Kemba Walker: The class act is going home

 
Kemba Walker is going home! The Big Apple is getting a class act on and off the floor (per New York Post's Zach Braziller):

“You get people from New York who are diehard Knicks fans and you get people who are fans of him (Kemba) because of him being from New York and the special player, person he is,” said Pratt, now an NBA agent. “Now those Knicks fans get to root for him on their team. It’s amazing.”

Basketball fans know his big game moments at MSG in college.  As a Celtic Kemba always gave 100 percent while he was out there. When he signed here it was for money of course but also the legacy the Celtics organization has. From the start he knew his role of coming here to bring positivity and play the role of helping the Jays develop. 

     From his college career to the pros Kemba has been a winner and big time player. Throughout his career in Charlotte he was their go to player and leader. As Celtics fans remember, he always killed the Celtics and usually lit up most of the league. There was hope when the Celtics signed him yet his knee issue played a huge role in him not fully reaching his potential with the Celtics. 

     His time in Boston left some memorable moments of vintage Kemba whether it was him lighting it up from deep or stopping on a dime and making a hell of a pass. No can ever question his heart and he always had that infectious smile. Unfortunately his injuries didn't allow him to reach his full potential in Boston. 

     Celtics fans prepare yourselves because Kemba will have something to prove when he comes to town with the Knicks this season. Kemba was a class act here in Boston and should be wished all the success in the world - just not against the Celtics! In the back of Celtics minds you have to wonder what if his knees were healthy during his time in green and white!

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.) and Off.

As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and

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
