Doc has nothing put praise for coach Stevens

In case you've been living under a rock you know that Doc Rivers made his first coaching return to Boston on Wednesday night. The night was all about Rivers and his time with the Celtics, but lets not forget about Brad Stevens.

Doc actually found Stevens after the game to compliment him on the job he has done:

Nice to see from Doc. He is still a classy guy despite taking a while to admit he left Boston on his own terms. Not many NBA teams have a first round pick to show for their coach leaving town though. One of many picks that will be used to create the Brad Stevens era in Boston… maybe the next video montage will be for Stevens.
