It was a whirlwind offseason that saw former Celtics star Isaiah Thomas abrubtly traded away from Boston to Cleveland against his wishes. Some bad blood ensued between Thomas and the Celtics general manager Danny Ainge but he apparently still has love for Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.
No way in hell Brad Stevens doesn’t win Coach of the year. No disrespect to the other head coaches but He’s by far the best coach in the NBA

Stevens has done an amazing job with a completely transformed team and once again has them on the edge of a return to the Eastern Conference finals despite missing their 2 biggest stars. Stevens was overlooked by the other NBA head coaches as they selected Toronto Raptors Dwayne Casey as coach of the year.
