Brad Stevens has received quite a bit of attention in Boston recently for encouraging his big men to step out and shoot the 3-pointer. From Kelly Olynyk to Jared Sullinger to Brandon Bass and Vitor Faverani, virtually all of the Celtics bigs have the green light.
In Philadelphia, where new coach Brett Brown has the young 76ers playing at the fastest pace in the NBA (102.5 possessions per game), the same thing is happening with Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young.
