Brad Stevens to coach Celtics

That was unexpected. Days after losing coach Doc Rivers to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Boston Celtics brought 36-year-old Brad Stevens from the Butler Bulldogs into the NBA. Clearly, with such a green (sorry) man in charge -- and, of course, the shipping out of veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce -- Danny Ainge & Co. are in full-rebuild mode. Is Stevens the right choice to see that through?
