Boston Celtics: Brad Stevens 'uncomfortable' with recent praise

Boston Celtics: Brad Stevens 'uncomfortable' with recent praise

"I don't think anybody knew what the value of those picks was going to be", Stevens said.

Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens is uncomfortable with all the praise he's received for Boston's success.

The Celtics, despite losing a pair of all-stars during the regular season, are up 1-0 on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. The players certainly deserve their share of love, which occasionally gets lost in all of that admiration for Stevens. Their success in the playoffs and throughout the postseason has earned Stevens adoration from just about everywhere, which will rocket into a different stratosphere if he can get the Celtics to the NBA Finals without the services of Kyrie Irving or Gordon Hayward. "To be honest with you, we have to play well".

Stevens might not accept the recognition until he wins the Celtics an National Basketball Association title, but he deserves the credit now as Boston has improved their win total in each season under him despite the unforeseen circumstances with the roster due to injury. With another postseason victory, he'd set a new career high for postseason wins, this after leading Boston to the East finals last season.

"I don't want to talk about it", the Celtics coach said at the morning shootaround. There's definitely a similarity between them. "There are some comparisons but in a lot of ways they are their own coach, and I'm just lucky to be able to learn from both of them and [I'm] still learning from Brad a lot". There's a reason why you get home court advantage if you have a better record throughout the year because there is the idea that if you get to sleep in your own bed, play in front of your home crowd, than that's a good thing. Former Celtics big man Robert Parish, however, is not one to jump fully into the Stevens bandwagon. "They're giving him all the love like he's won three or four championships". It seems that the coach is still getting used to all of the attention.

Later Parish added, "That don't mean that you're not great or good just because you never won a championship".
