Giannis and the Bucks: No need for more super teams


      The Bucks winning a title proves that super teams are not necessary to win an NBA championship. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks proved if you have a team that plays as a team, you can win it all. A team that believes in itself. A cohesive unit with one goal in mind. Giannis proved that loyalty to the team that drafted you is something special. They went through tough losses together yet he didn't pack up and join a super team. His team in fact beat a so called super team. 

     Super teams were a response to Danny Ainge, through shrewd trade, was able to put together a team that had Kevin Garnett, The Truth, and Ray. When they broke Lebron James in Cleveland instead of going back there, The King went and started a so called super team with Wade and Bosh. And even though they won a few titles, they lost more than they won.  
     This year's creation of a super team consisted of Durant, Harden and Irving and everyone was ready to hand them the title. Even though they had three top tier players, the rest of their pieces were not very good. The Bucks despite going down to them 0-2 found a way to beat them in seven - and you want to know why - because they were the better TEAM! Guys like Middleton, Holiday, Lopez, Tucker, Portis, and the rest of the team and of course Giannis made up a team willing to sacrifice for each other! 

      This Bucks team gives hope to all the other teams who have drafted a guy or two, that you know you can win a title without being that so called super team. Look how far the Hawks got this season with one true star in Trae Young yet that group played as a team. For Celtics fans, this Bucks team should give hope because the Celtics have guys like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Now they need to continue to build a team around them. 

     The Bucks and Giannis have proven that loyalty matters. Team work matters! A team that, when staring down despair and trailing in various series, found a way to come back and win and do it together. They knocked off the so called super team why because they were a complete team! The Bucks and Giannis are another example that if your star gives it his all on every play the rest of the team follows suit. Talk about a memorable performance with 50 points to bring your franchise it's first title in 50 years! NBA fans, this season was magical and now we know super teams are a thing of the past. Real true teams with stars that are loyal are the new wave in the NBA!

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

Anna Horford let's fan know Al's value to the Boston Celtics

 Some fans of pro basketball just take the contrary view just to be...well - contrary , with no solid basis for their stand. Such was the case when when Al Horford's sister, Anna Horford, overheard an argument centered around the value of her brother to the Boston Celtics . No true Boston fan doesn’t love Al!! — Stephanie (@smars319) November 23, 2021 Al's value. Let's take a look at his team stats : Scoring: 4th at 13.1 PPG Rebounds: 2nd at 8.7 RPG Assists: 3rd at 3.5 APG Steals: 4th at 0.9 SPG Blocks: 1st at 1.9 BPG (tied with Giannis for 6th place in the NBA) Minutes: 6th at 29.4 MPG   One more thing about the blocks. That is new for Al . He is the only player over 29 years of age in the top-6 in blocks. Horford is 35. This gem-of-an-individual needs to prove nothing to Celtics fans, but I bet he needs to prove something to himself. Have I ever mentioned I love this guy?
