Brad Stevens said it 3 days ago on Zolak and Bertrand. He’s not going to Indiana University.

The head coach of the Boston Celtics reiterated it again tonight, prior to taking on the Sacramento Kings.

“I said it the other day. I’m not. I tried to say it as clearly as I could and make sure that people understand that place to me is special, because I don’t want to make it sound like it’s not,” Stevens said.

“But, like I said the other day, I’m so grateful to this organization, and to the people here, and for all that they’ve done for us.”

Stevens admits the Celtics with a 20-20 record are having a tough season, but he still loves his job.

“I love this area. People have been great to us. My family is so happy,” Stevens told reporters, “At the same time, home is home, and that’s why I wanted to make sure everybody understood that means a lot.”

Stevens wished Indiana the best in finding the successor to Archie Miller, but emphasized it won’t be him.

“I’m not a kid anymore. I’m a 44-year-old Masshole. I swerve around others when I’m driving, I eat Dunkin’ Donuts, and I root for the Patriots.”
