Haha! I like Queen but it´s not really the reason behind the nick. I was actually living in Poland some years ago and I used to have my own poetry blog online. I don´t remember how it happened, but I ended up applying for the possibility of writing sports articles in Celticslife. For some reason I chose the name Bohemian because I want to believe my life was a little bit like my writings: dark, moody and filled with nice moments at night: good conversations with friends, literary workshops, interesting concerts and all that stuff. So...I don´t mind Queen but I prefer harder rock or Metal music haha. I obviously admired Freddy Mercury and I recall his duo with Montserrat Caballé for the '92 Barcelona olympics as well :P

Bohemian Rhapsody is a cool song, :wink: I hope I wasn´t too boring telling the story of my ¨name¨ lol


Okay, gotcha. I like your reasoning behind the choice. I can barely form sentences so I definitely don't know anything about poetry but what made you shift gears to wanting to write about sports? People get so touchy when it comes to sports, I have seen the things some writers have to deal with in the comments. You must have thick skin?

I don't know if I know much hard rock or metal, but I'm pretty sure I know some if I knew what fell into those genres. I love music and I don't care what genre it is, good music is good music. I even listen to music in different languages and I don't understand a word of what's being said. The sad thing, I'm what I would call pitch imperfect and tone-deaf, but I know good stuff when I hear it! It's a shame I can't play any instrument either. I can vibe with ANYBODY and their preferred choice of music tho. No, it's bad, I was listening to The Kaboomers one day and my little cousin (about 8) was visiting and ran in and looked at me like I was crazy and started singing along. She was deadass weirded out because I knew the words too. Yeah, I have a problem, but it's Alexa's fault for getting wrong what I asked her to play. I have listened to them a couple times a week since that (good) accident about a year ago (maybe longer). :crazy: :lol: :lol: Music is probably the only thing I like more than sports. It would slowly kill me but I could live without sports. Without music? Go ahead and get my urn!



(sorry guys, I'll get back to trade talk :o :D )


I have always loved basketball, it´s another passion. So by 2009 or some time later, I wanted to write about the Celtics too. In hindsight I think I mixed the epic of the battle with sports. My Celticslife texts were about heroics, about KG and Paul on the good side and the evil LeBron and the league on the other. It was fun, but If I had to do it again now, I would choose a more objective angle. It was definitely post KOol Aid, and tainted green everywhere. I just wanted to write and encourage Celtics fan, that´s all :P

And about music, I agree 100% with you. Good music is good music. When I was younger it was all metal or rock, the rest didn´t matter to me. Now, I listen to many styles...jazz, classical...anything that can be inspiring.

I can play some bass, If you can sing then we almost have a band ;) !!


Can I join your band (song by The Creation). I'm no Al Jackson Jr but I play with power and can keep time. Love anything from the 60s. R&B, Mod, Beat, Blues, Soul you name it. Love the ones that were forgotten especially. Ever heard of Inez and Chalie Fox, The Monks, The Fleur De Lys. Love it all!

Edit. And don't forget Geno Washington, Steve Marriot and The (real) Birds.

I'd take a vet min flyer on almost all of them if he had an open roster spot.

Think we're set for now though and I don't see any obvious trade candidates. Bruno/Romeo stick out as potential options, but think they'd rather keep Bruno for emergency depth and Romeo until/if he can stay healthy.

Fischer essentially says:

--Washington trying to sell Beal on taking the supermax-esque money next year and asking out later if he wants
--J-Rich was in extension talks from the second he got traded here
--Kemba for Al talks were happening at the deadline
--General expectation around the league is Beal takes the money in Washington, but admitted that it's no sure thing at all

Even with a spot, almost none of them are interesting to me. Maybe AB or Reddick as a mentor role, but both would be pushed out of the rotation if Nesmith keeps it up.

Yes, but he's young and uninjured, plus the odds of him developing an offensive game are higher. And he would be cheaper.

Anthony Brown can shoot it at least in college and Europe, 43% from 3 in 79 games over the last 2 years.

If we had traded Smart/Nesmith/1st/TPE for Gordon/Fournier, we would've had to pay them a combined $170 mil

Apparently he is heading to Dallas.

Is IT signing with CSKA Moscow? If so, I think it´s a great move.

I think if I take off my green tinted goggles, it always seemed like the obvious outcome of the Beal situation that he'd take the supermax in Washington and then take things from there.

Harden forcing his way to where he wanted has to give him some confidence that he'll be able to control the situation even after getting that insane kind of money. Dame as well sitting in PDX on a mountain of cash, seems like he still can escape whenever he wants.

It makes sense for the Wizards to drop the cash and take it from there as well. The alternative is them back in the basement with not much going on, so it's a pretty clear path forward.

The ONLY way I see Beal getting out early is if the Wizards truly suck this year. If they are looking like a true bottom feeder, I can see Beal getting so frustrated and not wanting to waste another year of his prime that he asks out and pushes his way to a us or a contender. The gap in the money from what he can extend for in Washington vs. anywhere else is so significant though, it's hard to imagine anyone turning down that kind of money.

I agree. The kid has upside. He was just not given the chance in Portland. He has the size, can shoot and post up. plus he’s buddies with Jayson. The clips got him for non-guaranteed deal. low risk high reward.


Precisely. He's the low risk / high reward player I was hoping the C's would sign, and seeing him accept a non-guaranteed offer from the Clips makes me wonder even more. If he'd have gotten a similar offer from the C's, I'm pretty sure it would have been a no-brainer for him with his best buddy on the team. Looks like there was really no interest in him from the get go.


The issue is with that is you risk pissing off your superstar because you have to jerk around his friend because he is the 15th guy on the roster. More trouble than it is worth. Use the friends thing to get a guy you want to come not to sign a guy who you are likely going to have to dump.


I agree that is a risk not worth taking. Also if Jayson wanted his buddy here, he would already be here. Jayson probably thinks he wouldn’t get the minutes here.

Yes, good signing by the Mavs. He's only 23 years old.
