    Why Brad Stevens?

    He's not the right coach for this team. He wants the players to excel. We need a coach who will maximize the losing. If the argument is to win long-term, very few college coaches have succeeded at the professional level. The only obvious exception is Larry Brown, and he quickly wore out his welcome at each one of his two dozen posts. The new trend is toward recently retired players with no prior head coaching experience. How about Antoine Walker? He was a decent player, he won a ring, he knows how to motivate, he loves Boston. Other fan favorites are Walter McCarty and Brian Scalabrine. Wouldn't the Celtics have been better off with a random head coach for a couple years, and then once they were serious about competing pursue a bigger name?

    Celts will not do that.

    Maximizing losing is not good for business.

     

    The only reason the Celts won 25 games last season was because of guys like Bass and Hump.

    Celts would have lost at least 5 more games if they didn't have Hump and Bass.

     

    The tanking we want is playing the young guys.

    In the NBA, you will not win a lot of games if you have inexperienced players.

     

    Ainge hiring Brad Stevens was the right move.

    The next step is finding players who will become future stars.

    Agree but, if they are in Tank mode again this year then Rondo will need to go.

    Yes, but from what we're witnessing right now, I won't be surprised if Ainge trades Rondo at the trade deadline.


    Ainge is still hoping to get Kevin Love.

    Without Love and Rondo, you don't need to worry we will stink it up real good.

    To answer your question...

    Big name college coach good for PR.

    That's what the Celtics are all about.

    Green runs deep.

    ...the King of the Rumba Beat...

    ARE YOU NUTS ?

    STEVENS IS  THE PERFECT COACH FOR THIS TEAM

    When Greg Popovich says he likes your style and gives a rookie head coach praise, I think thats a pretty good sign, so glad we're not having to endure the Rick Adelman era as Celtics fans (retread coach) and as great as Larry Brown is, he is too old.

    Brad Stevens was a brilliant signing, imo. He is still learning, along with the young guys. They grow together, and as Fierce said, need to find and develop the right players into stars.
