Why the Celtics Need Jaylen Brown



     Why is there so much chatter about trading Jaylen Brown? Every year since he's been in the NBA he has improved. In all honesty if you redo the draft  he would be the number one pick  In every year but one, his points per game have consistently gone up. This year he made his first All-Star game. 

     First impressions of Jaylen as a rookie indicated he was an athlete and he could rock the rim. As we have witnessed he does that and so much more. When he's on his game he's capable of carrying a team as he did this season when Jayson Tatum was out with COVID. He has the ability to get to the hoop at will, and there isn't anyone stopping him from getting to the cup. 

     He also has the foresight to find his teammates for open looks. His midrange game has developed very well to the point where he's automatic. You can see the work he's put in given how he can be a deadly three point shooter. Defensively given his frame, strength, and quickness, he can stop anyone in the league when he puts his mind to it. 

     There are so many teams who would love to have the "problem" of having two similar players in Brown and Tatum but the more talent on your team the better you are. Jaylen should be a life-long Celtic. He has that fire inside and his game gets better every year. Not to mention he said he wants this team to run more. Tommy Heinsohn is smiling down from basketball heaven after hearing that. trading JB would be a mistake. Let's give him and this Celtics team the opportunity to not only make the Eastern Conference Finals, but take that next step and hit the finals.

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
