Brad Stevens clinches first winning season in Boston but still wants more
Brad Stevens, Celtics' head coach, Boston savior, and future US President (you can get your t-shirts here), has officially clinched his first winning season with the C's. Three seasons into his tenure with Boston, Stevens progressed from 25 wins in his first campaign to 40 last year, to at least 42 now. The best part? His quote when asked about it:
The Celtics who obviously hold 17 banners have had unprecedented success in their storied history, and most of their success came after seasons of winning at least 50 games. While it's a great accomplishment for the young coach, he's more excited about where his team is headed:How does Brad feel about clinching a winning record? "You don’t sign up for the Boston Celtics to win 42 games. We’ve got a long way to go."— Darren Hartwell (@darren_hartwell) March 24, 2016
Stevens has earned the respect of his peers and players around the Association, including San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, Washington Wizards PG John Wall, and most importantly the Celtics organization. C's GM Danny Ainge has placed a lot of trust in Stevens, and it's already starting to pay off.Brad Stevens on the Cs clinching his first winning season: "I feel like there's real progress, and it's been pretty consistent progress."— Jay King (@ByJayKing) March 24, 2016
