Brad Stevens and Danny Ainge both got contract extensions today and I could not be any happier. The details of the extensions haven’t been released yet, but just knowing they’ll both be around for a little longer gets me going. They’re both geniuses. Trader Danny has been making stellar draft picks and signing fantastic coaches (e.i. Doc Rivers and Brad Stevens) for years now. He drafted Rajon Rondo with the 21st pick in the first round. That’s an absolute steal. And obviously, lets not forget he put together the big 3 by trading for Ray Allen and KG. He’s been straight wheeling and dealing for draft picks too. Enough to get us the 3rd overall pick, Dallas’ first round pick and the first pick in the second round from Philly. In this draft class, we should be able to get a pretty good haul. Now on to Brad Stevens, the guy’s a babyfaced genius. The things he’s been able to do with this team in the short amount of time he’s been here is wild. He brought a team that is supposed to be rebuilding to the playoffs 2 outta the 3 years he’s been here. I honestly believe he’s a much better coach than Doc was. Doc had a much better team around him and everyone said that KG pretty much did all the coaching, which might explain why the Clippers haven’t really done anything, but that’s none of my business.
Last little tidbit of Celtics news: Kevin Durant’s agent sent the Celtos a list of player that KD wants to play with. Now I’m trying my best not to get too excited here because I’ve had my heart broken before (Kevin Love), but when I heard this news my stomach filled with butterflies and my heart fluttered. I need Kevin Durant, we all need Kevin Durant. So here’s a quick message to you Kevin, Elton John said it best: “Don’t go breaking my heart.”
