Brad Stevens considering change in Celtics' starting lineup vs. Sixers

Associated Press

Casey is also regarded as a top contender for the N.B.A.'s Coach of the Year award and, according to the people with knowledge of the voting for the N.B.C.A. award, was one of just eight coaches to receive votes in the balloting.

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 way that thing works is you get one vote", said Stevens.

This Coach of the Year Award is separate from the Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by the media. "He's gotten the most out of everybody he's put in the position since he's gotten to Boston, pretty much". Stevens talked about the vote ahead of Game 5 against the Sixers, and as one would expect, he wasn't too anxious about it and said Casey deserved to win the award. None of those coaches, however, go by the name Brad Stevens. "And the guy that should have won got it". Zero of the league's 29 other coaches voted for him.

It has been quite some time since Nintendo last discussed its planned online subscription service for the Nintendo Switch . The service makes no mention of a Virtual Console or of classic games from any of Nintendo's other systems.

Informed that Stevens hadn't received a vote, former Celtics swingman Evan Turner tweeted, "That's insane. only in America!" And I think it's a lot more important to just focus on competing with your team rather than trying to compare yourself to others.

He is looking for basketball players who rely on their basketball skills not their athleticism which means that they are usually more coachable, will be willing to learn his system which requires high basketball IQ potential so as to play the team game from the shoulders up and not from the shoulders down like most athletic players relying on their athleticism which leads to good making basketball decisions of good shot selection, reduced turnovers, fewer player control and defensive fouls.

Other coaches who received votes were Philadelphia's Brett Brown, Houston's Mike D'Antoni, Indiana's Nate McMillan, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, the Los Angeles Clippers' Doc Rivers, Utah's Quin Snyder and Portland's Terry Stotts.
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. So while they may believe multiple coaches are worthy, there's only one option.
