Second Round Thoughts


   So here we are it's the second round of the playoffs for your Boston Celtics. They will take on the defending champ Bucks and the great Greek Giannis. They may be short handed missing Celtic killer Kris Middleton. This has to be said never underestimate the heart of a champion. 

  This series has the markings of an epic slugfest, two heavyweights on a collision course. We all know how incredible Giannis is, he owns the paint and the rest of his game has developed nicely. However we have multiple players who can challenge him defensively. Al Horford, RWill, Marcus the Wolverine Smart and the Jays. Don't be surprised to see JT and JB take him on as they did with KD. 

  This Bucks team is built around the Greeks dominate post play, he's surrounded by multiple shooters. Thankfully the Celtics D switches like no other we have seen. Fully expect the C's to force Giannis to get rid of the ball. Who from the Bucks will take on the challenge of stopping the Jays? Not sure they can honestly. This writer is amped to see Jrue Holiday and Marcus go head to head. Two of the toughest players in the league, with similar skill sets to boot. Both can D up their opponent, and score when needed. 

  The Celtics role players will have to step as they have so far in the playoffs. GWill is going to need to score and D up anyone and everyone. PP will be called upon to be nailz on the offensive end. Look for DWhite to step up and make some big plays. 

  All I know is this matchup is worthy of an Eastern Conference finals. If the Celtics can be who we know they are fully expect them to win this series. It starts on the defensive end, that is this teams identity and they embrace it. On offense keep moving that ball and trusting one another. This series will be a continuation of the Jays coming out party where they exert their growth as true studs in the NBA. Bleed Green Celtics fans! Give us your prediction on who wins and why.

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
