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.

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
