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?
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.
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.
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.

Harrison Barnes just made one of the dumbest decisions in recent memory. Imagine being wildly overpaid at a job you’re just mediocre at. Then, one day you say, “You know what, I’m going to quit to go somewhere else. Screw this, I deserve better.” Only to most likely get a hell of a lot less from another company who knows what they’re doing.
And wouldn’t you know, Barnes did just that. With one year and $25.1 million left on the contract, the small forward just said fuck money and decline to exercise his player option for next season with the Kings. Continue reading “Stupid is as Stupid Does”
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.
