Brad Stevens considering change in Celtics' starting lineup vs. Sixers

Brad Stevens seems beloved by his players at least

Despite everything which he has gone through this year with the Boston Celtics, Brad Stevens has still managed to guide the team to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second year in a row.

Stevens can still take home the Red Auerbach Trophy for Coach of the Year, which is awarded based off a media vote compared to the NBCA vote that is done by the 30 National Basketball Association coaches.

But, the criminal part of the NBCA's Coach of the Year award isn't that Casey won it, it's that Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens apparently wasn't even considered.

Though several of Stevens' former players, including Evan Turner and Isaiah Thomas, were outraged on Stevens' behalf, the coach himself was unsurprisingly short on outrage.

Although Casey came out as the clear victor according to his peers, his job is still in hot water after his Raptors got humiliated at the hands of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who swept Toronto in 4 games in the East semis. "Those guys know how much I appreciate and like them and enjoy our times together". He should have got a vote. "He should have gotten a vote", Brown said when asked. I'm thrilled that Casey got recognized.

Philadelphia's Brown was surprised when told that Stevens was blanked in the voting.

"I think you know me well enough that [awards] stuff just doesn't [matter]", Stevens said.

"I don't think that I would ever define anybody in the coaching or playing shoes probably as comfortable", he said.

He hold the four of them he loved Boston for its "extensive basketball history" and voiced confidence he could be a difference-maker for the team. They're long and they're physical.

Keep in mind, too, that Brad did all this after forging a workable relationship with the notoriously prickly Rajon Rondo during the coach's first season-and-a-half on the job in Beantown.
