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.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (Ret.) Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating menace Elm Street  surfaces on three 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  tried and convicted  of 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 presence , frequently hiding in a tiny space between the walls of the home . To: Kidnapping th

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
