“I think he gets a little too much praise, but I like what he’s doing,” Parish said on Sirius XM NBA radio. “They’re giving him all the love like he won three or four championships. Come on now. Win something first, with all the love he’s getting. Now granted, don’t get me wrong, he’s a solid coach, I’ll give him that. The love he’s getting from the media, you’d think the Celtics won two or three championships. You would think.”
Later Parish added, “That don’t mean that you’re not great or good just because you never won a championship. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m not saying Brad Stevens should not be getting praise for the job that he’s done because I feel like he’s done an outstanding job. I’m just saying, the amount of praise he’s getting, you’d think he won a championship or two. They don’t give Steve Kerr that much love. Come on.”
I think Parish is lacking perspective. Brad is missing two of his best players while Kerr has arguably the best team ever assembled, yet they are both in the CF.
