Hi!! I was a usual poster for the old CelticsBlog and have been only reading since. In the last few months I have considered to register again and state my opinions as an overseas fan (which may give you a different approach due to mentality diversity). I once helped CB when I translated a loooong interview into English to Vitor Faverani, now some years ago  ;)

I'm writing from Spain. Just to know our (Euro's) sacrifice watching games, Celtics home ones start at 1:30 am in my country  :-\ . I have finally decided to register because next months are crucial to our franchise.

Thanks in advance for a warm welcome, and... Let's go Celtics!!

Thanks for your welcome, guys. I have a couple of quick questions about the forums.

1. How do Tommy Points work? Are they unlimited? Can you give as much as you want or are there any restrictions (which I suppose)?
2. Do I have to write the Celtics city, colours, arena, etc every time I post? Or is it removed once you achieve a certain status?

Best regards :D

another Tommy Point for you from Los Angeles, CA.

I don't know what you mean about the color and city thing, I have never had to do that. Send an email to the mods.

Thanks all, I'm giving some TPs as a welcoming gift.

Yeah, Greece666. It's hard to be a European fan due to the schedule. Gracias por tus palabras  :laugh:

TP for knowing the struggle of staying awake to watch C's games.

I was gonna welcome you but since I'm new here and you were on the old CB, maybe it should be the other way around haha !

Please give us your input on European prospects.  Is Doncic as good as the hype?  What about Ntikilina?  Any one else we should know about?

TP and welcome, BE-Celtic  ;D

About the prospects, unfortunately watching basketball is very expensive in Spain. I've just seen Ntilikina twice and he is extremely raw, years away of contributing on the NBA. I would pass on him as a Celtic fan. Doncic is very talented, but also was Hezonja, for example. However, Doncic is having real minutes to show it and will be a lottery pick in 2018, even a high one depending on freshmen. He has the Yugoslavian competitor instincts, legit NBA 3pt range and is learning to dribble as a PG. I think we should take a C in 2018 if the Nets pick is high, but Doncic is worth a high pick.
TP for Chili as well!!

Bienviendo y hola amigo. Welcome. Please feel free to give us all insights on euroleague and other players.

I have learned a lot from our blog colleagues outside the US.
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.
