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?

Thomas Lane (Ret.)  Daniel Laplante - cold, calm, clever, calculating- Photo: YouTube   Elm Street  surfaces on four occasions in the Laplante saga: 1.)

He was  tried, convicted   and sentenced for the murders at  Superior Court , corner of  Elm Stree t and Gorham Street, Lowell, Massachusetts.

As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and his two daughters as an unseen

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
