A sincere "Thank You" to our readers. We love every one of you.

 While the outcome wasn't ideal I'm forever thankful to this group of Celtics. My writings will always be geared to the Celtics and basketball, as you know lost my mom, cousin and could have lost my life this year. I started writing for Celtics Sentinel in the summer last year. Who would have guessed that writing about them would have been my escape and safe place. Writing about them brought me the therapy I needed after mom passed and when I was in the hospital it was my safe place. 

Now the outcome last night was not what we wanted as Celtic fans but when we were 11th in the East did anyone see this coming?! Tom and I had high hopes for this group early on and that never wavered.  Yet there was talk about trading everyone and firing Ime mostly from the Boston radio shows and other media people. Yet here at the Sentinel we stayed firm, didn't hide our frustrations but ultimately believed. 

We were part of a run that saw us throw Kyrie and KD out of the club, then in an epic 7 game series beat the defending Champs and Giannis. Then followed that up with exercising our bubble demons in beating the Miami Heat. Let's be real about GSW, they are a different animal and are willing to spend money! Hey Wyc you need to stop being so cheap. Maybe if you were willing to pay, we could have had a few more valuable pieces coming off the bench. The Warriors bench clearly outplayed ours. 

I'm so proud of this team, as the summer comes my goal is to examine our team and share with all of you. I also may dive into some retrospective pieces on past players like a did last summer. Needless to say I'm excited for our future! Celtic Pride! 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?

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
