    Re: Brad Stevens leaves Butler for Celtics

    Very interesting move but everyone I know said he was better suited for the NBA in the long term

    Re: Brad Stevens leaves Butler for Celtics

    Me either. Pretty shocking. By far my two favorite coaches besides Iowa State's of course, are Stevens and Shaka Smart. I think they are both great coaches and their teams are easy to route for. And I've loved that both stayed at their mid-major school.

    But I had never heard that Stevens was interested in the NBA. I don't know that I had seen his name mentioned, but I don't follow it that close. It will be interesting to see how he transitioned from the mid-major coaching to NBA. He has the right temperament for it.

    Yet another young coach jumps at the chance to coach in the NBA, where he will be promptly chewed up and swallowed.

    Yeah, but Stevens will land just fine if he fails.

    Big Lick back to Butler?

    Just goes to show what a long-term contract is worth when the NBA comes calling...

    This helps us with Macura? Is that correct?

    Hope he gets enough money to make him happy because I predict he will spend the rest of his life wishing that he was back coaching Butler.

    Re: Brad Stevens leaves Butler for Celtics

    There is literally zero downside to this for Stevens. If he fails, he can still get any coaching job in America if he wants to coach in college again.

    Was thinking the same thing. At least it can't hurt. Best of luck to Stevens - I hope he succeeds.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    I don't know. He seems like the kind of coach that might be able to be successful in the NBA. Calm personality kind of a metrics type of guy.
