Imo, nothing good can come from the kind of breathless enthusiasm I'm reading about the coming of Brad Stevens, from fans on this and other forums. I mean NOTHING good. All we're doing is ratcheting up the pressure on our new coach, on Rondo, on Danny, on the whole team.
If you think we're just giving them confidence.... that would be true if the positivity were more muted, and reasonable. But all this talk of Stevens' "genius" and Danny's "brilliance" and how Rondo + Stevens = match made in heaven — will almost certainly end badly if it continues. The job they face is tough enough without having to deal with outsize expectations.
So can we please stop it? Can we pull it back a few miles, and just be supportive and hopeful? It's enough, imo. Enough. I seriously doubt these guys want any more than that from us, at this point of what will probably — hopefully — be a long, long Celtics story.
