Who wants to come along on an EPIC Celtics journey?

There really is something about being an underdog that does it for me as a Celtics fan.  And there is something about being flat out disrespected that does it for me a little more.

The Celtics are 9-1.  We have the best record in the league and we have the best team in the league. It's that simple.

Yet nobody wants to talk about us as a serious threat to win the championship. Hell, nobody even wants to give us the respect of being a legit chance to win the Atlantc Division!  Even though the Celts are 9-1 and the 76ers are 7-4, current odds online have the totally disfunctional 76ers at -200 to make $100 to win the division.  The Celts are +300!  For you non gambling types, that means if you bet $100 you will get back a total of $400 if the Celtics win the division.  This is just total disrespect.  And I'm going to do something about it.

My plan for next week is to board a plane to Las Vegas for a one day business trip.  I am going there to take their money.  Plain and simple.  The Celtics sit at roughly 20-1 to win the NBA title this year and I am going to make a large wager on that outcome.  The Celts are better than the 76ers.  And we are better than the Milwaukee Bucks.  Out West we will have to contend with one of the LA teams or possibly Denver, who I think is a sneaky possible upset team out there.  The Celts can beat each of these teams.  Yes it will be a battle, but isn't that what we want as fans?  Let's be underdogs to the end and shove it in people's faces when we win it all.

I will be writing about my travels as they happen next week.  Stay tuned.  I want you blog readers to come along with me on what is sure to be an EPIC season long journey.  The rest of the country apparently still has no clue, but our Celtics are going to be the 2019-2020 NBA champions!!!

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.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (Ret.) Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating menace Elm Street  surfaces on three 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  tried and convicted  of 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 presence , frequently hiding in a tiny space between the walls of the home . To: Kidnapping th

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

Using trade exception to acquire Aaron Gordon needs consideration

The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon was taken fourth-overall in the 2014 NBA draft, two spots before Boston picked Marcus Smart at #6. I felt at the time that Danny Ainge would have taken Gordon with the sixth pick if the 6'8" power forward was still on the board. Well now, with a $28.5 million trade exception in his hands, it may be time to consider adding the super-athletic wing. Here's why: Brad Stevens feels you can't have enough mid-sized wings Brad Stevens does not favor the "little guys" because they often get mis-matched on defense by taller opponents. He also is not fond of the old-school, big centers. In his mind, they just can't be effective on his switching, perimeter defensive strategies. Gordon's salary fits the trade exception Aaron is set to earn $18.1 million this season and $16.4 million in the 2021-22 season. His salary was front-loaded, and that relatively-low $16.1 million figure kicks in when Jayson Tatum's max contract goes
