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!

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
