Brad Stevens has been pretty vocal in the last few weeks. I don’t think that’s by chance, either–training camp is right around the corner. We hadn’t heard too much from Stevens after his hire, but in recent weeks he’s had sit downs and has also given the media plenty of juicy quotes on Rajon Rondo.
Now, Stevens sits down with CSN New England, again, and discusses the upcoming season and what his personal expectations are for the Boston Celtics this season. He sat down with Kyle Draper of “Sports NetCentral” and opened up about things. Among the bevy of different topics were the Celtics offense, the rivalries with the Miami Heat and New York Knicks, Rajon Rondo’s health, and plenty of others.
Here’s the video below:
Stevens really seems to have his head on straight. He’s coming into this coaching job with an open mind and a certain respect for, not only the Celtics organization, but for the entire NBA. Stevens seems to be taking this all in stride and preparing for the 2013-14 campaign with the Boston Celtics. As a head coach, there’s nothing better you can do at this point.
Stevens doesn’t need to be looking forward to Rondo’s return, the playoffs, the NBA draft or anything past training camp right now. He just needs to get his guys together and help them progress into what can, hopefully, be a very good team someday. I love what Stevens is doing and this continues to look like a great hire by the Celtics.
