Stevens says praise he has received for Celtics' success is 'silly'

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens

Yet, he isn't being recognised for his achievements, and this has annoyed one of his former players in Isaiah Thomas. Boston is three wins away from the NBA Finals, which is much further than anybody could've reasonably expected when the postseason started.

"They're both great coaches".

Stevens also briefly commented on the firing on Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey.

These coaches include Philadelphia's Brett Brown, Houston's Mike D'Antoni, Indiana's Nate McMillan, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, LA Clippers' Doc Rivers, Utah's Quin Snyder and Portland's Terry Stotts. Much credit has been given to Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "No disrespect to the other head coaches but He's by far the best coach in the National Basketball Association".

She said, "I have always been a part of action-centric movies, but this is the first time I have gone all out". Recent reports also suggest about a meeting that was held at Salman Khan's residence before the film.

Parish would be happy to know that Stevens has repeatedly downplayed any talk of his coaching 'genius, ' and did so again when asked about it during Monday's media availability at the C's practice facility in Waltham. And those other guys that get votes, they're unbelievable.

"And the guy that should have won got it".

"It's silly. The praise is uncomfortable, and it's just something that these guys should be getting it all", Stevens said. And I think it's a lot more important to just focus on competing with your team rather than trying to compare yourself to others. "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 still learning from Brad a lot".

The Celtics had the best record in the Eastern Conference (53-29) last season, and they won two more games in 2017-18 despite missing Gordon Hayward for basically the entire year and seeing Kyrie Irving miss 22 games.
