Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens is uncomfortable with all the praise he’s received for Boston’s success. In an injury-riddled season in which the Celtics lost two All-Stars in Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, Stevens guided Boston to 55 wins and has them back in the Eastern Conference finals where the Celtics own a 1-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Asked about the praise he’s received for Boston’s success, Stevens said he’d prefer it all go to his players. “It’s silly,” said Stevens. “The praise is uncomfortable, and it’s just something that these guys should be getting it all. We all have a role to play, and we all need to play that role as well as we can.
