Was Brad Stevens The Right Choice For The Celtics?
The Boston Celtics pretty much shocked everybody with the hiring of Brad Stevens as there new basketball coach. I will be the first to admit I never seen this coming and would never have guessed the Celtics and Danny Ainge would go in this direction. It goes to show you that you just do not know what GM's are thinking these days. Will Brad Stevens be a good fit in Boston?
I've thought a lot about this hire and in some ways it makes sense and other ways it does not. I think the bottom line with this coach will be Rajon Rondo and how he takes to his new coach. Stevens is a guy who knows how to win and will want his players to do it his way. How receptive will Rajon Rondo be to how he coaches. In the end, I think Stevens success or lack of it will be on how well him and Rondo get along. If they mess it could be a long career for Stevens at Boston. Now on the other hand if they do not it could be a short tenure in the NBA.
