JT for MVP

      All we hear is about every other teams star, Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Ja Morant, and so many more. Here's my thought on why JT deserves consideration as an MVP candidate. He may not have the flash and backing of ESPN. He does however have Boston Celtics fans behind him. 

     This season we are witnessing true growth in his game. His passing abilities this season have shown that he knows basketball and where the ball needs to be. So many time this season he's found the right player when he's double teamed. Whether it's finding GWill in the corner, or getting it to his teammates for easy baskets. He's learned to pass so well when double teamed that now opponents need to be honest on the defensive end. Given how well he's been passing, I think he's been watching some old Larry Bird footage. 

     His rebounding has been developing throughout the season. His body transformation has helped him grow into a very good rebounder. He has the ability to average double digit rebounds regularly. The fact he isn't afraid to bang with the bigs has shown he's becoming an all around player. When a star is willing to crash the boards you gotta respect it. 

     Defensively he has the length and quickness to be elite. This season under Imes scheme he's grown immensely. He has shown he can shut down who he's guarding, he also isn't afraid to switch and guard other elite NBA talent. He would be wise to watch some old MJ tapes and learn from the Goat on how to take your opponent totally out of a game.

    We all know he has every trick in the book when it comes to scoring the basketball. He can drive to the hoop as well as anyone. He has learned to pass up threes by going to the hoop. He does it as gracefully as anyone. He has a nice midrange game and we all know how well he can knock down the three. If he could harness posting up more and building in a regular fall away jumper he can be unstoppable. 

    As well all know he will never get the recognition other NBA stars do. He does have a true all around game that needs to be recognized by the rest of the league. 

   Expect him to be a huge reason that the Celtics make a big run in the playoffs. He has everything needed to have a transcendent run as Giannis did last season. People may say I see things with Green colored glasses but I really feel this way. Time will tell but someday JT will be an MVP. 

Bleed Green!

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
