LeBron over Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals
The undermanned Celtics eliminated ‘The Process’ in their second round series and are set to face LeBron in the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals. Colin thinks Brad Stevens is the best coach in basketball, but ultimately thinks LeBron’s playoff experience will be too much for the Celtics young core to handle.
He’ll take the Cavs in 6. He also predicts they’ll get boatraced in the Finals by the Warriors.
Brad Stevens getting shutout for Coach of the Year is outrageous
Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has remarkably led Boston to the Eastern Conference Finals without his two best players, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, but didn’t receive a single vote from fellow NBA coaches for Coach of the Year.
Colin has repeatedly said that Stevens is the best coach in the NBA, and thinks that he was shutout is outrageous. He theorizes that coaches avoided voting for Stevens because they feel threatened by him and fear that if he won the award more organizations would look for ‘the next Brad Stevens’ to replace them.
