So much for Tommy Heinsohn’s green glasses. He voted Budenholzer as Coach of Year & Stevens 2nd. (Tommy did vote Isaiah Thomas for 6th Man.)
Only two Celtics coaches have won the Red Auerbach Trophy since it was re-named the Red Auerbach Trophy: Bill Fitch and Tommy Heinsohn.

Come stai "👍"?
"Getting there" requires you first to "get in". Get in the fight. Get in the hours. Get in the work. Get in the study. Get in the mindset!
Next stop on the first round tour: Houston
Celtics escape Ed Malloy again tonight, but will deal with Danny Crawford, Marc Davis and 65-year-old Bennett Salvatore in Game 2.
How rare was the Celtics 13-point loss in Game One? It was just their 3rd since mid-January, elite company. http://t.co/IvO7WTZwgw
The Pels thing all year has been to play really well in games where no one gives them a chance.
Would have liked to have seen the introductions.
Nobody curses like a baseball manager.
Kelly O. might be outplaying Giannis so far in the playoffs, so it looks like that debate is finally settled.
If you're in Cleveland thinking about buying a white t-shirt tomorrow, don't do it! Just come to Game 2. http://t.co/qYiZ00C063
per Adam Zagoria: Kevin Ollie being 'strongly considered' for OKC. KO makes more as UConn coach than all but 2 NBA years -with longer term.
LeBron on chances a big man wins Sixth Man award: "Probably just as difficult as for a wing player to win defensive player of the year."
Williams won Sixth Man Award handily, but notable that Isaiah Thomas wasn't on Cedric Maxwell's ballot. (Crawford, Williams, Brooks)
"The most dangerous animal in the world, responsible of MILLIONS deaths every year. Behind him you can see a shark" http://t.co/mqafowqWTR
For everyone who might be missing the good old days of field house style basketball environments - we still have Division II ball. Fun.
Except for assists and turnovers, the numbers between Isaiah Thomas and Lou Williams were pretty darn close: http://t.co/5U5ZVq7J3R
Evan Turner asked about LeBron’s presence. Notes he went to Ohio State, jokes: “When I walk the streets, it’s like, 'The king came home!’”
Brad Stevens on 6th man vote: "Lou Williams is a very deserving candidate, but Isaiah would have been my vote."
Isaiah Thomas on 6th man vote: "Congrats to Lou Will… All I’m going to say is numbers don’t lie. Congrats to him, he deserves it."
Thomas shrugs off not getting sixth man award, but did say this. "Numbers don't lie."
Thomas on Cavs keying in on him: "I've just got to find the open guy and make the right play. It's never gonna be just one-on-one for me."
Lou Williams' team won 49 games..but so did Isaiah Thomas'... Suns/Celtics with Isaiah Thomas: 49-35 Suns/Celtics no Isaiah Thomas : 30-50
Isaiah Thomas said Lou Williams deserved Sixth Man. Seems to think he was deserving too, "numbers don't lie."
Turner on Thomas missing 6th Man Award: "He played great for us. If we had finished higher in the standings he probably would have got it."
Turner on playing vs. LeBron: "The tough thing is to gauge how (refs) are calling it. You have to make him tired and make him defend."
Bradley: "I'm very eager to get back out there. I'm just happy I get another chance to go out & compete again." http://t.co/81Qj0J5KJp
Stevens on outlook for Game 2: "I'm encouraged by the guys in this room. They respond well and they're able to change on the fly."
Stevens on Thomas: "They're gonna pay him a lot of attention. Whether he scores 20 or he scores 5, the hope is to get our team good shots."
Stevens on what the team saw on film today: "Some good things, some things that we've got to shore up. We have to use depth as advantage."
Wanted to see Isaiah win, but will settle on seeing him play Game 2 w/that "I'll show you the 6th Man" chip on his shoulders.
Isaiah Thomas was on only 100 of 130 ballots. A look at the full voting. http://t.co/9VBSEMbpnX
Lou Williams named sixth man of year. Thomas seems to have been hurt by the trade, playing on less regarded teams.
Glance at Williams/Thomas voting in 6th man. http://t.co/IC3EnYgNN0
Isaiah Thomas finished second in the voting.
Lou Williams wins 6th man award. Isaiah Thomas finishes second.
Lou Williams -- not Isaiah Thomas -- has been named the Sixth Man of the Year.
Celtics-Cavaliers did a 4.5 rating on ABC Sunday, 4th highest first round game ever. Brad Stevens = Electricity = Ratings
The day after game 1, they are still cleaning up confetti at the Q. http://t.co/cwt9pSewO8
