Grant Williams: Where does he fit?


     Will Grant Williams fit into this year's Celtics plans? This photo kinda sums up what Celtics fans feel about him. Are there enough minutes for him given all the moves the Mad Scientist, Brad Stevens, has made? Celtics fans have seen that he does make plays but also you question what the heck is he doing out there?! Have inconsistent minutes affected his progress as well. Given the way the roster is shaping up, where do the minutes end up being split?

     Grant has shown flashes since he's been a part of the Celtics organization, reminding you of Semi Ojeleye - but maybe with a tad more skill offensively? Works hard, has a basketball mind, willing to do whatever it takes to be on the floor. He has a knack for big rebounds. Can occasionally hit a three, down low he has some skills for a smaller sized player. Pretty decent passer and gives what he has on the defensive end. We all know he was an SEC player of the year. 

     Question remains where do you find minutes for him? Is he a guy who comes in and gives Al or Rob a break? Who should he be on the floor with? The Jays, second unit, or maybe just a spot bench player who can give you minutes in a long arduous season? Or has his time come to an end like say Carsen Edwards? Has that entire draft class been a bust? Could Grant be used as a trade chip in a deal? 

      Only time will tell what lies in Grants future. If he does get solid minutes can he make a big enough impact to catch the eye of new Coach Ime Udoka? Celtics let's wait and see because we all know when your on the court, the ball don't lie.

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
