Connelly 10 – If the Celtics Were a Horse – They Would Shoot Them:



Connelly 10 – If the Celtics Were a Horse – They Would Shoot Them:

1.Celtics Playoffs –

* I don’t get it – I really don’t get it – in Game 3 the Celtics (led by Jerebko) got in Cleveland’s face and won – then they revert to being the Cav’s bitches allowing Lebron to body you to the ground, pose under the basket and shoot threes while up by 35 points (imagine if the Patriots did that) – these guys make too much money to be hungry I guess – disgraceful

* Why not pick up full court, trap – just compete

* What Celtic would get minutes on that Cavs team – none

* Kryie Irving is one of the best finishers at the basket I’ve ever seen – Avery Bradley is one of the worst

* Marcus Smart threw up three three pointers in the first one minute and 15 seconds of the game – it was like Kevin Costner in Tin Cup just hitting the ball into the water over and over again

* Kyrie Irving’s legacy is being diluted playing with Lebron – he needs to leave

* Celtics gave up a combined 147 points in the last two first halves in the Boston Garden – how to reward your fans

2. Red Sox third basemen this year have struck out 44 times in 167 at bats

3. According to the website The Undefeated:

* African Americans in the MLB – 57

* White Americans in the NBA – 42 (I think the NBA should pour money into youth programs in Winchester, Hingham, Weston and Wellesley)

4. Baseball players destined for the Hall of Fame that didn’t make it:

* Nomar, Fred Lynn, Dwight Gooden, Vida Blue, Thurman Munson, Don Mattingly, Bob Horner, Steve Sax, Josh Hamilton, John Wasdin (I’m kidding)

5. Sandoval – Giants to Red Sox:

* Giants…….294 avg / .346 obp / $18mm total salary

* Red Sox – 238 avg / .287 obp / $52mm salary through this year

6. Gordon Hayward vs. Jae Crowder – hmm tough decision:

*Hayward – games over 25 Points – 30 / Games with at least 30 points– 15

*Crowder – games over 25 points – 0 //// Games with at least 30 points – 0

7. Amazing Stat – Tony Parker has more postseason points than Larry Bird – 4,012 to 3,897

8. Old School – Intentional Walks of Roger Maris when he hit 61 home runs – ZERO – Mickey Mantle was hitting behind him (USA Today)

9. Just a Little Bit Outside – Animals that kill humans (

1. Mosquitoes

2. Snakes

3. Scorpions

4. Crocodiles

5. Hippo

6. Deer (by car accident)

7. Jelly Fish

8. Cape Buffalo

9. Sharks

10. Bear

10. Randomocity

* If Durant came to Boston – Cleveland would still be favored

* Thought – is Gisele trying to go public with concussion to force the retirement issue

* MSN most iconic restaurants by state – Massachusetts was Woodman’s – over-rated

* Best ice cream shop – Kimballs

* Whats worse for baseball – unsold tickets / or tickets that are sold but people would rather throw money away and stay home

* Globe charges more, shows up later and doesn’t have yesterday’s news in it

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Neck-Deep Edition




It feels like New England Sports is currently being buried – in snow, controversies and soul-decimating losses.

The recent Patriots victory over the Steelers has been tarnished by subsequent internal-fighting. And over the past couple of weeks, the Boston Celtics have been defeated by some of the most middling of NBA teams.

The only auspicious emblem to be found would be the Bruins, who have won 3 games in a row. If the season ended today, the B’s would make the playoffs! But don’t worry, they’ll find a way to self-destruct before the season actually ends.

So when you’re neck-deep in it, like we presently find ourselves, what do you do? You shovel yourself out. Let this article be your utensil of liberation! It’s time for another installment of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Neck Deep Edition.

The Celtics Have a Bench Problem



Jayson Tatum

With the Celtics suffering a nonplussing loss at the hands of the Utah Jazz, it’s become apparent: This bench is gonna need some help. And they’re going to have to find this help from within themselves.

Ever since he was acquired from the Pistons, Marcus Morris was expected to be the most talented asset on the Celtics bench. Morris has the skills to be a secondary powerhouse in the NBA. Just last season, for Detroit, Morris averaged 14.0 PPG and just about 5 RPG.

But unfortunately his young tenure in Boston has deteriorated into “what ifs”.

Marcus has been afflicted with a lancinating and unrelenting pain in his left knee. Not only did he miss the start of the season, but he’s been sidelined yet again by this tenacious problem.

Without Morris on the court, Boston’s bench lacks that veteran’s heart and wisdom that he provides. They also are mathematically short in the scoring department, without the versatile big man.

As we saw Friday night at the Garden, somebody is going to need to step up – and fast.

Jayson Tatum’s Patience: The Deciding Factor



Jayson Tatum

There is currently a preponderance of NBA rookies who are dominating the league. We’re talking about 20-somethings (some even younger than that) leading their teams in nearly every statistical category.

This is no longer your father’s NBA.

Gone are the days of “earning your stripes”. In today’s game, if a player has the talent he’s going to be encouraged to use it.

Our favorite youngling, here in Boston, is unanimously Jayson Tatum. This 19-year-old kid has stormed the Garden like some new-school Larry BirdPaul Pierce hybrid. He’s the futuristic embodiment of “Celtics Basketball” – the silhouette for Boston’s modern logo.

But Tatum’s not even the superlative of this year’s rookie class!

Many “Green Teamers” would argue the cockeyed contention that Jayson Tatum is a shoo-in for Rookie of the Year. As heartening as it may be for the flourishing freshman to hear such high praise, it still stems from unchecked fandom.

I swear, there must be something circulating around the Charles River. It seems that Boston has become more and more generous, in recent years, when it comes to appraising young talent.

In every sport, we’re ready to give our kindergarteners their high school diploma, the very second they demonstrate their ability.

The homer expectations, surrounding Jayson Tatum, are in need of an adjustment. Let’s take a look at a few rookies, who are ahead of Tatum in the primary categories.
