Re: Boston Celtics Fan Roll Call

Location: London, England (bet there aren't many of us here?)

Basketball fan for well over 25 years although coverage here is only rarely above moderate. British basketball is not that strong although the occasional team has done well in Europe and there have been some good players in the League as well as a few Brits, like Luol Deng and Kandi making it to the NBA and some good College players.

Why The Celtics?

Well the first time the play off were covered in any depth over here were the mid 1980s. Given the famed athleticism of the NBA (plus what I knew of other basketball) it struck me that this guy of near average height (for the NBA) who was slow and not a big jumper could be such a star. That got me following his team.

Came to the US for the first time nearly 3 years ago. September so no bball (did the Fenway tour though no chance to see a game there did see one in Montreal)

Of the current Celtics I like Paul Pierce, fine player. From limited chances to watch I also think West is going to be pretty useful. Not going to be an All Star but will be a very solid player. Not keen on getting A.I.

Past Celtics: The Legend, Bob Cousy, The Chief

Re: Boston Celtics Fan Roll Call

1. Location.

Virginia Beach

2. How did you become a Celtics fan?

Watching them when I was growing up.

3. How long have you been a Celtics fan?

Wow. Just call me Gramps. I can remember, albeit vaguely, when Bill Russell was playing for the Celtics. I suppose I've been a fan since Dave Cowens was playing, so something over 30 years.

4. Favorite current Celtic Player (s)?

Paul Pierce. He's the guy who's been there doing it for awhile.


5. Favorite former Celtic Player (s)?

Dave Cowens, Jo Jo White, Cornbread Maxwell, Tiny Archibald, Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Bill Walton

6. Anything else about yourself that you would like to add.

For many years I was a sports writer, editor and photographer. I left the business a few years ago, though.

7. How did you find Basketballboards.net?

A google search.

Re: Boston Celtics Fan Roll Call

1. Location. Barrington, Rhode Island.
2. How did you become a Celtics fan? Well, there are probably several reasons why: I grew up liking and playing basketball, I went to a Celtics game at a young age, and geographic location(I've never lived outside of CT or RI).
3. How long have you been a Celtics fan? Full-time fan = 5 years, part-time/bandwagoner = at least 8-9 years.
4. Favorite current Celtic Player (s)? Paul Pierce, Kendrick Perkins, Marcus Banks, Delonte West, Ryan Gomes.
5. Favorite former Celtic Player (s)? Eric Williams, Orien Greene, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, the intelligent Antoine Walker.
6. Anything else about yourself that you would like to add. I'm becoming more and more of an NBA fan, while the Celtics are my favorite team, I watch other teams, too. Nothing else that I can think of.
7. How did you find Basketballboards.net?
I found a link to this site through a post on another set of forums by a moderator here, and I've been looking for forums more specific to sports I like, one of them being basketball.

Welcome, Truthiness.

By the way, Michael Stewart is trying out for the Peoria Kings, an expansion ABA team, I think.
