Welcome to Boston Gordo !

After a wonderful 4th of July weekend in the fine city of Boston we all finally survived and even made it to the actual Independence Day on Tuesday. With a day full of beer, BBQ, fireworks, flags, a killer Sox game, Joey Chestnut stuffing his face with hot dogs and of course Gordon Hayward decision day. This decision was long awaited….

The Celtics finally received the #1 pick in this year’s NBA Draft, which we received from Brooklyn back in 2013. This was Trader Danny at his finest- This 2013 trade in which the Celtics sent Pierce, Garnett, and Jason Terry to Brooklyn as the Nets tried to build a star-packed team to rival the Miami Heat. In exchange, along with some role players, the Celtics received the Nets’ 2014, 2016, and 2018 first-round picks, with the right to swap picks in 2017, which we did.

First picks for the Celtics have actually panned out to be pretty decent these past few years:

2013 – Kelly Olynyk from Dallas at # 13 (Please just go back to where you’re from)

2014 – Marcus Smart at # 6 (Great defense and becoming disciplined)

2015 – Terry Rozier at # 16 (Great shooter from the arc when given a chance)

2016 – Jaylen Brown at #3 (Young Stud)

The story unfolded like this…Finally the Celtics were in the driver’s seat for the 2017 draft and Free Agent and trade possibilities were endless. Paul George and Godzilla Porzingas were a couple names brought into the rumor bin. With Paul George on the hook Celtics fans thought this was it, this is what we waited for. Trade the pick for PG, trade the player drafted for PG along with Bradley or Smart, do anything to get PG even as a rental. However the Pacers didn’t buy in and now he is on the Thunder. Thunder snagged him from us for Victor Oladipo and second-year forward Domantas Sabonis. Truthfully everyone says Pacers wanted him out of the East and I couldn’t agree more. Anywhoo the Celtics traded this first draft pick to Philly for the #3 pick and the 2018 pick with protections. The 2019 first-round pick from the Kings would only go to the Celtics if the 2018 pick does not convey (GM talk). Well the C’s drafted Stud offensive Shooting Forward Jayson Tatum from Duke. This was a solid draft pick at #3 and I was not angry about it one bit, especially after his first appearance with the green last night stomping all over the Sixers #1 pick Fultz. Tatum’s 21 points came on 8-of-17 shooting. He missed four of the five 3-pointers he took but had a couple of loud finishes, including a thunderous one-handed jam late in the first half that left the crowd oohing after he ripped through a defender to get to the rim. Tatum added seven rebounds, five steals, three assists and one turnover in 33 minutes. However, Celtics fans still wanted answers as to why we couldn’t land a veteran free agent or make a deal.

Well…Fireworks started early on the 4th of July. The news broke early Tuesday morning, it was safe to say Hayward and his agent were not pleased.

People were thinking it clearly leaked and they almost knew for certain it was true. But before you knew it the player’s tribune article “Thank you Utah” came out stating the facts. He apologized to Utah but that didn’t stop Salt Lake from burning his jersey.

In the end –We got him!

Gordon Hayward back with Coach Brad Stevens reminiscing on their Butler days. Hayward is coming off his best season yet avg 21 points per game. Now will this be the deciding factor on beating Cleveland next season? Hard to say, still looking doubtful but we’re one step closer…

When these two were back at Butler together they battled adversity, they will be on a mission here in Boston and that is to win—a championship.

Lebron James is worse than Caillou

I want to get one thing out there prior to the rest of this article, if you let your kid watch Caillou you are a bad parent and should be punished by the Judicial system.

Image result for caillou gif Image result for lebron crying gif

Caillou for those who have been luckily enough never to watch, gets hurt and complains about everything and I mean everything. No one is worse than him, except for one person…

Lebron has been beaten and battered worse than NFL lineman in his 14 years in the NBA. Nobody fights harder for loose balls, bodying in the paint, hustling back court and no one plays more minutes than this guy. Alright enough jokes let’s get down to business. LJ the King learned that there was no chance of winning this series against Golden State after the 1st quarter in Game 1. What does Lebron do after Game 1?

Image result for lebron james at his desk

He immediately goes home to his drawing board and maps out a way to locate an excuse for losing this series. He thinks of all sorts of shit from racist slurs scaring his family so he wasn’t in the right mindset to play; to missing his hair transplant appointments which made him superstitious. But no, he reverts back to the plan that has worked his whole career so why think of something new now. Fake an injury! As long as he makes it look bad everyone will believe him and if they lose everyone will still buy his products and bubble gum because he didn’t do anything wrong, injuries just happen! And Hey it’s just basketball. Lebron needs to cut with the excuses and win championships, case closed. Yes he has won championships with multiple teams but he is expected to!

Image result for lebron james next michael jordan?

Michael Friggin Jordan wills himself to 38 points against the Utah Jazz in a pivotal Game 5, adding to the Bulls star’s legend as a clutch performer and relentless competitor. Lebron does not compare people so let’s stop saying that.

I love Tom Brady more than anyone but when he said he’d love Lebron at tight end because of his size I always giggle because Lebron is good for one snap until he realizes it’s not basketball and it hurts being touched. Oh but Lebron’s 32 he’s going to be injury prone at that age. Well then, Tim Duncan and Tom Brady must be made of metal.

Lebron has let his “loyal” bandwagon fans down, this Warrior’s team is amazing yes but you’re supposed to be the greatest thing to ever touch a basketball you can’t let your team lose like this, possibly get swept and then fake another injury! Cavs are now down 3 games to none, no comeback will occur period.

C’mon Man.

Welcome to Smashville USA

Predators vs. Penguins has been awesome!

Because it’s the Cup.

Image result for stanley cup gif

This year’s Stanley Cup has been filled with home team dominance. The series lead currently belongs to the penguins up 2 games to 1 heading into game 4 tonight in Smashville.

The people of Nashville should actually all come together and attempt to change their city name to “Smashville”. The Smashville Predators has quite the ring to it. Beside the point, the fans in this city are a bunch of country hicks who love them some country, whiskey and hockey. They are just as fun to watch as the game itself.

smashville

After game 2 hockey fans throughout the league suspected the Penguins were going to run away with this one and would have to watch Sid the Kid lift his 3rd cup. We all wanted Ovechkin to win the East and play for the cup, he just needed it. However year after year it’s the same story for those fans on Capitol Hill and for now this is Sid’s conference. This Penguins team just knows the playoffs all too well; they know how to compete come playoff time and are so good in front of their home crowd; they’ve been here before they know what to expect. Unlike their counterpart, the Predators. This was a team that joined the league via expansion in 1997-98 after a stadium was constructed and the city failed to bring an NBA team aboard. This Nashville team had a rough start but for the past 3 years they have been extremely competitive and have the roster you need to hoist a cup.  Mike Fisher became captain and the team’s addition of star defense man PK Subban gave this city some hope. The real factor that proved this team was no joke was when they sent the Blackhawks home packin’ after a sweep. Chicago always finds themselves in the final 4 of the West, so this was an exhilarating experience for Nashville fans.

The Penguins were rolling from game 2’s victory at home, right out of the gate they scored first. But immediately after that goal the Preds responded with the help of their home crowd. This home crowd is electric. I have seen and witnessed electrifying home crowds on many occasions but this is on another level.

I’ve seen and witnessed outside stadium set ups where crowds gather and watch to support their team, but again this is on another level.

Fans go nuts and throw things on the ice, but hot girls and catfish is on another level.

I’m a Die-hard for the Bruins but you can’t go wrong having this as your second team…

 If you want to watch players go at it, fans instigating opposing players and get them ticked….

great scoring opportunities, power plays watch this series! Game 4 is tonight at 8pm in

Here are some highlights from Game 3:

Hate to say it but Cavs-Warriors are next Celtics-Lakers

Image result for noooooo gif

This Year’s NBA Finals boasts some of the greatest athletes in the world, there is no doubt about it. I know, we are all sick and tired of the Cavs and Warriors but this is exactly how every fan felt across the country in the 60’s -80’s. I cannot stand the comparison saying these two teams are now the modern day Celtics vs Lakers but in fact that is exactly what we are witnessing. The Celtics and Lakers have the historical existence and this rivalry even came back to entertain us years later.

Image result for magic johnson and larry bird

This rivalry did not die out with magic Johnson and Larry Legend; it came back through the spirits of Kobe and Pierce in 2008-2010. Boston and LA met a whopping 12 times in the NBA Finals with the Celtics remain at the top going  9-3 in those match-ups.

Image result for kobe and pierce

The Warriors and Cavs are meeting now in the finals for the 3rd time in 3 years and are 1-1 in the Final series against each other. What evidence do we have that could possibly foreshadow these two dynasties being the next big rivalry? Well besides ESPN telling us every second of every day that it just might happen let’s look at the common denominator here. Now I wouldn’t say its evidence per say, but it looks more like; oh shit we’re doomed to witness this for the next 10 years.

Image result for lebron vs curry

I chose 1962 and 2017 as the perfect years to compare both rivalries. Both are perfect time-frames to take a look at, you’ll see why:

(Put on that thinking cap skipper)

1962 NBA All-star players from Celtics and Lakers

Player, Team 
Elgin Baylor, LAL
Jerry West, LAL
Frank Selvy, LAL
Rudy LaRusso, LAL (injured)
Player, Team 
Bob Cousy, BOS
Bill Russell, BOS
Sam Jones, BOS
Tom Heinsohn, BOS

2017 NBA All-star players from Cavs and Warriors

Player, Team 
Stephen Curry, GSW
Kevin Durant, GSW
Klay Thompson, GSW
Draymond Green,GSW
Player, Team 
 Kyrie Irving, CLE
LeBron James, CLE
Kevin Love, CLE

In that era, that group of all-star Celtics players won 7 championships. That all-star group of Lakers didn’t win until 10 years later against the Knicks. The basketball championship methodology is that a big-3 wins championships but the only thing that beats a big-3 is of course a big-4. Much like the 1960’s Celtics the Warriors now have that big 4 and are a wrecking crew.

Now to Time warp in the Delorean…

Image result for delorean gif

Now in the present; The Warriors are up 1 game heading into game 2. Lebron might rally his troops for 1 or 2 games but this series belongs to the Warriors. The Truth Paul Pierce said last night on ABC ” If this dynasty doesn’t win at least 7 championships with this roster their legitimacy would be questioned for a long time”.  I agree Truth. Well here goes to watching the same two teams run the NBA for the next few years and hope the Celtics can entertain us in the meantime.

Never Forget…

When will the rest of the NFL just yell MERCY!!!!

Image result for belichick oj gif

Patriots have signed 31 year old, 5’7” Toledo WR: Andrew Hawkins, who played his first 3 seasons with the Bengals and the last 3 seasons with the Browns. Hawkins is that breakaway threat the Patriots have been missing.

Music to Our Ears

With the signing of Cooks and now Hawkins there are no more pieces missing in this puzzle. The threat from the air this year is going to be deadly, record breaking deadly. With the recent loss of Lagarette Blount to the Eagles, it was apparent that fans started to voice some concerns on who would make up for that yardage offensively and on the ground (especially on the goal line). The Pats have Lewis, White and Burkhead in their top 3 RB depth chart right now, those 3 amigos will have to carry the extra weight on their shoulders. However, now with the addition of Hawkins there should be no worry whatsoever offensively.

Hawkins is a guy that can play in the slot, who can break a zone wide open and when he sees green he’s gone. This guy has never had an elite QB before and has never surpassed 5 TD’s in a season, that will 100% change this season. Will Hawkins be able to adjust to this extensive playbook and offensive ideology from the Brains of Belichick? Ummm Hawkins graduated from Columbia University in 2017 with a master’s degree in sports management from the School of Professional Studies with a 4.0 GPA I think he’ll be okay. Will he get himself in trouble and be a problem in the streets? Hawkins has spoken about his faith saying, “I literally thank God every day for what I’m doing right now. I wouldn’t change the way I got here at all. It taught me so much. It made me a better person and a better man. I’m just so thankful for where I am, and I wake up every day and thank God for it.” Yea I wouldn’t worry too much about that. He is a saint, it is a surprise New Orleans didn’t pick him up. On top of it all, Brady has yet another Receiver under 6′ tall, gotta love it.

Get Pumped! August 10th can’t come soon enough.

Celtics sneak by Cavs in Game 3

Wow.

Celtics 111

Cavaliers 108

Image result for lebron crying gif

The Celtics snuck by with a win in Cleveland against LeBron and gang without Isaiah Thomas!? Am I surprised? Yes… because I along with the rest of this fine country lost money. Kevin Love started the game off strong and tallied 28 points in this one but Celtics were neck and neck and didn’t give up. Before the game this team walked on the court for warmups and looked like they were walking out of Manchester by the sea and yet somehow this team shocked the world last night. This year the headlining story was meant to be the Cavs vs Warriors, the two undrafted teams in the playoffs clash for an unforgettable championship duel of the best in the East and West. Well there’s a good chance that still happens, very good chance actually, I’d bet a kidney or two on it. But this game just made things a whole-lot more interesting. What did this game do for this series and for the rest of the playoffs?

  1. The Cavs took their foot off the pedal last night and at home. They thought they were going to breeze without Isiah Thomas on the court so they definitely took the night off, especially on the boards and defensively. However IT was tending to take the unnecessary 3 pointer when trailing instead of finding the open man and driving the lane and not being able to find the light at the end of the tunnel resulting in more forced shots and blocks. Love IT on this team but teamwork is going to win against the Cavs and last night they started to show that.
  2. This forces a game 5. This is one more game the Cavs have to play. Golden State loves that. The Warriors play to win their series tonight against the Spurs. They may have a full week off to rest and relax and get a practice or 6 in before the finals. This is going to urke Cleveland but the Celtics could play this to their advantage.
  3. The Celtics can now play their secret weapon. They’ve used their secret weapon all season and stopped when they started the playoffs. PLAY JONAS JEREBKO. Some may find this as a joke but this man can shoot the basketball. In 12 minutes last night he scored 10 points and was 4 for 4 and made 2-3 pointers. Hey Brad, play JONAS!

Image result for jerebko gif

4. Use Game 5’s home court advantage. They played so bad at home and       disappointed their beloved fans who stood by them all season. Use them and play for them!

Game 4 in Cleveland is tomorrow; let’s see if the Cavs put the pedal to the metal and blow them out again or if the Celtics can prevail with the precision shooting of Avery Bradley, Jonas and Kelly slong with Crowder collecting the boards but remember Jonas “the secret weapon” Jerebko doesn’t miss…
