Your Morning Dump… Where Brad Stevens is thinking traditionally

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Over the second half of last season, the Boston Celtics thrived largely because small lineups spread the court and open the offense. Jae Crowder often shifted to the 4 spot, Jonas Jerebko sometimes slid to the...

With new additions, will Brad Stevens move away from small ball?

Brad Stevens found success last year in smaller lineups. The first unit struggled to score at times, but a second unit led by Isaiah Thomas handling the ball, Jae Crowder at the 4, and Jonas Jerebko sliding to the 5 gave the Celtics an advantage. During the team's late season 24-12 push to the playoffs, lineups featuring Thomas, Crowder, and Jerebko were a stout +91. That's 27 points...

Is Celtics head coach Brad Stevens finished with small ball?

Behind Brad Stevens' leadership, the Boston Celtics rode most of the NBA's most popular trends (versatile lineups, small-ball, usage of the three-point line, etc.) right into the playoffs last season. This year's roster is packed with more talent, but Stevens isn't working with ideal personnel. The Celtics are loaded with ball-handlers and big men. In between, on the wing—the...

Brad Stevens Expected to Go Down as a Coaching Legend

The Boston Celtics heavily pursued Butler Bulldogs head coach Brad Stevens after Doc Rivers left town to take over the Los Angeles Clippers job. Stevens had taken Butler on wild runs in two straight seasons, and nearly defeated the Duke Blue Devils in the National Championship game. He was a young coach with a passion for the game, and had quite a bit of upside at the NBA level....

Danny Ainge says Brad Stevens will be one of the greatest NBA coaches ever--does he mean it?

Seems like his general manager already envisions him as one.Expectations are going to be pressed hard on Stevens this year, with constant praise coming his way across the league (even from the likes of Lebron James) for what he accomplished in Boston last season.This latest round of ass-kissing is coming straight from upstairs, though, as Danny Ainge...

Brad Stevens: One Of A Kind

Earlier this week, General Manager Danny Ainge of the Boston Celtics continued to rave about head coach Brad Stevens. “Brad is one of the smartest coaches in the NBA. He’s learning the game still. But he’s a tireless worker, he’s a great communicator. It's exciting for me that Brad is getting the accolades that he’s getting. We’ve always known that about Brad. He’s...

Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I wouldn’t have brought him in and given him a six-year contract if I didn’t think he was really good and special,” Ainge said during an on-camera interview with Comcast SportsNet. “By the way, I...

Credit Brad Stevens for one of the gutsiest timeouts you'll ever see (including video of the game winner)

With four seconds left in the game last night, Lou Williams hit a three-pointer to put Toronto up by one.  Brad Stevens immediately called timeout to organize a play.  On the ensuing possession, the ball was inbounded to Jared Sullinger at the top of the key.  Sullinger took a dribble and began driving towards the basket.  Not liking what he saw, Stevens called another timeout...
