1. Sturbridge, Massachusetts (south of Worcester).

2. Through location, I guess. Much like how I'm a Red Sox, Bruins, and Patriots fan.

3. I have been a Celtics fan for around nine years.

4. Marcus Banks. I have been a fan ever since we drafted him. His passing abilities are improving and he plays good defense. He is also one of the quickest players in the league and he can blow by defenders off the dribble.

5. Milt Palacio (;)). I would like to say Larry Bird, but I never got to see him during his prime.

6. I enjoy long walks on the beach...:rofl:

7. Through a NBA draft website.

1. Boston, MA

2. I'd say through my dad and location.

3. Full time fan, about 5/6 years. Part time fan, 11-12 years. (When I lived in Europe)

4. Favorite current Celtics? Vet: Antoine Walker, Youngster: Banks and Perkins. These two are just great competitors. Banks is super fast and Perkins is super strong. Speed and toughness is what we have in these two.

5. Favorite former Celtic? Larry, just watching the replays of him you can see why he's considered to be one of the top players to ever play the game. The guy was smart, could rebound, pass, shoot, everything. And he was a fierce competitor and leader.

6. I enjoy long walks on the beach with Premier.

7. truebluefan made a post on the Celtics forum on the ESPN's message board. I just read at that time (ESPN wanted a "paying" email address, and I wasn't going to give them my msn/comcast one...pffft) and when I saw the link to bbb.net I never left. True story, I'm going to take it to E! True Hollywood Story pretty soon.

1. Philadelphia
2. I became a Celtics fan when Delonte West was drafted to the team.
3. Since June 24, 2004
4. Delonte West
5. N/A
6. I am a fan of both the Celtics and the Sixers, which many people find to be shocking. I once wrote a poem about Delonte for a school assignment, and later gave a copy to him. I have multiple autographs from DWest from back when he was #15 at SJU. Another member of the St. Joe's basketball team knew me as "the girl who loves Delonte West."
7. Just moments ago on a google search for a Delonte West fan site.

1. Location. Emerson College in Boston, MA for school. Quincy, MA for the summers.
2. How did you become a Celtics fan? I started as a front-runner, like most kids do. Suns and Rockets fan at the time. When Pitino came, I became a Celtics fan. Stuck with it too.
3. How long have you been a Celtics fan? Since Pitino messed things up, not that they were going all too well before. About six years or so now?
4. Favorie current Celtic Player (s)? Justin Reed baby!!! And Antoine.
5. Favorite former Celtic Player (s)? Reggie Lewis. My Uncle has a terrific story about him. He was a high school track star (state record holder for years in Cross Country) and went to Northeastern on a track scholarship. As a freshman, when the dorms opened early for fall sports, he was there. One day at lunch, a bunch of football players came up to him and told him to get in the back of the lunch line. My Uncle refused to go and was about to get beat when from behind him, Reggie Lewis came up and told the football team to back off.
6. Anything else about yourself that you would like to add. Not much. I need a job and an internship in the Quincy/Boston/T-accessable area, so help me out.

2. My stepdad was one, so I just kind of picked me up...he took me to a lot of games in 1995 and 1996 so I just started liking 'em. This is also how I got hooked on the Pats and Sox.
3. Almost 10 years
4. Antoine Walker, Paul Pierce, Ricky Davis, Kendrick Perkins
5. Bird, The Chief, DJ, Cornbread, McHale, Dominique Wilkins (even if he was only there for one year), David Wesley
6. I'm a Chi-Town boy, so I also like the Bulls, White Sox, Cubs (yeah I like both, my mom is a Cubs fan and my dad was a White Sox fan) and Bears

Thanks for the warm welcome, I had just been using bostonherald.com and luckily ran across this site. I love reading all these, makes me know I'm not the only one that gets aggrevated at the team at times!!!! Of course here in MS there's no one really to talk about it with, just other general NBA fans, not any actual huge Celtic fans like myself. I saw them play a few weeks ago in New Orleans and plan on flying up there for a game next season, will probably feel more like a religious experience actually seeing all the banners!!! haha, and the funny thing is my g/f knows for us not to do anything on the nights that the C's are on.
Thanks everyone

I was born 1956 and raised back in Plymouth, Mass.
I live in Okinawa, Japan, teaching elementary school on a US Marine Base, Camp Kinser.
I have been rooting for the Green longer than I can remember since the early sixties.
Old School Player has to be Bill Russell
New School Player has to be Al Jefferson -Russell should be his idol!
I found this sight searching out Celtic Information.
I want a strong take it to the rim player in this years draft (Rashad McCants or Hakim Warrick would be great.
Go Red Sox I'll be in the stands on June 29, 2005 :basket:
