Ben-to-Boston for Jaylen Brown? No way should that happen!


      Who decided that putting out a Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons trade is a good idea? Not the Celtic Knight I'll tell you that. When the Celtics drafted JB, . Fun fact: My father and I went to that first preseason game of JB in Amherst. We came across Jerry Colangelo at the time and asked him about JB, His thoughts were he wasn't that high on him. My thought at the time was sour grapes. JB came out and had a few thunderous dunks. 

     Let's start with Ben Simmons. The man can't shoot! He also doesn't seem like a very tough minded player. If he can't handle Philly, Boston Celtics fans will eat him alive. He's a very string defensive player, and can pass the rock efficiently, but other than that he just doesn't get the basketball juices flowing. 

     JB has grown every year he's worn Green and White. He came into the league a raw athletic talent, and he has turned himself into a complete player that continues to grow! He has a wonderful skill of getting to the hoop with ease. When he gets there he finishes smoothly, and when need be with authority. Just ask the Hornets. His midrange game is nice, and when on, his three point game is deadly. We have also watched him carry the Celtics on his back when JT is off. 

     Now if Simmons wants to be here to distribute to JT and JB I can wrap my head around that. There is no way Brad gives up JB to get Simmons, but if he does, Brad may need to be evaluated. Celtics fans know we need to add more talent to our team, not take it away. In today's NBA it's hard to attract talent, we need JT and JB to be the cornerstone's and build around them. Remember one thing fans - both of these ballers are still so young! Bleed Green, and if someone says Simmons for Brown kindly walk away shaking your head. Unless they can convince you other wise?

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?
