CelticBlog exit interview: Brad Stevens

For the first time in his NBA coaching career, Brad Stevens entered the 2019-20 season looking for redemption. A coach whose stock had been on an upward trajectory since joining the NBA ranks in 2013, Stevens found himself under a microscope following the Celtics dismal 2018-19 season, where they were unceremoniously dumped out of the playoffs in the second round. It wasn’t just the underwhelming exit, but how the team chemistry never felt right all year.

A summer of turbulence saw Al Horford, Kyrie Irving, Marcus Morris, and Aron Baynes depart.
