Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens' pregame speech to the East All-Stars: "It's an honor for us to be here and we appreciate the opportunity to be here with you guys. I get asked all the time about, ‘What inspired you to get into coaching? And what inspired you to want to do this?' And the truth of the matter is nobody is inspired to get into coaching, it just means we weren't good enough to be players. And ultimately the people that inspired me as a kid were the Reggie Millers, were the Larry Birds, were the Magic Johnsons, the Michael Jordans of our era — the guys that are sitting in your shoes. And so I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to share the day with you. And also I recognize the fact of what you mean to those kids."
