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.

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
