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.

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
