In the End the Good Guys Won


Happy Easter to the everyone and Happy Palm Sunday to Orthodox Christians around the world. How many of you expected a finish like today?! What a game and what a day. It was good vs not so good. A team built the way you should through the draft, trades and free agency. Another built by two so called stars conspiring to build a superteam. Two of the most cantankerous players I've ever seen.  

Despite the Celtics not playing their best, when they needed to they came thru in the clutch. That last defensive stand and subsequent offensive set proved they trust in each other. They forced Kyrie to over dribble and pass the rock out to KD who was clearly affected by the Celtics D in which he threw up a garbage three that missed. Watching JB get the rock to the Wolverine who faked out two Nets that led to JTs winning shot while Kyrie flailed on D. A team that trusts each other is unstoppable. 

The Celtics will have to continue to get better on Wednesday if they want to go up 2-0. There is plenty of room for improvement, if they didn't miss so many easy bunnies they could have won easily. In that third quarter especially the refs were slanted in favor of the Nets. Defensively they frustrated KD and need to keep getting in his space and face! Wednesday night they will need to shut Kyrie down, and force other guys to beat them. Despite his performance it's clear the fans own space in his head. 

Your core 4 of JT, JB, Al and the Wolverine all had huge plays and moments which led to today's victory. Going forward we need them to continue this play and just clean up the turnovers. I'm still in awe of that final play with no timeout. Kudos to Ime for trusting his team, and it couldn't have played out any better. This group is still growing as a playoff team and today was the start of something special. 

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

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
