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!

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
