Which version of Brad Stevens has been a better fit for the Boston Celtics? The man on the sidelines with a clipboard? Or the version serving currently as the team’s President of Basketball Operations? While this is in no way supposed to be a shot at the Indiana native’s coaching chops, a growing chorus of support for the job Stevens has done as the team’s chief executive has many wondering if this move was truly the place he fits best in the organization.
By most accounts, a series of cascading missteps by outgoing team president Danny Ainge had left the franchise he’d built into a perennial contender for more than half a decade something of a mess after nearly climbing that mountain for a second time at the helm of the Celtics.
Stevens managed to cut that Gordian knot in less than two seasons, finishing the job Ainge started and seemingly setting the team up for continued success in their pursuit of an 18th banner.
The hosts of the CLNS Media “A-List” podcast recently debated whether Stevens makes a better coach or exec, but you’ll need to watch the clip above to hear their take on Bargain-hunting Brad.
