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

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
