At this point, I'm wondering who the most clever professional coach is in Boston.

Imagine going to conference finals without Brown and Ben. That's basically what Stevens just did in basketball.

There is absolutely no comparison in the level of parity in the NBA vs. the NFL. I'll be impressed with Boston's run if they are even remotely competitive with Houston or Golden State in the Finals.

I'm not disputing the idea of Stevens being a brilliant strategist. He and Pop are not the only ones though. Rick Carlisle is a heck of a coach.

Getting to the conference finals in the JV conference in and of itself doesn't mean much.

I don't think Boston is going any further either. My general point is that it is nice to have a master strategist who can plan and use clock in order to overcome talent deficits and help team reach max potential. In the case of the PS, the question is alway whether talent surplus can overcome lack of strategy, adjustment and time management.
