I'm sure it's nearly unanimous that we all believe Brad Stevens is an elite coach. The divide in opinion really boils down to people's perceived value of NBA coaches in general. The classic argument is that talent wins out over coaching by a significant margin. This leaves me with two questions for everyone.1. Assuming Brad was given the 2017 off-season and training camp to prepare, where do the remaining playoff teams in both Conferences finish during the regular season with him as their coach? For example, does a team like OKC play to their potential and finish as a top 3 team in the West? Let's leave Golden State, Houston, and Cleveland out of the argument.2. Does Brad have the same impact on team chemistry in an organization without Danny as a GM? Brad has always had the luxury of coaching a combination of underdogs, castoffs, or top draft picks with excellent character and work ethic. Danny and Brad have stayed clear of Superstars who cause drama on and off the court. Would Brad be able to manage stubborn Superstar personalities on other teams?
