Surfing the Internet for a great Celtics blog?

You are in luck.  You just found it.  But know this.  If you are coming in, you need to be prepared to understand one thing. 

The Boston Celtics are going to win the 2019-2020 NBA title. 

I am a huge believer in speaking something into existence.  SO that is why I would like you readers to all say it with me:  The Boston Celtics are going to win the 2019-202 NBA title.

It isn't just our fans who are going to make it happen.  Just watch what is happening on the court.  Our team is growing up right before our eyes.  Jayson Tatum is hitting game winners. The look of confidence on his face as he released that ball Friday night reminded me of, dare I say it, Larry Bird.  Tatum is 21 years old and he is rapidly moving up the list of best players in the league.  Brad Stevens knows it.  That's why he called THE EXACT SAME PLAY as the one he called last year that got Kyrie all hot and bothered.  Tatum got the ball again.  And this time he drained it.  And this time you had Kemba Walker, a true leader, jumping for unselfish joy because these Celtics play for the team.  And that makes all the difference in the world.

The Celtics are going to win the 2019-2020 NBA title.

As I said, Kemba is a true leader.  It is rubbing off on the other guys already.  Tatum is confident.  Jaylen Brown has also talked about the confidence Kemba gives him.  Well I'm here to say that as a fan, Kemba is giving me a ton of confidence too!  The guy plays nuts defense.  He takes charges.  He boxes out and grabs huge rebounds.  Quite frankly, he makes me feel embarrassed for how good I used to think Kyrie was.  KEMBA WALKER IS TWICE THE PLAYER KYRIE WILL EVER BE!  And when the game is on the line in the playoffs, is there anyone we should have more confidence in than Kemba?  We all still remember what he did in the NCAA tourney run.  He makes clutch shots.  And he will be a major reason why the Celtics win the 2019-2020 NBA title.

The youth on this team is another reason why we are in store for such great things.  Grant Williams and Carsen Edwards and Tacko have come in with a great attitude focused on togetherness.  We are all loving rooting for the kids.  They are great complimentary pieces.

Marcus Smart though?  He is no longer a complimentary piece.  He is a legit stud!  We havent seen this level of play from Marcus in his prior years here, so we think of him as what he used to be.  He isn't!  Same goes for Rob Williams.  This guy is giving us an interior force who people are afraid to drive on.  Hayward is playing much better than last year as well.  ALL of our guys are getting better!  And that is just another reason why we are going to win the 2019-2020 NBA title.

It is not just wishful thinking folks.  We crushed the Bucks in the second half of that game the other night.  We should what we can do when we come together on defense.  I am writing this blog so all Celtics fans can truly enjoy the experience that we are getting this season.  It is going to happen.

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
