Random Thoughts on a 121-100 Loss in Preseason Finale


      Dennis the Menace Shroeder showed he can ball out. He's quick enough to get to the cup. Knocking down jumpers, hitting threes, and driving and dishing to cutters. This dude is explosive. A guy who annoys you when he isn't on your team. Thank goodness he's ours!

   Jabari Parker looks like a new man with a lease on his basketball life. He looks young, cutting, crashing the boards and playing D. He can be huge to this teams success this year. If he's a hair how he was at Duke, we are in for a good season. 

     Jayson Tatum has a new willingness to drive to the hoop with authority. But he's still shooting threes.. His body has made him more confident in crashing the boards. 

     Josh Richardson came in tonight and made in impact. His Moxy and competitiveness are going to be huge this season. He's a very confident get in your face defensive player. He used to kill the C's, now he can take it to the rest of the league.

     Enes Kanter was doing his thing by crashing the boards. His running ability is something to watch for this writer. Honestly, his role this season can be very important. 

     Romeo Langford looks like he wants to make an impact this year. Maybe seeing 3Smith and PP has motivated him to give it all this year. Fighting for his playing time

     Defense was active tonight and the rotations were good for the most part. They are talking to one another. Which is great to see. Switching and just grinding is plain great to see already. 

     Smart being suspended is a good thing. Sends a message that Ime isn't playing, and tells everyone to be ready and responsible. Also he benched Grant for poor play and complaining to the refs. Showing he is the Coach!  

      Theo Pinson could be a guy who can fit this team as the ultimate puzzle piece that fits anywhere. He can guard multiple positions and has something to prove. 

     If this was a dress rehearsal for the game against the Knicks I fully expect a better effort and a full roster. Step one to Banner 18 starts Wednesday. This writer is pumped for what's to come.

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?
