There is the process of carefully building a team through professional approaches to talent evaluation, opportunistic acquisition, coaching, skill development and reassessment, and then there are opportunities that can be best described as pure gambling.

Stevens and the Celtics have built a team many now judge to have the highest chance of winning the title next year, and their core has not quite reached their prime yet.

Yes, this is fun, but we've watched Stevens for almost a decade. Does anyone seriously think the man would claw his way to this point and then decide to go all in on a coin flip instead?

I get the allure of the talent but I don't want that guy on my team. No way. Not unless something drastically changes with his personality.
