Opening Night!

As we get older life seems to keep us so busy we forget about the joys in each day. Waking up first and foremost, but for today it's the return of our Boston Celtics. Think back to when you were a kid and the excitement you felt for the game of basketball. Getting to watch your favorite team and players. For Celtics fans it's the gift of getting to see what this team can be. It's a long season so win or lose take what you will from it. Just sit back and enjoy getting a glimpse of what could be a special year. 

Tonight we will see what Brad Stevens off-season plan was. Trading away a fan favorite for a Unicorn. If that Unicorn is healthy, the NBA better watch out. Not only is he gifted offensively but he's no slouch on D. Plus he's going against the team that drafted him so he knows what to expect in the big apple. We also get to watch one of the better point guards in the NBA. It's a Holiday type vibe he gives because he's a very good gift giver in the form of assists. Plus his offensive game is more defined than our former point guard. Defensive is his specialty and expect him to cause issues for Jalen Brunson. 

No better stage than the "big city" for the Jays to unleash their improved games. Personally I expect JT to be in the MVP conversation. His game develops each year and nows the time to bring his best and the best out of his teammates. JB has signed that lucrative deal, so I hope he's been working on dribbling the rock with his left hand. Ultimately I want to see them work hard on the defensive end. Defense wins championships! 

Expect to see DWhite do Derrick White type things. Solid on both ends and doing the little things it takes to win! He isn't flashy but just a solid player who fits well with this group. I am excited to see Payton Pritchard because he's been darn good this preseason. With his new contract nows the time to prove he belongs on the floor. We all know what Al brings to this team, calmness and composure. 

Side note let's see if Coach Mazzullas strategy has changed. Now that he has some veteran coaches on his staff expectations are things will be different. Get your popcorn ready and jump on the ride that is the Boston Celtics! Banner 18 or bust... No Excuses! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 🍀☘️🏀

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
