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.)  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 his two daughters as an unseen

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?

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
