As the Boston Celtics planned their offseason moves, Danny Ainge reveals that he was thinking about what head coach Brad Stevens would like on the team.

Boston didn’t exactly have the perfect offseason after losing both Kyrie Irving and Al Horford in free agency. However, they managed to bounce back by getting Kemba Walker and signing Enes Kanter.

Ainge, the Celtics’ general manager and president of basketball operations, is obviously satisfied with the offseason they had. Furthermore, he thinks that Stevens would be happy with the roster they have built so far.

“My biggest concern through all of this was, I want my coach to be happy who he’s coaching and that’s the hardest job. I’ve been at this business a long time. It’s…you gotta have fun,” Ainge said, per A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston.

“You really have to have joy. That doesn’t mean every minute is going to be happy. Everybody is going to face adversity and challenges and trials through the course of a season. But, it still has to be fun.”

Stevens is highly regarded as one of the best young coaches in the league. He guided the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2018 without Kyrie and Gordon Hayward, two of their top acquisitions in the summer of 2017. They may have lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7, but everybody thought that it was the beginning of Boston’s rise to the top of the NBA.

Unfortunately, their 2018-19 campaign was a disaster. The team’s young core never had a chance to co-exist with Irving and what was supposed to be a championship year ended in the second round of the playoffs.

Now, Boston is moving on from their failed attempts to build a super team. At this point, they just want to play excellent basketball, and Ainge believes Stevens and their new squad can do that.
