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 horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - and some hope for the future By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.) and Off. Steven Bezanson (Ret.) Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating menace 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 . After 34 years, the legend lives on . Time to set it straight from the cops that were there. The major point here is that when the court system failed , and dumped this murderer back into the community, that same community joined forces with the police, and the resulting partnership (hopefully) guaranteed this man will die in prison . 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

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
