Kidd: Brad Stevens Will Be Successful in NBA
“(Coach Brad Stevens) He’s had success in college and he’s going to have success in the NBA,” (Nets Coach Jason) Kidd said before facing Stevens for the first time in a Nets-Celtics preseason game. “So I think it would probably be me learning how to be a head coach in this league [which will be more difficult].
“I think the transition [from college] will be easier for him because he is a head coach and he understands what it takes to be successful,” Kidd said. “For that, Boston has picked a good guy in the sense of [Stevens] understanding what it takes to win.”
