    He’s known for doing more with less, but Boston is absolutely depleted at present. Big name franchise, but tough time to take it over.

    in the long run this is a great move by stevens, it allows him to get a pile of cash and if he succeeds , great, if not, then there is absolutely no issue with him “leaving a little school”

    this sets the timeline for Cal’s replacement = it will be when Stevens contract is up

    This is great! Gives him the experience he needs in dealing with the NBA system and its players. When Cal retires … Stevens will be ready to take over … Cause he’s flaming out in Boston.

    Wow! Good luck to him. Cal was 37 when he got the Nets job. Hope the NBA doesn’t chew him up and spit him out like it did Cal (who actually fared much better than given credit for with the Nets).

    NBA, heck – RONDO will chew him up and spit him out…..

    I wish people would quit mentioning Brad Stevens name with UK, he will never coach at UK! The next coach at UK will be Coach O! Stevens will end up fired at Boston just like Pitino!

    Funny, in Feb of 2012 all UL fans I know wanted to fire Pitino and hire Stevens.

    Stevens is a good coach, but not an NBA coach especially in a crazy sports/media town like Boston. More like who is going to coach UL once Pitino has been rolled out.

    9 – Only if Coach O has great success at at least 1 if not 2 D1 schools as a head coach first.

    To the Stevens point, I’d say if there’s a young NBA coach who could be next in line at UK it’d be Vogel since he’s a UK guy and currently doing big things with the Pacers.

    I guess this is a good move. He will a pile of money for the couple seasons he will probably be there and have a ton of major colleges fighting for him if he should get fired.

    I hope he makes it but he seems way too soft to handle a bunch of pro’s. We’ll see?

    This deal is going to make him a lot of money in the long run. Like #14 said, he will have a high dollar back up plan in the college ranks if he fails at Boston.



  16. WOW!

    If Doc Rivers and Rondo had ‘philisophical difference,’ the upcoming disaster in Boston will be epic.

    I don’t think the Boston management wants him to have a good first year. They’re getting rid of 2 of their 3 best players (Garnett and Pierce) so that they tank next year. It’s a gamble they’re will to take because they want to win the Andrew Wiggins lottery. THEN, starting with Stevens’ second season they want to start rebuilding with a Rondo-Wiggins backcourt. They’ll have plenty of money to buy a couple top free agents by then. That’s the plan.

    Mick Cronin to Butler. It’s his way to get back into the Big East.

    4, 5- I agree with him being Cal’s replacement in six years or so (whenever Cal retires). I don’t know how long Stevens’ contract is at Boston, but a fired coach won’t be given six years. If he’s still at Boston after six years, he’ll be doing too well to leave the NBA. By the time Cal retires, I expect Stevens to either be on his second NBA job (being mediocre and welcoming a return to NCAA), or being successful in the NBA with no intentions of returning.

    Stevens will be at Boston then leave, and go coach Butler’s rival and then get jiggy with it in an Italian restaurant and then oh wait a minute . . .

    Look I want Cal to be here as long as possible. But that fateful day when Cal does retire, the first phone call should be to Shaka Smart.

    I have no idea what makes a good NBA coach. Being a great college coach doesn’t seem to translate to the pros. Plus Stevens has NO pro experience. He’s lucky just to be a Division 1 coach. Being able to get a bunch of unknowns to the final four is not the same as getting a bunch of top tier professionals into the playoffs. My bet is that it won’t work but I will cheer for the Celtics AND coach Stevens.

    Mrs. TT…I don’t know who coaches the Pukies next , but I will bet you they won’t have a black head coach..

    Wow, quite a jump. Be interesting to see how his way of coaching translates to the NBA. Let’s see if he’s a success or if he comes back to the college ranks and takes over at Xavier in a few years or something.
