Draft Night Approaching


 Anyone else ever sit down during the draft and write out each team and who they picked in order. Well this guy right here used to grab a piece of paper and list all the picks and then go back and see who was gonna be good. Didn't matter if I was home or at my grandparents, it brings back good memories. 

Historically the Celtics have done pretty damn good in the draft, Russell, Cowens, Bird, Pierce, Tatum, and Brown just to name a few. The draft always gave me a feeling of hope going into the next season. Now that I'm older there's still that feeling but in a different way. For me now, is there a way to use the draft capital to bring in players who can help secure Banner 18. Look at what Brad did getting DWhite. If we are going to be an all in team now that Wyc said to spend shouldn't we be looking at our future picks and using them to secure known commodities?! 

As does any team the Celtics have made their share of mistakes. Anyone remember Michael Smith, total bust. How about Acie Earl, Eric Montross or Jerome Moiso. Yikes talk about some epic fails. Especially when you look at who was taken after those selections. Guys like Tim Hardaway, Eddie Jones and so on. Sometimes draft picks aren't that valuable at a certain point in ny opinion. Given the Celtics have a second round pick I don't expect much. 

In regards to the Celtics draft in which we can say what if, you can't help but think of Len Bias and Reggie Lewis to a certain extent. Len was coming in to a Championship Celtics team and he had the skill set of Michael Jordan. The possibilities are just endless. With Reggie we caught a glimpse of who he was and just think what he and Len could have done to keep the Big Three going and winning rings. 

Well those are my thoughts on the draft for now. Overall I'd say the Celtics have been damn good at finding legendary players along the years.

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?

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
