Thoughts from the Celtics Knight

 Trade deadline today, will we see any minor moves by the Celtics?! A wing and a big?! Or are we waiting for the buyout market?! It's been busy already with the Jazz, Fakers, and T-wolves three team deal. Kyrie heading to Dallas and KD heading to Phoenix. Unfortunately I think the Fakers make out in their deal. The Mavs and Suns on paper make out. Although the Nets have accumulated a group of guys who have various skill sets. 

Huge huge huge shout-out to Blake Griffin for always being ready to do what's needed. The C's had come out flat last night and after a few threes from Blake that energy shifted. You have to love a guy like Blake, who once was a star but now is your utility guy and is always willing step up. His defense on Embid was solid, his rebounding was sound, and let's face it he was an assassin from deep. Love guys like this! 

DWhite has proven to be an invaluable piece to this Celtics team. He's a solid point guard when needed, he can shoot the three, get to the hoop, and make the right passes when needed. On defense he's been spectacular! Defending like his life depends on it. Blocking shots like he was shot out of a cannon. DWhite will be a huge piece in the playoffs, expect him to be a key contributor in multiple wins. 

Shout out to Sam Money Man Hauser! Dude has found his stroke after getting the start in Detroit! Last night he was huge and his shots were pure! Nothing but net beauties! He's also rebounding and playing decent D for a guy teams pick on. 

Anyone else sick of hearing about the scoring record?! When Kareem held it, it definitely had value given his offensive game. Imagine if he didn't go to college and jumped to the pros that record would have never been broken. The person who broke this record only cares about one thing himself. That's evident in his team losing to the Thunder while setting this record. I saw somewhere a visual of iconic shots. One was Jordan vs the Jazz in the Finals, what was that result ring number six! The other was a shot of a man who's team was getting destroyed by the OKC Thunder who are above them in the standings. Result a loss.... 

Anyone else pumped for next Tuesdays clash of the Titans?? Bucks vs C's! Tatum vs Giannis! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

Rules of survival: When search-and-rescue turns into body recovery

 How the Hell did this happen? Two days after 19-year-old Emily Sotelo was supposedly dropped off in Franconia Notch (NH) at roughly 5:00 AM ET, Sunday, November 20, 2022 by her mother, to hike several mountains alone, the search continues for the young lady. Photo by Linda Lane The information from news agencies indicated that Emily started hiking the trails while it was still dark. She was supposedly wearing only sneakers, a coat and workout pants. I can persona;ly attest that the weather in the area was very cold with high wind speeds, and gaining elevation on the trails would only add to the horrendous conditions. Ms. Sotelo was reportedly a seasoned hiker, but had little or no experience hiking in winter. At the peaks, temperatures on that Sunday dropped to zero degrees with a wind chill of minus-30 degrees. It is beyond my comprehension to imagine a hiker-of-experience tackling that kind of travel - in extreme weather - with only basic clothes and few (or no) supplies. I have hik

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

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics.
