This Coach of the Year Award is separate from the Red Auerbach Coach of the Year Award, which is voted on by the media.

The bias displayed by the coaches indicate some pettiness to Brad Stevens for overachieving.

"You realize that if you're going to break records here, you're probably going to break bad ones", he recently said. After all, his team is four wins away from the NBA Finals despite dealing with injuries to both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

After the head coach spot became vacant after the 2013 season, Ainge, Pagliuca, along with assistant general manager Mike Zarren and team co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, went to IN to visit Stevens at his home.

He is looking for basketball players who rely on their basketball skills not their athleticism which means that they are usually more coachable, will be willing to learn his system which requires high basketball IQ potential so as to play the team game from the shoulders up and not from the shoulders down like most athletic players relying on their athleticism which leads to good making basketball decisions of good shot selection, reduced turnovers, fewer player control and defensive fouls.

Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey won the award, as voted by the league's 30 coaches.

Stevens himself, however, wasn't too bothered by the fact he wasn't considered for the Coach of the Year award. He said that he thought Casey deserved the honor and didn't expect him to be without a job for long.

In his 5 years as the Celtics coach he has never won a National Basketball Association coach of the year award even though he turned the franchise around in just his second season. Toronto was also swept out of the playoffs by Cleveland last season. Numerous guys who got votes are indeed credible candidates, but it's hard to argue that Rivers, whose Clippers went 42-40 and missed the playoffs, had a better season than Stevens, whose injury-plagued Celtics went 55-27 and finished second in the Eastern Conference.

Stevens agrees with that assessment and has remained true to his style by blending into the background in public, instead waiting for the huddle or practice to make his voice heard.

Stevens was asked about receiving support from two former players. I really think he's incredibly deserving. It's just that LeBron James stands in their way in the playoffs, and they predictably melt.

From Stevens' ability to draw up plays out of timeouts, to his management of late-clock situations, to getting the best out of his roster, James has always been a fan. Brad Stevens of the Celtics did not receive one single vote from the 29 other coaches and only 8 coaches received votes.
