CELTICS FANS ARE A FAMILY

I am on Twitter right now and I am reading post after post about people being all jacked up for the game tonight.  I feel the same way.  Can't wait.  It is the first game of the season and plenty of us are excited like it is Super Bowl Sunday with TB12 going for #7.  Why is that I wonder?  Let's consider some possible reasons....

1. Kyrie is gone.  The wicked witch is dead.  The stank has been removed.  Phrase it however you want but I think most Green Teamers are just glad to have our team back. (PS can't wait until that turd comes to play us in Boston)

2. Jaylen resigned and wants to be here.  Hayward and Tatum and Kemba are all ready to go!  The youngsters look like legit potential players.  And Enes Kanter just seems like a dude we all want to root for with everything we got. It is great to actually like the guys you root for!!!

3. Brad Stevens and Danny Ainge seem like the smartest guys in the room.  This is the year they have been building up to.  Now is our time.  And we all know it.....even if the rest of the country doesn't.  Something about being the underdog gets me jacked up.

And 4. I hate the 76ers.  I hated them in the 80s when Dr J sucker punched Larry Bird.  I hated them in the 90s and 2000s when they sucked.  I hated them when they traded with us to move up to draft Markelle Fultz lol.  And I hate them today.  I still can't believe Al Horford went there to play with those losers.  Blows my mind.

Let's walk right into their building to start the season and show them what's up.

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len

We may be glad Danny Ainge rolled the dice on Theis

Frankly, I was not sure if Danny Ainge would ink Daniel Theis to a new deal, but it looks like a good move. Theis is signed for two years at a total of $10 million, with the second year non-guaranteed. With the departure of big men Al Horford and Aron Baynes, rolling the dice on Theis could work very well. In his first season in Boston, Daniel just kept improving. For the pre-All-Star stretch, he averaged 14.5 minutes/Game, 5.0 PPG, 4.7 RPG while shooting 52% on field goals and 30% on treys. Post-All-Star his minutes increased to 18.4 per game, his points to 7.8/game and his boards to 5.3/game. And he shot 68% on field goals and 40% on 3-pointers. Then a meniscus tear shut him down. His minutes and production took a hit last season, in part most likely due to lagging recovery from the injury. Right now he is playing on German's entry in the FIBA World Cup. In a game versus The Czech Rebublic, he scored 17 points, grabbed six rebounds, passed off for three assists and blocked tw

What Jeff Teague can bring to the Celtics offense

Bringing in Jeff Teague as some guard depth this year could end up being a monumental move for this year's Celtics team. Teague is a well respected veteran in the league, and having gone to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015 with the Atlanta Hawks, knows what it takes to win tough games. Here's a brief look at why I think Jeff will be a great fit with the C's Every Celtics fan loves Marcus Smart , due to everything he brings to the table, from the defensive intensity to scoring outbursts. For all the good things he does, Marcus excels off ball, and can have his effectiveness diminished when he is forced to be a primary ball handler. He is often pigeon-holed into that role with the second unit (or when Kemba is out), and Teague's addition will hopefully allow him to play more off-ball and maximize his abilities.  At the deadline last year, Teague was traded to the Atlanta Hawks to play alongside Trae Young. His usage rate and effectiveness dipped considerably, as he
