Comment on An Open Letter To Jeff Green by NBA Celtics Fan | Reds Army presents Fan Friday #51: “Hayley”

[…] The Celtics will be a huge part of my life for as long as I live. The Celtics give me constant inspiration; especially Jeff Green. He cops so much hate and criticism for being inconsistent and not showing enough aggression; but I’d like to see any of those critics doing what he does after major heart surgery. I think people drastically underestimate what he went through. Here’s...

Boston Celtics: What is the Celtics’ Biggest Weakness?

Boston Celtics: What is the Celtics’ Biggest Weakness? By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… The Boston Celtics have an odd mix of veteran and young talent, hence this is their biggest weakness.

Boston Celtics: The scoring of the starting five

Last week while talking about Jeff Green, I brought up how many games he scored between 0-9 points, 10-19 points, 20-29 points, and 30-39 points. I found it very interesting to see how often he scored a certain amount of points.

Boston Celtics: Jeff Green must step up

Without ever admitting or realizing it, I would argue that we all value consistency in our day to day activities more than we think. Consistency makes us comfortable. We go to work at the same time each morning so we know what to expect with traffic, and get upset when construction or an accident messes that up. We have a regular order when we go to our favorite restaurants, but...
