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!!!!!!

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
