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.

Who to Watch (November 15 – November 21)

Welcome back to Who to Watch!

What a week, huh?

Last night was saw the Browns win a huge game to keep their season alive… only for it to be overshadowed by the actions of Myles Garrett (reports say he won’t see the field until the 2020 season). The Houston Astros were reported to be orchestrating a massive sign-stealing operation, specifically during their World Series season in 2017; those involved could include Alex Cora and Carlos Beltran, now both managers in the MLB. In lighter baseball news, Mike Trout and Cody Bellinger were named MVPs, while Justin Verlander and Jacob de Grom were named Cy Youngs. Andrew Wiggins is playing like an actual star, and Paul George made his season debut last night. The Chiefs lost their 4th game of 2019, and the Raiders (yes, the Raider) are currently the second Wild Card team in the AFC. In the NFC, we saw the game of the season on Monday night as the Seahawks beat the 49ers at the buzzer in OT. There’s a lot going on, and a lot of fun stuff to be watching as a fan… here’s what we’re keeping our eyes on Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 15 – November 21)”

Who to Watch (November 8 – November 14)

Sports, sports, sports… I though about making it sound catchy like a jingle, but I’m not that talented.

Welcome back folks, here’s what’s been going down the past few days:

Load management: love it or hate it, its part of the status quo in the NBA, but to the dismay of many; the New England Patriots lost, which of course means their dynasty is over yet again; Eric Bledsoe tried the classic “dribble straight out of bounds instead of passing the ball inbounds” play; Tony Snell is amazing; Gordon Hayward is back; LeBron James is NOT washed (congrats, Kerm); Anthony Davis is going to the Chicago Bulls (sorry, Kerm); the Cleveland Browns suck; Adam Vinatieri was sabotaged; the Miami Dolphins finally won a game!

It was a fun week, as always.

Now to next week. Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 8 – November 14)”

Gordon Hayward Is Back

Gordon Hayward continued his upward trend this season by putting together his best performance as a Celtic.

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.

Who to Watch (November 1 – November 7)

Welcome back to another edition of Who to Watch

The NFL trade deadline came and went, and we saw a monumental move… okay not really. Aqib Talib was traded from the Los Angeles Rams to the Miami Dolphins for a 5th round pick (the idea being Miami could receive a compensatory draft pick in 2021). The NBA is back in full swing, and Wednesday night saw fight night ensue between Joel Embiid and Karl-Anthony Towns. The fighting then continued on social media with loaded shots taken on Instagram and Twitter during the night; “this league!” The Warriors look to be in trouble, Aron Baynes might be the MVP this season, and LeBron James loves his tacos (oh yeah, Anthony Davis had a nice game too).

To our picks Continue reading “Who to Watch (November 1 – November 7)”

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”
