To me, this means the Celtics are all in with this guy, giving him six years to earn his stripes. The first few years we know will be rough, but in years 3-6 if he can get the players, this may be legit. I really think this kid can coach. I’m drinking the syrup, you should too.
Talk about making a splash, the Boston Celtics are making the young coach from Butler their next head coach. If this is the case, and I’m banking on my people, this is a pretty awesome hire. Young, successful and legit, I think we have just seen Danny Ainge do it again. More to come as we hear more, but I’ll take this hire in a minute.
