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!

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
