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.) 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?

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
