The Boston Celtics’ latest loss drew plenty of criticism for head coach Brad Stevens.
The Boston Celtics are not in a good place right now. After Sunday’s disappointing loss to the 6-17 Washington Wizards dropped the Celtics to 13-13 overall, they’ve now lost four of their last five games and seven of their last 10.
Coming off an Eastern Conference Finals appearance just a few months ago, this isn’t the season anyone expected for this team, and head coach Brad Stevens is starting to come under fire for it.
After getting blown out by the Wizards in a 104-91 throttling that was much worse than the final score indicated, Stevens caught plenty of heat from NBA Twitter.
Brad Stevens and the Celtics are disappointing everyone
For the most part, there was plenty of valid Stevens criticism to go around:
However, beyond the actual basketball analysis and the fact that Boston has struggled with its roster depth this season, there was plenty more criticism to go around.

Some pointed out that while Stevens is still a good coach, he has to shoulder some of the responsibility for how lackadaisical the Celts have looked lately:
And, of course, there were plenty of jokes to go around about Stevens and how he needs to be fired:
Finally, it doesn’t get much better than trolling one of the all-time worst debates to ever grace NBA Twitter:
Here’s hoping the Celtics figure it out soon, because it doesn’t look like their fans can responsibly handle much more of this.
