No Celtics blog from me yesterday because I don't want to be taken for GRANTed WILLIAMS!

I gotta keep the readers hungry for more!

Celtics blog writing is heating up hot and heavy. There is SO much interest in the team, and rightfully so. The Celts have gotten off to a good start and there are a handful of players that fans are excited about, perhaps none more than GRANT WILLIAMS. And this is why Celtics fans are the best!

Here are Grant's stats through 3 games (avg/game):

Points: 3.7
Rebounds: 3
Assists: 1.7
Steals 1.3
Blocks: .7

I expected them to be much much higher. Obviously, these numbers are short of outstanding. Yet search the chats section of Celtics blogs online and you will find comment after comment about how people LOVE Grant Williams' game. This dude is a player! He is freakishly strong and holds his spot on the court extremely well. He looks a bit undersized but man this dude pulls down rebounds in traffic like a champ. He sets a mean pick and he knows where to go to space the floor and get open. Celtics fans know the game of basketball. We watch for the little things. And we know that we have ourselves a winner here. For further evidence, check out this quick highlight clip of his time at Tennessee:


  


Danny Ainge - you have outdone yourself. I have been quite vocal about the incredible job you did landing Carsen Edwards (although I do think you should have taken him in the first round instead of trading down).  Getting Tacko Fall to come here was another master stroke.  But the find of the draft may well be grabbing Grant Williams with the #22 pick!  Other NBA GMs were obviously asleep at the wheel. Thank you Danny!  Great work!  Celtics fans will not take you or the work you have done in building this team for granted!

Read my blog and tell your friends.

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.) He  resided on Elm Street  in Townsend, Massachusetts 2.) He  kidnapped a woman  at gunpoint on  Elm Street, Pepperell , Massachusetts 3.) He was arrested and transported to Massachusetts State Police Barracks on Elm Street in Concord . 3.) He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts. When evil and cleverness reside in the same mind, the stage is often set for true horror. Such was the case with triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante . As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
