Raptors' Dwane Casey Named Coach of the Year by His NBA Peers

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens

You can not tell if the Celtics are up 20, down 20 or it is a one point game as Brad Stevens expression hardly ever changes as he watches the game with his arms folded. In the meantime, does the former Butler man have a point?

Stevens reportedly didn't receive a single vote for the award, while Brett Brown of the 76ers, Mike D'Antoni of the Rockets, Nate McMillan of the Pacers, Gregg Popovich of the Spurs, Quin Snyder of the Jazz, Terry Stotts of the Trail Blazers and Doc Rivers of the Clippers reportedly made up the list of coaches outside of Casey to get some love for the award. "No disrespect to the other head coaches but He's by far the best coach in the National Basketball Association". And he did it even as the Celtics got plagued with key injuries to multiple players like Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown.

Since taking over as Boston's coach in 2013, Stevens has helped the team improve its record each season and has gone 221-189 in the process.

Meanwhile, Stevens and the Celtics are still going strong in the playoffs, after having just set a best-of-7 Eastern Conference Finals matchup with the Cavs.

Walmart (WMT), which also installs tires, tumbled 3.6% after announcing a $16 billion deal to buy 77% of India's Flipkart. Other retailers have been teaming up with Amazon.com Inc., hoping to reach the online retailer's millions of customers.

"I don't think that I would ever define anybody in the coaching or playing shoes probably as comfortable", he said. Numerous guys who got votes are indeed credible candidates, but it's hard to argue that Rivers, whose Clippers went 42-40 and missed the playoffs, had a better season than Stevens, whose injury-plagued Celtics went 55-27 and finished second in the Eastern Conference. I think it's a lot more important to focus on competing with your team rather than trying to compare yourself to others.

"From our standpoint, I feel like it's been a lot of fun", he said.

He hold the four of them he loved Boston for its "extensive basketball history" and voiced confidence he could be a difference-maker for the team.
