WHO IS READY TO PLAY AL HORFORD ON OPENING NIGHT?!?!

I don't want to bash Al too much.  He seems like a decent guy and when he was a Celtic I loved him.  I believed in him.  I believed he could lead us to the promised land.  But I was wrong.  And Al has moved on.  Now one week from tonight we open up the season against his new team, the PHILADELPHIA 76ers!


When Al came here he said he was coming here to help us win a title.  As we all know, that didn't happen.  We almost made it to the finals two years ago, and that was the extent of our success.  For shizz and giggles I went back and googled Al's stats during that Cleveland series when we lost in game 7.  For the series Al averaged 13.5 points a game and 7.5 rebounds a game.  In the deciding game 7, he pulled down a monstrous 4 rebounds. sarcasm font.

13 and 7 for the series.  That's who he was and that's who he is.  The disappointing thing is that he is a 13 and 7 player who was loved by the Celtics fanbase.  We all thought he was better than he is....and if he was still here, we would still be thinking he is better than he is.  Let's get a grip.  Al didn't come here to win a championship.  He came here to help us lose in game 7 of the eastern conference finals.  I'm not saying it was his fault that we lost.  But he definitely wasn't good enough to make us win.  And that's who Al Horford is as a basketball player.  He is good.  Great teammate.  Solid guy who works hard.


On Thursday night of next week, he is going to have to guard either Tatum or Hayward.  Who does he match up against? I'm here to tell everyone right now that there is NO WAY Horford is going to be able to stop Tatum off the dribble. I'm someone who holds grudges (it's not a healthy way to live) so selfishly I'm hoping Tatum embarrasses the ever living crap out of Al all night long.  You don't leave the Celtics to go to the 76ers.  You just don't do it.  They offered you more money?  OK good.  Let's see how that extra money makes you feel about your decision when we bounce your ass in the playoffs this year.


I'd love to tear into the 76ers lineup a bit but let's save it for next week. I'm getting myself worked up too much too soon.

Let's make Al regret his horrible decision Green Team!!!

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.)

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed. Rick Barry - Watermelon Grin https://t.co/NrUSkzrwZH via @YouTube — Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) September 24, 2021 Bill responded with, "That was K. C. That wasn't me. That was K. C." Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
