→ Rewards outweigh the risks for Brad Stevens in taking the Celtics gig

If it inspires skepticism that so many college coaches have flamed out so spectacularly in the NBA, there’s reason to believe Stevens can be the exception to the rule. His calm yet competitive disposition is a good fit for the NBA, as is his well-chronicled enthusiasm for analytics and a coaching style that relies more on Xs and Os substance than rah-rah speeches and recruiting pitches.

I think he is going to be a great NBA coach.
