Recently minted Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Brad Stevens took time to talk with TNT sportscaster Ernie Johnson in the pandemic hiatus as the league geared up for a resumed 2019-20 season. They discussed his players’ participation in protests going on at the time and his history as a basketball player.

Much of the conversation between the Celtics head coach and NBA analyst focused on the background of Stevens and what led him to become a coach of the league’s most storied franchise. They discussed his time as a pharmaceutical rep as he figured out what to do once his career as a Division III player ended and touched on his experience playing the game.

Johnson even dug up some footage of Stevens while he was still a high school basketball player, allegedly edited to make the Indiana native look a lot better than he supposedly was.
