Weekends in a Celtics dominated NBA - some random thoughts

What a season this is going to be for the Celtics.  So much goodness to come, I can hardly wait.  It's not just the great things to come from the Celts that has me excited about the NBA though.  Let's take a look at some of the big stories in the NBA.

Lebron James doesn't want to talk about China and Hong Kong anymore.  That is his right.  But wow the media jumped all over him for what he initially had to say.  I hope we play the Lakers in the finals so that our reporters can ask him a billion questions about China.


In the betting community the Houston Rockets have an over/under of 53.5 wins for this season?  WHAT?!?!  Who is taking the over?  My guess is it could be the same people who allowed Carsen Edwards @Cboogie_3 to fall to the second round of the draft.  You heard it here first.  THE HOUSTON ROCKETS HAVE ZERO CHANCE TO GET 54 WINS.  Harden plays no defense and Westbrook has no self-control, especially on D.  He gets in foul trouble all of the time.  This marriage is doomed for disaster from the beginning.  And we all should see it coming.  Don't even bother going to the marriage ceremony, just get ready for one heckuva divorce party.  And BTW, who is Kendrick Nunn????


Zion Williamson is hurt and will miss the first few weeks of the season. 


The Celtics don't play the Pelicans until January so hopefully he will be healthy by then.  BUT he got hurt in the very first game he played in the summer league and now he is hurt again before the regular season even starts. I said it before the draft.  The guy will be a bust.  He can't shoot - and that matters!  He is 275 pounds or whatever and he is used to just squashing people on his way to the hoop.  NBA players aint gonna let that happen.  They are a lot bigger and stronger than he has ever played against.  He's gonna try to bulldog them, but in 35 minutes a night he's gonna get nailed a ton.  He will never play a full season and will be done with basketball within 5 years.  Write it down.

And I saved the best tweet for last:


What a punk move by the biggest fake tough guy in the NBA. I hated having him on the Celtics and am so so glad he's gone. He cannot get a big rebound to save his life. Constantly talks about how tough he is but when it comes time to battle under the boards he has always been nowhere to be found. Can't wait to lay a beatdown on him and the Knicks in our third game of the season on Sunday, October 27. Tough guys do not go to the NY Knicks lmao!!!!!!

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?

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
