Brad Stevens Wouldn't Vote for Himself for COY

Brad Stevens seems beloved by his players at least

So special, in fact, the Boston Celtics owner referred to Stevens as the best coach in college basketball in 2010 to co-owner Steve Pagliuca, per Boston.com's Nicole Yang.

Casey was awarded the distinction by his fellow coaches after steering the Raptors to a franchise-best 59-23 record, good for first seed in the East.

The Coach of the Year award will be handed out at the 2018 NBA Awards show on June 25 at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

This has probably rankled numerous other 29 coaches, owners, players and general managers as a lot of them believe the way to coach a National Basketball Association franchise is the way it has been done for years and that the college way Stevens coached at Butler would never work successfully in the National Basketball Association. "Obviously, you know what I've said about Brad Stevens before and his ability to get the most out of his guys". Much credit has been given to Celtics coach Brad Stevens. "And the guy that should have won got it".

Not that this is anything new in the NBA, however, since George Karl got fired as the Denver Nuggets head coach just 29 days after winning the more prestigious NBA Coach of the Year trophy back in 2013.

Aside from Casey, the others receiving votes: Brett Brown, Mike D'Antoni, Nate McMillan, Gregg Popovich, Doc Rivers, Quin Snyder and Terry Stotts.

"I think it's been a little overblown this year because of the names that's been out, obviously, with Kyrie and Gordon and the injuries with those two big guys", James said.

"Every time they show Brad Stevens on the sideline you can't tell whether his team is winning or losing". I think it's a lot more important to focus on competing with your team rather than trying to compare yourself to others.

Former Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas took to Twitter to support Stevens. So while they may believe multiple coaches are worthy, there's only one option.
