BOSTON — Brad Stevens is a funny guy.
The Celtics head coach, as he usually does, met with the media ahead of Boston’s game against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night at TD Garden. He was asked about the BIG3 rule changes that were announced Jan. 11 and saw his opportunity to take a hilarious jab at Brian Scalabrine, who is captain of the Ball Hogs.
“Scal, you still doing that?”, Stevens asked Scalabrine.
“Of course,” the NBC Sports Boston analyst replied. “You saw me play the other night.”
“I did,” Stevens said. “That’s why I asked.”
The exchange was pretty awesome. Check it out below:
