Stevens focused on Celtics wins, not chances of coaching All-Star Game

Stevens focused on Celtics wins, not chances of coaching All-Star Game

A victory for the Boston Celtics tonight would bump them up to being the second-best team in the East.

While that has very little value now, it would be a pretty big deal if the Celtics maintained that spot going into next month’s All-Star game in which the East would be coached by Boston’s Brad Stevens.

Cleveland will likely have the best record in the East, but Cavs head coach and former Celtics assistant coach Tyronn Lue coached the East All-Stars last season and league rules prevent coaches from leading teams in consecutive years.

Needless to say, Stevens hasn’t given any thought about having himself and his staff coach the Eastern Conference All-Star team next month in New Orleans.

“I don’t want this to come off wrong, because I think it’s most important … that’s a real honor to be part of a team to be in position to do that,” Stevens told reporters prior to tonight’s game. “If you’re in the top couple in either division, that’s a real good thing.

Stevens added, “otherwise, I could care less.”

Watch Danny Ainge's son posterize him

Danny Ainge's vertical doesn't appear to be what it once was. Crew Ainge, Danny's son, got the better of his pops.

The youngest Ainge child posterized his father in some driveway basketball.

"Baptism from my freshly returned missionary @UncleCR3W #drivebydunkchallenge," the Boston Celtics general manager wrote Sunday.

One of Ainge's former players, Evan Turner appreciated the video, and began petitioning for the clip to start trending.
