My Hoops-Nation Article about Brad Stevens

Posted by shawn cassidy on September 24, 2013 at 4:20 PM


I was asked to write about the Celtics for Hoops-Nation. The first article I wrote for them was about Brad Stevens. Please go over there and check it out.



What Will Brad Stevens Bring to the Boston Celtics?

"When the Boston Celtics announced that Brad Stevens would be their next head coach, it was a complete shock for so many fans, writers, and maybe even other head coaches who wanted a gig in the NBA. Since the Celtics have hired the former Butler head coach, he’s been embraced by fans, local writers, and more importantly his players.

Brad Stevens is the NBA’s youngest head coach at the age of 36. In Brad Stevens, the Celtics have an extremely intelligent coach. Some believe that Danny Ainge is taking a bit of a risk here, but it seems like a risk that will pay off in time. The transition from Doc Rivers to Brad Stevens was kind of an odd one. Fans felt betrayed after Doc’s departure, and when the young genius head coach from college hoops was announced, it was love a first sight for a lot of fans and writers. He was a fresh voice, a new vision."

Analytics are fine, but how is the man's vision for the game?

People think I hate analytics. I don't. I TAKE THEM FOR GRANTED. Of course in this technotronic age there are advanced analytics for everything. I still want to know more about the creative mind, and how one sees the game.
