Kemba Walker to Boston?

The newest Celtics offseason rumor that came out yesterday connected the team to Hornets PG Kemba Walker.

Walker, 29, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and the Celtics are said to be a “stealth suitor” for his services.

Well, with the cat out of the bag, you can cross out “stealth.” Continue reading “Kemba Walker to Boston?”

Was the Kyrie trade a Win or Loss for Boston?

August 22nd, 2017. It’s a day most of us remember. The Celtics were about to start training camp soon, and it looked as if the scrappy Celtics that made it to the Eastern Conference Finals from a year ago were on the same course… But that all changed with one trade.

What to Watch this Summer for Boston Sports Fans

Thank God I’m just a bandwagon Bruins fan because that list would have devastated me! Listen, I love sports as much as the next guy but hockey isn’t for me. Maybe next season that’ll change and I’ll understand the game more. But as of now, what should be a kick in the nuts 4-1 loss in a Game 7 feels like a love tap for now.

In this post, I’ll be joined by fellow writer Nick. We’ll be discussing things to look forward to (unless your a Red Sox fan) this summer. Yes, Boston just won 2 championships, but the grind doesn’t stop and neither do we! Let’s get this bad bitch rolling.

*Disclaimer: This was written before game 6 so the NBA side may change. Updates may occur as well. Enjoy!

Who To Watch (May 10 – May 16)

Happy Friday folks, welcome back.

What a difference a week can make. Imagine telling someone last week just how bad the Celtics would fail to finish their series against the Bucks? Truly embarrassing. The rest of the NBA has provided great playoff action. Last Friday Portland and Denver player the first quadruple overtime playoff game since the 1950s, the Rockets dug themselves out of a hole to compete in their series against Golden State, although the Warriors have a 3-2 lead. The Raptors and Sixers have swung back and forth, making you love what makes each good, while questioning their faults all at the same time, and we get a Game 7 because of it.  In the NHL, we have reached the Conference Finals. The Bruins are facing the Carolina Hurricanes (and beat them 5-2 last night) out East, while the St. Louis Blues are facing the San Jose Sharks out West. We had a crazy end to the Kentucky Derby where the horse that crossed the finish line first apparently broke a rule, and after instant replay, was DQ’d, the first time this had ever happen in the history of the race. We also had a no-hitter in baseball this week, courtesy of Michael Fiers of the Oakland Athletics.

Oh, and Kerm is getting ready to protest with Lakers fans at Staples Center soon.

Anyway…

How to say ‘Coward’ in 5 Different Languages

Spanish: Cobarde

Portuguese: Covarde

Somali: Fulayo

German: Feigling

Japanese: 臆病者

With the Celtics now down 3-1 to the Bucks, the ride is almost over for these heartless cowards. From being ranked 2nd best in the preseason behind the Warriors to now being the laughing stock of the NBA.

All season long the Celtics have told us to expect great things in the postseason. Jaylen Brown expects five championships by the time he’s 28, and it looks like thats not happening this year, or any time soon. But I don’t blame his hubris too much, even though the team has done nothing to prove they can get to the promise land, let alone win there. I put some of the blame on the supposed leader of the team. Mr. Kyrie Irving. Continue reading “How to say ‘Coward’ in 5 Different Languages”

Some sad news to report: Celtics legend John Havlicek has passed away at the age of 79

Havlicek joined the Boston Celtics during the midst of their dynasty in 1962, selected 7th overall in that year’s NBA Draft (the last pick of the first round folks).

He was actually drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 1962 too, but after some practices there, he decided basketball was where his future was going to be. Continue reading “R.I.P. John Havlicek (1940 – 2019)”

“They Should’ve Been a Dynasty” NBA Edition

In this edition of “They Should’ve Been a Dynasty,” we explore recent NBA teams that should have won more than they ultimately did.

Remember the rules, I see a dynasty as the following: a team that has won at least three championships in a 10-year window. It can be a smaller window (i.e. a three-peat), but I think the simplest barometer is winning three championships within a certain window of time, showing that you were the best of your sport, and you showed it repeatedly.

Ranges of time are flexible depending on the eye of the reader, but this is how I view them. Continue reading ““They Should’ve Been a Dynasty” NBA Edition”
