Still irked at Irving? Then read this!

     Let's dive into a subject that may trigger plenty of responses from Celtics fans. How many Celtics fans said pre trade, even if Kyrie was available, that you wouldn't want him in Green. This writer felt that way originally. Ultimately when the trade went down Celtics fans were either pleased with what Danny did, or pissed. Giving up a player like Isaiah Thomas, who gave his heart and soul to Celtics fans, seemed wrong.

     Given Kyrie's talent on the court you have to make this trade, right?? At first it seemed it could be a great fit. He wanted to be a leader and step out of Lebron's shadow. The Celtics team he stepped into was primed for that. The question is, does a player's talent on the court out-weigh the rest? What Celtics fans saw off the court started to become dicey. 

     Celtics fans all remember, during a season ticket holders event, when he said, if you will have me I'd like to re-sign here. He also talked about wanting his number in the rafters. Not something to ever envision given what happened. Feels like a needle being stuck in your eye! 

     Eventually everything seemed to turn. Along this arduous turn there were cryptic things being said and happening. Fast forward to signing with the Nets. Which eventually led to a Celtics vs Nets playoff series this past year. Before the series ever started, he planted the racial card about Boston. Even though when he played here, never once did that come out. 

      Was that his way of preparation for being booed? Given this would be the first time Celtics fans would be seeing him? That's in each readers opinion. Just throwing it out there. 

     In game 4 at the Garden after their win, Kyrie walks to center court and stomps on the Celtic logo. Childish behavior from a player who hold himself in high esteem. Yet there were no Celtics players who manned up and took him to task. Celtics fans heard from plenty of past Celtics players who voiced their disgust. Those players would have sent a message on the floor in the next game. Yet come game 5 and it was crickets. 

     Following game-5 Kyrie, was glowing about Boston and it's fans even, after getting a water bottle thrown at him. Why originally throw shade at a fan base, then we are all cool afterwards. Is it because you won? Is it because you accomplished what underlying agenda you had? 

     Ultimately Celtics fans,  how do you feel? Should a players talents on the floor totally deflect from what could be looked at possible illness off the floor? 

     From this writers perspective, this trade ultimately hurt the Celtics. We had a great player who embraced Boston and brought in a player who did damage. 

     Next time anyone stomps on the logo, there should be a message sent. With some old school mentality! Marcus Smart do you feel us? With that said let's hope this Celtics team remembers that moment and go out there and beat the Nets this year!

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 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

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

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?
