Robert Parish: Celtics HC Brad Stevens 'Getting a Little Too Much Praise'

Brad Stevens 'Uncomfortable' With All The Praise For Celtics Success

According to a Boston.com report, Casey was one of eight coaches around the league that were nominated.

The Celtics booked their spot in the Conference Finals last night with a series-clinching win over the Philadelphia 76ers despite having some of their key players in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on the sidelines.

Informed that Stevens hadn't received a vote, former Celtics swingman Evan Turner tweeted, "That's insane. only in America!"

He took a group of young players, gave them the confidence as injuries happened and players have stepped up when called upon by Stevens. "He's gotten the most out of everybody he's put in the position since he's gotten to Boston, pretty much". "Those are the guys in the locker room you're spending all that time with". "(Isaiah and Evan) know how much I appreciate and like them and enjoyed our times together so that means a lot".

And as far as the actual process?

"The one thing he wouldn't do going forward was try to lose a game, or you know, 'tank, '" Pagliuca said via Yang. "And I'm telling you, I looked at the sheet and there's no way that I would have voted for me over any of the other 29 people", Stevens said. The guy that should have won got it.

ZTE suspends smartphone sales, after-sale services to comply with U.S. ban
According to reports , workers at the company's headquarters in Shenzhen are reporting to work but "with not much to do ". The ban came as huge blow to the company, seeing that 25 to 30 percent of its components came from companies in the U.S.

Stevens, Barkley added, deserved praise for not being afraid of introducing young players into the team and trusting them even in the cauldron that is the National Basketball Association postseason. You can not tell if the Celtics are up 20, down 20 or it is a one point game as Brad Stevens expression hardly ever changes as he watches the game with his arms folded.

It will be interesting to see who wins the NBA Coach of the Year Media award as the media has no reason to be JEALOUS of Brad Smith, who is a better human being then he is a coach and certainly from this column's corner that he is now the best Coach in the NBA, let alone the 2018 NBA Coach of the Year.

The Boston Celtics have repeatedly defied the odds during the season and Charles Barkley simply can not believe how far they have come. However, not getting a single vote for those efforts is laughable.

Sixers coach Brett Brown was surprised Stevens get a vote either. He should have got a vote.

"From our standpoint, I feel like it's been a lot of fun", he said. He would get a vote from me.
