Brad Stevens Might Be One Of Best Young NBA Coaches Ever, Adam Silver Says

Success coaching in the college ranks doesn’t alway translate at the NBA level. Boston Celtics fans who lived through the Rick Pitino era know that all too well.

The quick turnaround...

Brad Stevens: Zero Chance Kentucky Could Beat An NBA Team

Kentucky put on one of the most impressive displays in NCAA Tournament history Thursday, doubling-up West Virginia by a final score of 78-39. This wasn’t a 1-16 cakewalk, either. The Mountaineers were a No. 5 seed in this year’s tourney and had just knocked off a formidable Maryland squad to earn their date with the Wildcats in the Sweet 16. The 39-point thrashing raised the...

Cup of Joe. Brad Stevens questioned his decision to come here

There were fleeting moments, Stevens admitted, when he questioned why he took this on, but those doubts have not persisted."I talked with a friend halfway through the season when I was struggling,'' Stevens said.

Brad Stevens: Spurs’ Execution Should Be ‘Eye-Opener’ For Celtics

The Boston Celtics are a far better basketball team than they were at this point last year. But as Friday night’s performance showed, they’re still lightyears behind the cream of the NBA crop. The defending champion San Antonio Spurs took the visiting Celtics to school, leading by double digits for all but six minutes in a 101-89 rout. It was another humbling loss for the C...

Celtics should have their eye on the sixth seed. Yes, No. 6.

Awesome (fake) St. Paddy's Day t-shirt.In case you haven't noticed, the Celtics are pretty good right now.  They've won five in a row, the longest streak of Brad Steven's NBA career and the second-longest in the league at the moment (the Jazz have won six straight, and are 9-1 in their last 10.  Utah's lone loss?  In Boston).Last night the C's got a career-high 26 points from...
