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.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (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

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

Using trade exception to acquire Aaron Gordon needs consideration

The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon was taken fourth-overall in the 2014 NBA draft, two spots before Boston picked Marcus Smart at #6. I felt at the time that Danny Ainge would have taken Gordon with the sixth pick if the 6'8" power forward was still on the board. Well now, with a $28.5 million trade exception in his hands, it may be time to consider adding the super-athletic wing. Here's why: Brad Stevens feels you can't have enough mid-sized wings Brad Stevens does not favor the "little guys" because they often get mis-matched on defense by taller opponents. He also is not fond of the old-school, big centers. In his mind, they just can't be effective on his switching, perimeter defensive strategies. Gordon's salary fits the trade exception Aaron is set to earn $18.1 million this season and $16.4 million in the 2021-22 season. His salary was front-loaded, and that relatively-low $16.1 million figure kicks in when Jayson Tatum's max contract goes
