It's on news stands right now, but as far as I can tell, it hasn't been posted online. For what it's worth, you can follow Layden here on Twitter and Sports Illustrated here. My guess is that they'll post the full article soon, but here's a great excerpt on how Stevens dealt with losing playing time as a senior at Depauw and how that helped him later as a coach:
Two years later, in Stevens' first year at Butler, then assistant and future coach Todd Lickliter would introduce Stevens to Bill Russell's book Russell Rules: 11 Lessons on Leadership from the Twentieth Century's Greatest Winner. In it Russell sets forth the concept of "team ego," writing, "I was the most egotistical player they would ever meet. My ego is not a personal ego, it's a team ego. My ego demands--for myself--the success of the team."
Stevens says, "You have a choice to make when you're not playing: Either you're invested and a great teammate, or you're not. There were times, early on, where I wasn't a great teammate. It's a difficult concept, learning the we over me attitude. I'm glad I got to that point, because it really helped me as a coach."
Sounds a lot like UBUNTU, right? It's that kind of attitude that Stevens is going to have to ingrain into a young team that is no longer a collection of Big Threes and veterans.
The article goes on to reiterate everything that we've heard about Brad Stevens: how he's a student of the game, how he's able to get the most out of his players, how he embraces the analytics movement, and how he values relationships with his teams and coaches. Check out the full article when you get a chance this weekend.
