Re: Celtics hire Brad Stevens as head coach
I really like this move. Stevens is widely considered a basketball guru of sorts. What better opportunity for him to show what he's got on the professional level? No one is expecting much of anything out of this Celtics' team.
If he's too young and not respected by the players, you have a mess on your hands that just so happens to coincide with the best draft in over a decade.
If he does live up to being the great basketball mind that a lot of people believe he is... Well, the Celtics could have conceivably upgraded from Doc Rivers.
Either way, I'd be happy if I'm a Cs fan. Much better choice than just tossing out one of the same old retreads.
