You mentioned taking notes. I heard from someone that when you’re on the team plane, you sit and watch film and scribble notes on a pad with (assistant coach) Sean Sweeney. That’s how you spend your time in the air. Is that true? Isaiah Stewart: Oh, yeah. We’d watch every game and take notes. We’d do that on the plane. If we played at home, I’d come in the next morning and re-watch the game.
Rookie big man Isaiah Stewart already had created his calling card with hustle, rebounding, defense and a scrappy demeanor early in the season. Still, it came as a surprise to Stewart when they played the Los Angeles Lakers that LeBron James already knew about him too. “He knows the game so well that as I’m checking into the game, he’s listing everything I do to his teammates out loud: ‘Rook coming in. He runs hard, runs the floor, high energy, strong. Watch out for this; watch out for that,’” Stewart told reporters in Rochester, New York, including Dan Fetes of 13WHAM. “He’s listing out what I do as I’m checking into the game. That was pretty crazy.”
Stewart has had a year worthy of a selection on one of the All-Rookie teams, because the numbers themselves don’t tell the full story. “All those little things from the rookies and making the advance and steps that they made in the rookie year would be the highlight for me as a coach,” Casey said. “It’s hard for young players to win in this league because of the savvy and the experience the players have on other teams. I think that’s why we didn’t win as many games, but the plus is that it will pay great dividends down the road.”
