Celtics coach Brad Stevens explains why he dressed up as Pete Buttigieg for Halloween
Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens recently joined in on all the Halloween festivities, with the 43-year-old shot-caller opting to dress up as South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg.
These two have an uncanny resemblance, and as a matter of fact, Buttigieg himself actually dressed as Stevens for his own Halloween costume. The Celtics’ coach would not be outdone, and decided to return the favor.

Later on, the real Brad Stevens explained his motivation behind his decision to dress up as the renowned politician for Halloween. According to coach Brad, it was actually his wife’s idea.
Brad Stevens said his wife and some friends pushed him to do the Pete Buttigieg imitation yesterday while handing out candy. Said his wife was "trying to get her followers up" by posting it on social media.

Stevens and the rest of the Celtics had the night off for Halloween, but all the fun and games will be once again put on hold as they return to action on Friday. Boston are slated to host the New York Knicks in the TD Garden, in what is expected to be a routine victory for the home team.
Boston are currently 3-1 to start the new season, with the team logging three consecutive wins following an opening night defeat at the hands of their arch-rivals, the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics have had a pretty tough schedule thus far, but they have been quite impressive nonetheless, securing victories against the defending champs, the Toronto Raptors as well as Eastern Conference top contender, the Milwaukee Bucks.
The C’s have also already defeated the Knicks this season, logging an easy 118-95 victory in Madison Square Garden on Saturday. If all goes according to plan, Boston should be looking at a 4-1 record by day’s end.
