Brad Stevens impressed with players' commitments to social justice

BOSTON — As the Celtics opened their practice facility in Allston for individual workouts without coaches, Brad Stevens spoke with the media via Zoom conference. Stevens explained how impressed he was with the efforts his players made this past weekend to have their voices heard in the fight against racial injustice.

“The thing that I wanted them to know is that every decent person is hurting,” said Stevens. “Every decent person feels the pain of the African-American community, but I also don’t want to pretend like I know the exact distinct pain. What I wanted them to know is I am with them and I thought that was really important. It’s so great to see so many guys so active.”
