Interesting game tonight for a short-handed Celtics team.


      So we have no Al Horford or Jaylen Brown due to Covid protocols. Pile on to that where Josh Richardson, Dennis Schroder, The Wolverine and Jayson Tatum are getting a day to rest. Who do we see tonight make the most of their minutes? The assumption would be that Payton Pritchard and 3Smith should be major contributors tonight. Do we see some of that summer loving where they go off? 

     Will we get more minutes for Hernangomez who appears to have a motor that goes hard. Do we see Rob and Grant a lot on the floor together? We know what we have in Kanter, with that incredible running style up and down the floor. Is this a Romeo game filled with loving threes?

     Ultimately tonight's game could give us insight into who takes that final roster spot? Is Jabari going to bring that talent and show why he was a top draft pick? What about Sam Hauser - will he light it up?  Garrison Matthews anyone. Let's see what he's got in the tank from deep! Do we get a Theo Pinson sighting? Where's Ryan Arcianado? Personally I want to see Bruno bring that KG type play and personality.

      Let's just hope overall the Celtics don't get hit with Covid like last year. We deserve to see this team healthy and maximize what can be a great season! This writer knows and understands Covid and injuries are part of the game. With that said, we had enough of that last year. Let's also think big picture. Both the Sixers and Nets are kinda dealing with dysfunction and could a top 4 seed be in play for us? Food for thought!

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

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
