Playing Without Gordon Hayward

The injury woes continue for Gordon Hayward in Boston.

Hayward sprained his ankle in the 4th quarter of the Celtics win against the 76ers on Monday, which was revealed to be a Grade 3 sprain. This type of sprain means ligament tears in some capacity. The initial recovery time is reported to be 4 weeks, but that could be optimistic. Continue reading “Playing Without Gordon Hayward”

Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?

As most of you already know, Boston has been the hub of sports for the past two decades, winning 12 championships in the process. From the Patriots dynasty (still going), to the Red Sox randomness of great seasons, to the Bruins having two more shots at the Cup, and the Celtics still trying to get banner 18 for the first time since 2008, the city is certainly trying to add more. All four teams have a decent to really good chance at winning one or a few during this new decade, which begs the question, who’s most likely to hold a trophy first this decade?

I’ll be answering this by making a ranking from worst chance to best chance. Hope you’ll enjoy and let me know what you think of my list! Continue reading “Which Boston Sports Team will be the First to win a Championship this Decade?”

What Adding Hayward Means

If you had told me prior to the beginning of the season that the Celtics would start 15-5, have a 10-game winning streak, and be a three games out of the top seed in the East, I would have thought you were insane.

Part of their success has been due to Gordon Hayward finding his old form, but he’s also been out for over 3 weeks… but he could be back soon.

The forward scored 39 points, grabbed 7 boards, and dished out 8 assists.

Oh yeah, and it happened on the same court where he suffered a career-threatening injury over 2 years ago.

Poetic Justice.

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”
