Has a loss ever been a win?

 

 

It's engrained in me to never lose, true story all through grade school I never lost a one on one matchup on the court. I took pride in that. It took me a long time to realize that losing happens, and I learned from those times. This Celtics team has lost the Finals and now they must let it hurt and fuel them to a title run next year. 

Look at Jordans Bulls, the Pistons were in their way and set them back which eventually led to a Chicago three-peat and Jordans ultimate greatness. In losing Jordan found the will to never want that feeling again. Then after he came back from baseball guess what his Bulls lost to the Magic. History shows he came back even greater and led the Bulls to another three peat. If I'm JT who is a Jordan brand wearer, I'm texting MJ just like Kobe did and picking his brain about everything basketball. 

Let's look at Celtics Lakers in the 80s Bird and Magic used losing to one another to fuel them in wanting to win the next time they played. Using each other as competition to drive their greatness to a new level. If I'm the Jays I'm looking at the team that beat me and using that to spur my career going forward. Like those Celtics of the 80s the Celtics have their Coach and GM locked into unleashing their greatness. Not comparing them to KC or Red, just saying they both have that opportunity to be great. 

We should all look back on this run as a step into what is going to be a long run. Beating teams with HOFs, MVPs, and defending Champs is damn impressive. If next year we add a few pieces and our team uses this loss as fuel and we finally claim Banner 18. Then we can say that a loss can be a win! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

PS Side Note a good portion of Boston Media is toxic and doesn't deserve watching JT and JB. Let's see how amazing you were at 24/25.

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
