening day of their 2017-18 campaign.

Stevens would much rather see the praise go to the players on the court, as they're the ones that are getting the job done on the court despite everything which is being thrown at them. But you can't undersell what Boston's boy wonder does for his players.

The Celtics will face the Cavaliers on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals series.

Without Stevens, who knows where Boston's rebuild would be at the moment. When Gordon Hayward went down with a season-ending injury, everyone said that they didn't have a chance to compete in the Eastern Conference.
