Stevens' Butler ties remain strong two years into Celtics tenure
Make no bones about it: Kameron Woods misses the coach who recruited him to Butler University. From the New England Sports Network:
"Kameron Woods was particular when deciding which NBA team he would visit first. For that, he turned to the man who knows him better than anyone in the NBA: his former college coach, Brad Stevens. “For my first one, it’s why we did it like this,” said Woods, who played two years under Stevens at Butler before Stevens took over as head coach of the Boston Celtics."
Stevens plucked Woods, just a 2-star recruit in high school, from the Louisville hoops scene late in the recruiting game. It appears as though Woods strives to reciprocate the loyalty Stevens once showed to him.
