Es hora de que Tacko brille esta noche


 Muy bien, podría ser una situación básica para los Boston Celtics esta noche contra el rival Miami Heat. Con solo el mínimo de ocho jugadores de la Liga listados como "disponibles", podría significar que Tacko Time finalmente está aquí.

El "Green Giant" ha visto algunos minutos aumentados en dos juegos en lo que va de temporada y, obviamente, ha estado trabajando en su juego. Sus faltas y pérdidas de balón están bajas. Es cierto que la muestra de este año es pequeña, pero la temporada pasada sus estadísticas por 36 minutos muestran 7.6 faltas y 3.3 pérdidas de balón. Esta temporada revelan 5.8 faltas y CERO pérdidas de balón.

El rebote ofensivo de Tacko es una de las razones por las que Boston ocupa el tercer lugar en la NBA en rebotes ofensivos por juego (11.7 RPG). A pesar de no tener un atletismo de élite, es un protector de llanta fabuloso.


 En una defensa de zona, sería un gran obstáculo para los oponentes que ingresan a su territorio. En los dos juegos de Fall esta temporada, ha promediado solo 12.5 MPG. Eso debería cambiar esta noche. Oye, ¿por qué no? Es temprano en la temporada, Boston está empatado con los 76'ers, Suns y Lakers por el mejor récord de la NBA (7-3), y es hora de darle minutos significativos mientras aún está libre de COVID.


Tacko rebota, bloquea y disuade los tiros, tiene buenas manos para atrapar y terminar en lobs, y es un gran compañero de equipo. Los hombres grandes de la Liga tardan un poco más en desarrollarse. Tacko todavía está crudo, pero con la preparación adecuada, podría ser un arma grande (literalmente) en el arsenal de Brad Stevens.

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- 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

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
