Youth Bias Against Brad Stevens is Embarrassing

But, the criminal part of the NBCA's Coach of the Year award isn't that Casey won it, it's that Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens apparently wasn't even considered.

Stevens himself, however, wasn't too bothered by the fact he wasn't considered for the Coach of the Year award. "No matter who has played for them, he can put guys in position to succeed and get the most out of whoever has been in their lineup over the past few years".

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has been able to spin the loss of his two stars into a positive situation all season.

The Celtics booked their spot in the Conference Finals last night with a series-clinching win over the Philadelphia 76ers despite having some of their key players in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on the sidelines.

"We've all played against Cleveland now a bunch, and because they're on TV all the time we're watching them just like everybody else", Stevens half-joked. They both agree that it's embarrassing. It has nothing to do with the NBA's Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by select National Basketball Association media. However, I bet a lot of those fans, if given one vote before the playoffs started, would have chosen a different coach. Do coaches resent the positive attention Stevens gets, despite his relative lack of tenure? Zero of the league's 29 other coaches voted for him.


First, he enabled Isaiah Thomas' rise from high-scoring sixth man to two-time All-Star and bona fide MVP candidate. "Becuase I'm telling you if it gets to be a comparison contest, I'm screwed". He doesn't get on officials and does not get on his players.

Game 1 between the Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals takes place this Sunday at the TD Garden in Boston.

General Manager of the Celtics Danny Ainge has to be given a great deal of the credit in believing in hiring Stevens with only his college coaching experience at Butler.

"I don't think that I would ever define anybody in the coaching or playing shoes probably as comfortable", he said.

Yet, Boston won 55 games during the regular season and increased its win total for the fifth consecutive season under Stevens.
