Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X

Opening Night.

Celtics fans have been waiting for this game since Kyrie Irving took a dump on their Finals hopes last postseason. A fresh start, less mouths to feed, and we get a better look at the young core of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Last night was a blur.

Foul after foul, missed shot after missed shot. What’s worse: losing 107-93, being out rebounded 41-62 or missing 14 free throws? Because the Celtics did both and shot themselves in the foot.

But you know what? This is the first game of the season.

81 games left to fix whatever is going on… and for Boston, it’s not as bad as you think. Continue reading “Celtics Fans: R-E-L-A-X”

Celtics Draft Recap

The Celtics have had a whirlwind of change hit them the past few weeks.

It has become more and more inevitable that Kyrie Irving will not return to the team next season. This past week, Al Horford opted out of the final year of his contract with the Celtics. There was an assumption he would sign a team-friendly deal with the team, but negotiations broke down, and there are reports the Mavericks will offer him a 4-year, $112 million contract in free agency; translation: he gone.

The worst case scenario seems to have arrived, but some hope came last night in the form of the NBA Draft. Continue reading “Celtics Draft Recap”

If Kyrie Irving really is gone… Now what, Boston?

Well… it looks like the Kyrie Irving Era is coming to a close in Boston.

Some may have come to that conclusion a month ago, others (like myself) held out faith he would search the landscape of the NBA and find he wanted to stay in Boston, but reports are indicating Kyrie is all but gone.

Where to? Brooklyn.

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!

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”
