It’s been almost a full calendar year since Danny Ainge and the Celtics stunned the basketball world by hiring Brad Stevens from Butler University. He’s only been here one full NBA season, although has not even gone through the draft process yet. However, that doesn’t keep his name from being rumored as a possible replacement for Coach K at Duke:
Brad Stevens, Boston Celtics
If Duke goes outside of the “family,” look for Stevens to be at the top of the list. No one on this list has accomplished more, and it’s not even close. Sure, Boy Wonder has been in Boston for only one year, but who knows what can happen in the NBA? Let’s say, for argument’s sake, he doesn’t get it done in the next few years with the Celtics. Krzyzewski has a ton of respect for Stevens and could try to persuade him to take over if Stevens isn’t winning enough in the league.
I’m hardly shocked that Jeff Goodman would be the one to write this. I’m even less shocked that there is a picture of Stevens
