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.

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
