Brad Stevens the Anti-Alford

Darren McCollester

Whereas Steve "TRA" Alford has turned sticking his foot into his mouth into an art form during his first few months on the job, Brad Stevens, the guy that rejected Chianti Dan Guerrero's incompetence, ineptitude, and stupidity is pushing all the right buttons in Boston as the new Celtics head coach.

From Masslive:

He hit a home run at his introductory press conference, patched together a talented staff mixed with experience and familiarity, and visited Rajon Rondo at the point guard's camp to start building a relationship.

Stevens has discussed how much he needs to learn, explained how he plans to build a system (based on his players strengths, which he'll determine by crunching numbers and studying hours and hours of film) and revealed that forming bonds with people in the organization will remain a primary focus. He hasn't really said a single wrong word yet. No controversy and no missteps (at least not before he's coached a single game).

Compare that to Mr. I was following orders when I defended a rapist, and the contrast is jarring. And that was before this:

So while we watch TRA bumble and stumble his way from coast to coast and continuously strike out on the recruiting trail, all we can do is think of what might have been had we had an AD that knew how to bring in an actual big name coach that is not only not afraid of a challenge but clearly appreciates tradition.

FYI - Guys, do we have any tradition?
