Coaching Rumors

Brad Stevens hasn’t narrowed down a list of finalists for his replacement yet, but some fans have offered him some advice. A new billboard — paid for by Six Star Pro Nutrition — was placed near the Celtics’ practice facility and calls for Stevens, Boston’s new president of basketball operations, to hire a female coach, either Kara Lawson or Becky Hammon, after Stevens was promoted to replace Danny Ainge. “Hey Brad, it’s time to shake it up,” the billboard reads. “Hire Kara or Becky!”
Who is he? A Serbian basketball legend. He won three Adriatic League MVPs in his playing days back in the early 2000s as an old-school power forward.
