LaMelo Ball praises Celtics' Brad Stevens to put down Lithuanian coach

LaMelo Ball praises Celtics' Brad Stevens to put down Lithuanian coach”

The exact reasons behind Stevens' snubbing are unclear, though many speculate that he simply hasn't been in National Basketball Association circles quite long enough to "earn his due" among his peers.

Notice who's missing? That would be Boston Celtics wonder-boy coach Brad Stevens, who many people expect to win the main writer-selected Coach of the Year award. Brown heard that news in Wednesday's pregame press conference, and seemed to agree with the Celtics faithful. Those other guys that got votes, they're unbelievable.

"A good coach pretty much lets you do what you do best, kind of like the Celtics head coach, how he always lets the point guard just run and do what he does", Melo said.

"I would vote for him".

"It's so incredible to have an opportunity to be one of thirty [coaches in the league] 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. Because I'm telling you, if it gets to be a comparison contest, I'm screwed".

Despite these comments, his former star player Isaiah Thomas - now with cross-country blood rival Los Angeles Lakers - expressed his dismay over the voting and his support for his former mentor.

Despite everything which he has gone through this year with the Boston Celtics, Brad Stevens has still managed to guide the team to the Eastern Conference Finals for the second year in a row. "He would get a vote from me", Brown said. He is the Coach of the Year. I think the job he's done with Gordon [Hayward] going out, with Kyrie [Irving] going out. It's a great organization.

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.
