Jayson Tatum has received much criticism, but light shines at the end of the Garden tunnel


      While this season hasn't started the way Celtic fans expected, there is light at the end of the Garden tunnel. If last night's any indication, Jayson Tatum seems to be picking up his stride. In 38 minutes last night, he shot 54.5 percent from the field and 41.7 percent from three. He scored 34 points, had 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. He even had a nice block, overall defensively he was hustling. One things for certain he needs help - cue JB on Friday
     
     JT has deserved the criticism he's received this year, but not to the extent in the media. From this writers perspective, he's still growing and learning as a player. He's only 23! Let's give this young man a chance. He will lead this team to glory once again. I know we all expect a leader who is loud and looks the part. JT is a different style of leader and player. 

     Watch him as he talks to his teammates in his own subtle way, working with them on the floor and during timeouts. Think back to the Jaylen putting Bridges on a poster and in the background it was JT showing emotion. His style is more of the quiet assassin, people who call out his D are missing what he does. Watch him closely and you can see his growth and effort. He's also a damn good passer, looking to get his teammates shots. 

     If last night's games is any indication he's found his way back to being JT. Come Friday night against the Lakers this writer expects a great game from him. Plus JB will be right there with him. Celtics fans buckle up Friday, JT will be ready to lead this team to victory while the chants of BEAT LA flood the Garden Parquet. Bleed Green Celtics fans. Celtic Pride for ever!

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

Rick Barry belittling Bill Russell on TV revealed the real fool

 It happened on national TV during the 1981 NBA Finals . Two of the announcers were Rick Barry and Bill Russell . When asked who was in a photo passed to Barry, Rick responded, "I don't know. Looks like some fool over there (referring to Russ) with the watermelon grin on. Russell repeatedly indicated the photo was of KC Jones , but Barry would have none of it. Worth watching. Russ vs. Rick Barry! The "fool with the watermelon grin" wasn't Bill. It was Barry. Don't believe it was racial, but the two didn't get along. Russ was clearly pissed.

Then Barry tried to pass the photo to Bill, and Russ wanted none of that either. "No. I don't want them" is how Russell responded, clearly pissed, but still maintaining that aura of class and composure. Alth
