The Celtics play the Spurs today - But dont miss what happened last night!


I'm still amazed by the number of Celtics fans on social media who feel like we really miss Al Horford.  It blows my mind!  I'm not here to say he sucks.  He was a good Celtic and he was a guy I enjoyed rooting for while he was here.  But this dude was never that good......and he left to go to the enemy!  Yes the Lakers are our #1 rival but the 76ers are right behind them in 2nd place.  I hate the 76ers.  I don't like their players.  I don't like their fans.  And I dont like the way they went about trying to build a winning team by tanking.  Al going there says he never really cared about us as fans.  So why do we care about him?

I don't.

I'm glad he airballed this shot with the game on the line.  I'm glad he choked.  I'm glad he was part of blowing a 19 POINT LEAD that Philly had heading into the 4th quarter.  It was the largest 4th quarter comeback in Denver Nuggets history and Al was a big part of it!  Congrats Al!

Mostly I am glad that we are going to get the chance to make him regret his decision to leave.  He left an incredible team environment and fanbase to go and play with a bunch of chumps.  And yes, Joel Embiid is a chump.  8 turnovers last night.  Ben Simmons is their other leader.  And he has had some great games against us.  But what do you think about this?



I have said it a million times and I will say it again: I can't believe anyone thinks the 76ers are going to beat us in a best of 7 series.  THERE IS NO CHANCE!

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

Marcus Smart: The gentle side of a ferocious competitor

Marcus Smart's ferocity strikes fear into most of his opponents, but he has a tender side. The same dogged defender that harasses opponents into making mistakes and picks up floor burns diving on the floor for loose balls took the time to comfort my family when we were hosted at TD Garden on Saturday, February 29, 2020. This all started following the November death of my granddaughter, Courtney, after a 25-year battle with cystic fibrosis. She left behind my great grandson, Carson Thomas Lane, and I made a very simple request to Carson's namesake, Celtics rookie Carsen Edwards. My Twitter followers stepped up immediately with countless retweets and notifications. Edwards responded promptly via Twitter, as did Marcus Smart, who prompted Twitter followers to "send mail that uplifts & showers this kid with love" . Carson Thomas Lane- I lost my mom recently to. But it’s people like ur great grandpa who will get u thru the tough times as you grow up. Much love youn

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
