Dee Brown: Pump it Up



     How many Celtics remember this Slam Dunk? How many of those same fans had these Reebok Pumps? Now if you had the tee shirt to match then you were bringing it that's for sure. Dee Brown burst into the scene with this moment wearing the beloved green and white.  

     Dee spent his first NBA seasons with the Celtics. An athletic guard who could jump out of the gym but also had an offensive and defensive game to boot. He played an important role on those early 1990s teams and many thought he would compliment Reggie Lewis in the future. He had a nice jump shot and could get to the rim pretty effortlessly! Defensively he made you work and could rise up to block your shot. How many fans remember that block in the playoffs?! 

     In his final seasons as a Celtic he averaged 15 points a game. Eventually he was traded by the unnamed coach who also got rid of Chauncey Billups. He spent a few seasons in Toronto and finished his career in Orlando.  

     Does anyone remember when he won Dream Job on ESPN?! Following that he had a show called City Slam. Dee made his rounds as coach in the WNBA and G league as well as the NBA. He is now the GM of the Clippers G league team.

     Imagine if he and Reggie had been able to grow as teammates. Sadly Reggie's life ended with his heart issue and Dee was traded away. Dee however holds a special place in Celtics hearts! How many fans purchased the retro pumps and tried recreating that infamous dunk albeit on a lowered hoop! Celtics fans it's okay to admit it, it's Dee-Lightful!

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

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

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
