Pay Him. Pay That Man His Money. Celtics vs Knicks Preview!

This post was originally supposed to be about Jaylen Brown. It is no secret that just a week ago I was begging Danny Ainge not to extend Jaylen Brown. Not yet. Let the season play through and see how he does and then we can go from there, I pleaded. I have just seen too many guys in sports get big contracts and then get "fat and happy". Jaylen Brown looks neither fat nor happy. This guy is playing mean. A good mean. And so I'm all in with Danny.

I have loved Jaylen for three years.  Last year he was not good, but as I got to thinking.......he was the first guy I heard come out and openly throw Kyrie under the bus.  Jaylen let it be known that Kyrie was a turd. We all owe him a bunch of thanks for that. SO Jaylen, spend the $100+ million well. Keep playing like you did last night and we got a steal of a deal.

Now onto the real stuff.  Get out your wallet.  Tonight's game is the first one that I will encourage ALL OF YOU to bet on. The Celtics -6 is an absolute gift.

I said gift, not GIF!  But who doesn't love a little Larry Bird memory.  Here's why the Celts are gonna smoke the Knicks:

1. The Knicks played Brooklyn last night in the battle for NY.  They were super jacked up for the game.  Tonight's energy won't be the same for them.

2. I watched the end of the Knicks/Nets game after the Celts game ended.  The Knicks blow.  Hard.

3. The Celtics are just starting to build on things.  They will not take their foot off the petal.  Everyone is battling for minutes and nobody wants to let the team down.

4. Marcus Morris is on the Knicks.  Not only does he suck, but he is one of the players I hate most in the league.  Biggest fake tough guy in the league.  He's gonna try to get physical and Grant Williams is going to squash him like a grape.

This game is over before it even starts.  Go get your share of the man's money.

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
