Please Danny - Do not sign JAYLEN BROWN to an extention!!!

I'm begging you Danny.  Don't do it.  Not yet.  Please just let the season play out and then we can go from there.


I am already hearing all kinds of talk about the "talent" we have on the Celtics this year and people asking how there will be enough minutes for everyone to play.  Carsen Edwards needs to be on the court.  Marcus Smart is the 6th man.  Enes Kanter has to play.  Robert and Grant Williams can contribute so they gotta get some run somehow.  "We have so much talent."  Oh my God.  Please help me.  People said the exact same crap last year.  I look back at last year's squad and I say "where was all the talent?"  Seriously people - We weren't that good.  We didn't underachieve.  We just were not that good.  We had nobody who could rebound.  Our toughness was seriously lacking.  Kyrie's offense was a joke most nights.  Jayson Tatum and Gordon Hayward almost never beat their man off the dribble to get to the basket and finish.  I could go on and on.  We lost four in a row to Milwaukee for a reason, and the reason was not because we "underachieved".

Last season was a failure because Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown did not step up.  They got worse from the year before.  Note: This does not mean they underachieved.  It just means they played worse.  Yet now we have people in the media rushing to resign Jaylen Brown to a $100+ million long term deal because he had a few good looking preseason games?


PLEASE keep in mind that Jaylen was on the US team this summer that finished 7th in the FIBA World Cup.  You may ask: The US finished in 7th place in the world in basketball?  Yes!  And Jaylen Brown was a major contributor!  Please give me a break with all the accolades people are giving him.  He needs to stay hungry.  And he needs to earn his money.

Danny, if you pay Jaylen now, you will set the precedent that talent and athletic ability and "potential" are good enough for Celtics fans.  I am here to tell you that IT ISN'T!  We want wins.  Keep Jaylen hungry and pushing and striving to be his best.  And let's see how he does.

Truth be told, I have liked Jaylen since we drafted him.  But last year, he sucked.  And I don't want to hear any arguments.  I watched him play every night and he sucked.  He was competitive in the playoffs - yes.  But he did not play like a guy that you build around and win an NBA championship.  Can he get to that level?  I hope so.  But for me, he is going to have to play like it before I jump on that bandwagon and back up the Brinks truck for him.  I had enough "potential" last year to last a lifetime.  This Celtics team needs to prove it to me.

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?

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
