LaMelo Ball praises Celtics' Brad Stevens to put down Lithuanian coach

And those other guys that get votes, they're unbelievable. With AP Photos.Brad Stevens accepted the Celtics job five years ago transfixed by the opportunity to lead a franchise steeped in history.

"And I'm telling you, I looked at the sheet, there's no way I would've voted for me over any of the other 29 people". Numerous guys who got votes are indeed credible candidates, but it's hard to argue that Rivers, whose Clippers went 42-40 and missed the playoffs, had a better season than Stevens, whose injury-plagued Celtics went 55-27 and finished second in the Eastern Conference.

After Stevens was assured tanking wasn't part of Boston's plan, the 36-year-old inked a six-year, $22 million deal to coach the Celtics.

And though he may never say it, so has their coach. What he did do though was take a small university recruited and coached those players he recruited in a unique and different way that got his underdog Bulldogs to two consecutive NCAA Final Four Championship games only to lose to Duke and Villanova. "No disrespect to the other head coaches but He's by far the best coach in the National Basketball Association". "Because I'm telling you, if it gets to be a comparison contest, I'm screwed". He is also a very humble person.




The Celtics went 55-27 this season despite losing Gordon Hayward for the year in the season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Boston Celtics have repeatedly defied the odds during the season and Charles Barkley simply can not believe how far they have come. The award is separate from the N.B.A.'s Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by members of the news media.

After the head coach spot became vacant after the 2013 season, Ainge, Pagliuca, along with assistant general manager Mike Zarren and team co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, went to IN to visit Stevens at his home.
