Boston Celtics legend Robert Parish isn't buying all of the Brad Stevens hype.  He said in an interview with Sirius XM NBA radio that the Celtics head coach is receiving too much praise from the media for a guy who doesn't have any rings.

Via ESPN:

"I think he gets a little too much praise, but I like what he's doing," Parish said on Sirius XM NBA radio. "They're giving him all the love like he won three or four championships. Come on now. Win something first, with all the love he's getting. Now granted, don't get me wrong, he's a solid coach, I'll give him that. The love he's getting from the media, you'd think the Celtics won two or three championships. You would think."

Later Parish added, "That don't mean that you're not great or good just because you never won a championship. That's not what I'm saying. I'm not saying Brad Stevens should not be getting praise for the job that he's done because I feel like he's done an outstanding job. I'm just saying, the amount of praise he's getting, you'd think he won a championship or two. They don't give Steve Kerr that much love. Come on."

Parish isn't wrong, Stevens has done a great job this year with all of the injuries the Celtics have endured, but he hasn't won anything yet.  At the end of the day you play the game to win.  Win a couple of rings first then talk to The Chief about how great Stevens is.
