Celtic Thoughts


 As we enter the post season I would like to thank Tom Lane for the opportunity to be a writer for his blog. The Celtics have always meant a lot to me. Ever since I was a kid. I was the out of place middle schooler still wearing my Celtics sweatpants and sweatshirt. My dad and I share a love for the game and this team, living in Western Ma we went to plenty of BBHOF events. Not to mention countless hours of watching the Celtics on VHS. Mom also made sure to lend her support and my closet was stocked with Green and White. Even an as adult she would find vintage things for me up until her passing. 

That's a small insight into me, with that said I Bleed Green. Even in the lean years I still rocked my gear. As we approach the playoffs I'm very optimistic about this group and coach. Those of you who have read me know it's been up and down in my writing during some of these games. Here are my thoughts, defense travels and we are stout, meaning I don't care where or who we play we can win. We switch like our heads are on fire. Individually we have great defenders starting with the Wolverine, RWill, and JT. As a team it's a well oiled machine that runs so smooth. 

On offense we have JT and JB who are straight studs. Our complimentary pieces are what the doctor ordered. We have bigs who play D, rebound and when needed score. A healthy RWill means success. We have knockdown shooters in PP and GWill. Guys like the Wolverine and DWhite aka the Badger who can drive and and knock down shots when needed. What's amazing about this group is they trust one another to take and make the right play. 

So heres how I see things playing out, whether it's the Raptors or Bulls in the first round we got this. Give me Miami, Philly or the Bucks in the second round or ECF and we got this. In all honesty we have shown we can beat everyone in the East. Whether we are healthy or not. Ideally I want to see us play the Bucks in the ECF and win. Beat the champ to become the champ. Bring on whoever the West offers up for the slaughter. Bleed Green Celtics fans!

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
