Celtics vs. Lakers tonight - "Birthplace of Education" vs. lights, warmth and sunshine


     What is a rivalry? Found this definition, "Competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field." We all know that the Lakers objective has always been to beat the beloved Celtics even if it means using refs to do so.  

Just look to the video evidence of game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. The Celtics were robbed.  To this writer it seems the Lakers are always chasing the Celtics. One team does it the hard and right way, the other does it with lots of help, read: the Pau Gasol trade, plus many others. Players just gifted to them over the years. 

     The Celtics franchise is never gifted any players through trades or free agency. They always seem to be ahead of the curve and the architect of that curve was Red Auerbach - outsmarting everyone, Then it was Danny doing the same getting KG, and Ray, thereby making every other NBA GM gun shy regarding any trades with Ainge. 

     Never in any game or series have the Celtics had the benefit of having the refs in their back pocket like the Flakers have over the years. Especially in Game 7 which still haunts Celtics fans. There have been plenty of special players on both ends. We all know their names. 

      While this rivalry is the most known one in sports let's look at these facts down below. 

     In 368 meetings the Celtics hold a total 42 game advantage! In the regular season it's a 30 game lead, and in the playoffs it's 12. The Celtics also hold the longest win streak vs the Lakers at beating them for 18 straight games. Yes, it's a rivalry but it seems the Celtics have dominated them, despite help from the zebra's. The Celtics have also won all their titles in the same place BOSTON! The Lakers "claim" Minneapolis rings as their own, shameful! Lest we forget the BUBBLE DISNEY PRODUCTION!


     Bleed Green Celtics fans! Let's get those Beat LA chants going now! Celtic Pride!

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.)  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 his two daughters as an unseen

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?

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
