Brad Stevens. I know what you’re thinking – Brad Stevens is the men’s basketball coach at Butler silly girl. Not any more.
As of Friday the Boston Celtics have hired 36-year-old handsome Brad Stevens to replace Doc Rivers (who headed off to LA to man the Clippers) as the Head Coach of their legendary basketball franchise. Stevens has some BIG shoes to fill, but I’m more than happy to see him on more nationally televised games while he earns his NBA street cred.
In his last six seasons Stevens had a 166-49 record with the Butler Bulldogs, but the NBA is a whole different animal than the NCAA. We have to be patient with Stevens as the Celtics are in a “rebuilding” time, but if this dude can get some talent on his roster he will be able to shine in the league.
In a league where we’re not used to seeing eye candy on the coaching staff (sorry Thibs), Stevens is a positive addition for the NBA lady viewers. Sorry Eric Spoelstra, there’s a new young rookie in town and he puts your boyish charms to shame.
