Kameron Woods cut from tree of Brad Stevens
Folks who watched the Butler Bulldogs play during the Brad Stevens see a lot of similarities in the Boston Celtics of today. From the Boston Herald:
"When the Celtics beat Utah on March 4 in the Garden on Tyler Zeller's buzzer-beating layup off Marcus Smart's inbounds lob, every Butler player watching the game recognized the play. The scheme was one of those Brad Stevens whiteboard wonders - a game winner called with fractions left in the game, in this case 1.7 seconds."
Stevens once employed former Bulldog point guard Ronald Nored, and Alex Barlow is currently working in the Celtics' video department.
Now, the C's appear to be giving serious consideration to Butler graduate Kameron Woods. The Louisville native is freakishly long and a ferocious rebounder, but he's going to have to add weight to stick at the next level.
