While the Celtics are in the middle of the doldrums of their offseason their New England sports counterparts to the South, the Patriots, are in the thick of their training camp, with the regular season just around the corner. Brad Stevens joined Patriots practice on Saturday, perhaps for a little insight on how the Patriots prepare for another NFL campaign:

Stevens got a chance to chat with coach Bill Belichick on the sideline. Belichick is a regular at the TD Garden for Celtics games, and he's said before he's got a ton of respect for Brad and the way he coaches.

Stevens has visited Patriots practices before and gushed about what he's been able to learn from watching the well-oiled machine championship team as they prepare. Via Darren Hartwell of NESN:

“Coach Belichick, his staff, Josh McDaniels and the people I’ve gotten to know pretty well over there are great resources for me,” Stevens said at the time, “because I think that they have a great idea about running a championship organization every minute of every day. … “The tempo with which they operated, how much they got done, how little time they had to do it — just impressive.”

For the coach of a team on the cusp of championship contention, with perhaps an opportunity to be good for long time, it's probably a good idea to be taking a look at a franchise that has had some great success and been able to sustain that success for an extended period of time.
