Brad Stevens entered the NBA with as much hype as any coach I’ve ever seen and eventually has given a roster of seven lottery picks to use at his disposal to bring back respectability to the Boston Celtics franchise. With the current loss to the Miami Heat that is now four trips to the Conference Finals with not one opportunity to win a title.
I’ve been asked why do I call Brad Stevens the boy genius and it’s real simple. At every turn when the rumors were rampant that he was going to make the jump from Butler to the Celtics, everyone that had a blue check, everyone that was deemed credible said this is a lay up move. This is going to be fantastic. The Celtics hit a home run. They got a young coach that’s going to be there fifteen, twenty years. You’re going to win multiple championships. They were just handing Larry O. B’s to the Celtics front office. It was a done deal.”On the hype surround Celtics coach Brad Stevens aka Boy Genius

Everyone was supposed to go to Boston. Everyone’s been rumored to go to Boston because everyones like why not? Why not Boston? It’s such a great franchise, such a great history, such a great tradition. Yeah…for the media and the fans. Players…not so much and that’s not a secret but when you have overwhelmingly white media pushing white narratives devoid of context from the actual players, athletes who are black. That’s why you get this. When every time there’s a star and the Celtics have salary cap space it’s almost a foregone conclusion or if they have an abundance of first round picks it’s a foregone conclusion that the mass media is going to put the Celtics in the rumors. It’s just a natural destination with no real meritOn the misconception that Boston is a favored landing spot for premier players
