Brad Stevens says all the right things (and more) about the Celtics and their future
Immediately after the Celtics were eliminated from the postseason by Cleveland last Sunday, Brad Stevens didn't talk about how proud he was of his team for what it accomplished this season. Stevens didn't discuss the enormous gap in talent level between his club and the Cavs. He didn't say things like "Hey, this squad had no expectations for this year, just getting to the playoffs is a success."
No, instead Stevens was focused on how his guys could've been even better, and what they can do to improve going forward:
Stevens said he told the Celtics he was pleased with what they accomplished. But "we didn't come to the Boston Celtics for a quick exit."
