Who is the X-Factor off the bench?


      Who is the X Factor off the Celtics bench this season? Is there that bona fide come-in-the-game, lead-the-second-unit- bucket maker? Will it be PP, Aaron, or newly acquired JRich? Who do Celtics fans want to see be that sixth man. Historically the Celtics have always found that player. Hondo or McHale anyone!

     We saw last season Payton Pritchard had the ability to make plays off the bench. Now with a year under his belt, can new Coach Ime Udoka give him the Green light?! With that being asked of him Celtics fans know he can score at will. He did it in summer league and the Pro Am! Time will tell for PP! 

     Then there's Aaron who showed plenty of promise in his first year. Willing to drive to the hoop, run the break, and knock down threes! He also showed flashes of lightning in the summer league. He could be instant offense for this year's Celtics team.

     What about JRich,a guy fans saw as an opponent come in and light the Celtics up regularly. Given his length and ability, can he be that spark of fire off the bench? Celtics fans know he's a dawg on D, time to feed him offensively off the bench? Will it be Dennis Schroder, another streaky kind of shooter, who can get to the hoop at will. So many questions about the bench but we need to know who's cracking that starting five. 

     Celtics fans who are your starting five this season? Bench favorites? Is Brad still looking for more fire power?!

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. Steven Bezanson (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  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

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
