Brad Stevens is pretty good at this basketball coaching thing.
But his comedy routine? Well…
Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown, playing without his protective eyewear, scored 26 points in the Celts’ 124-118 win over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. After the game, coach Stevens was asked about the role Brown’s optometrist played in getting the sophomore guard’s situation under control. That’s when he offered up this cringe-worthy gem:
Yeah, stick to your day job, Brad.
Stevens is a father of two, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see this type of dad humor. In any event, the Celtics head coach has led his team to the NBA’s second-best record this season, so he can crack all the lame jokes he wants.
