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!!!

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
